Sorry, it's just a reddit thread, but I thought it was charming as hell.

Her response to the keyboard or mouse request is great!

I was watching that thread for hours. I love how other balancers,some of whom she apparently knew, drop by and balance some stuff as well.

OK reddit you have won me over.

Aww, shucks - not every post is charming people balancing things?

Don't be mad guys, but I thought some of those comments were really funny.

Whenever there is a Reddit post on Metafilter, and I get immersed in it, I am always surprised when my back button takes me to mefi. I get sort of disoriented for a minute.

If you post a Reddit link which is a link to a link, I think you should be permabanned.

a few things i have recently dropped onto my face in a tragic and failed attempt to recreate the awesome:

- stapler
- paper clip holder thing
- post-it dispenser
- box of tissues
- teacup

sigh.

elizardbits, if you want to learn how to balance things on your face, start with long things like brooms. They are much easier (because they take longer to fall off).

What's craziest about this is that she has all of this stuff on hand.

considering i am already having bailey's and ice cream for elevenses it is probably not the best time to gallop into the kitchen and grab the broom away from the cleaning lady

I love elevenses.

No, the trick is to use the stapler to attach those things to your face, that way you only have to work on your pain tolerance and not your sense of balance.

A true tale - we used to balance things on our faces all time for fun. Baseball bats were pretty easy, chairs not so much.



We lived in the middle of nowhere. It makes you a little strange.

I'm bored, what should I balance on my face?

The hopes and dreams of ten thousand awkward guys browing reddit to find pictures of attractive women and picture a future involving a fixed-rate mortgage and "date nights" once a month?

Alright, if no one else is going to say it:

These are photographs, y'all. She only has to 'balance' the stuff on her face for 1/4 second, tops.

That girl is mental...by which, of course, I mean that her mental protuberance is quite well-developed and agile.
