Doing this is kinda addicting. Moms will not be happy to find out that all the kitchen's flatware have been twisted.

Re: Fork bending
That was a pretty neat thing to read. I'm not too sure if there's any truth behind it and I tried it for myself. Actually... I think what I did was warm the metal up fine and then twist it, haha.

The part about the energy thing though caught me off guard. I was feeling what he described before I read it, so maybe there's something behind it dunno.

Re: Fork bending
I actually have no idea what to think about it, but I noticed some things while doing it:

I tried it alone and couldn't do it. Then later I was with 2 friends and was going to tell them, grabbing a spoon, "see, I tried it but couldn't do it!", and demonstrate how I couldn't do it, when I started bending and twisting it in amazement hahaha. So that thing about it being easier when you're with someone else, and not concentrating too much, is true. After that I tried again alone with other forks and spoons but hardly concentrating, being kinda distracted, just doing it as if it was natural, and the results are on the pictures.

I also noticed that the metal became pretty hot while/after bending. And it couldn't just be the heat of my hands - my hands are cold lol... and I wasn't holding them for too long.

Oh, and I didn't do any of that channeling part, haha.

Re: Fork bending
I predict that I will be carrying a bit of cutlery around with me for the next few days until I either get it or get bored trying. It does sound like a fun thing to do. And heck, I channel a lot even when I'm not trying to bend anything anyway.

If it doesn't work now maybe I'll try again in spring. I can't seem to NOT channel then.

Edit: That sounds like a good plan actually. I can follow my husband around the house saying "Look! It doesn't work!" The worst that can happen is that I will get tickled severely. <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin -->

Re: Fork bending
I did get the neck to bend to an acute angle and displaced one of the tines while my husband argued at me about my choice of destruction materials and my daughter was telling me severely that forks were for eating, not squishing. My distraction techniques might be a little too good. After that I couldn't seem to make it go soft again. But if nothing else, it has provided a bit of entertainment for the family!

(Actually the idea of strength without force is an interesting topic for me. It's sort of the basis for Tai Chi. Well, that and good body alignments and basic physics. But some of the stuff the masters do seem to go beyond what we know of physics or biology.)

Re: Fork bending
Wait... I don't get it. It all looked pretty normal, to me... are forks not supposed to bend that way? >_>;;

For me, spoons have always been "soft"... most of the times, my spoons would wilt under the small weight of whatever I am eating. It's quite annoying, so I have to bend it back most of the time.

The "heavy" ones don't bend under the weight of the food, but they're not exactly that much harder...

What an oddity! I never knew it was considered odd o_O;;

If I stick a spoon into something, such as ice-cream, and try to bring it to my mouth, it bends. Like I said, incredibly frustrating -- I seriously have to get the denser ones to avoid this problem.

But, well... this is common. I never once thought it wasn't supposed to happen. Spoons and forks seem pretty fragile...

Re: Fork bending
Sounds like you have the cheap aluminum ones. I dare that ice cream of yours to bend my great grandma's old stainless steels, those things are hard enough to be used as war tools.

She does have a point, though... they are rather fragile. You can bend spoons and forks, no matter what they're made of, relative easy once you start bending them back and forth. It heats it up very easily, and some of the things on that site I can do relatively fine once they're warmed up like that.
