I know this is not quite "on topic", but speaking of the move, a lot of the emoticons, that the site used to support broke. There are a lot of old threads where you can now see things like :somecode: riddled throughout the posts. I do like what you guys did with the site. It looks a lot more professional now than it did in the old days. Though I do miss the bill duff themed trollshido.

So in that regard, maybe some of them aren't as useless as the fire extinguishing trick, even if it is still a parlor trick. Its good psychological conditioning. Just thought I would throw that in there.
Special thanks to all those that provided an explanation. I'll relay the information. Thanks!

It's hard to hear him speak but yeah he confirms what's going on is a Bernoulli/Venturi air pressure effect.
