What the hell?

Is the car running? Is the mug empty? How is this possible?

Empty mug, no engine. I put it on the hood while I was doing something else, and it did that. I think it's a combination of the rubber on the bottom, the gentle slope of the hood, and the very slight flex of the metal underneath as it rocks. It's always effectively losing altitude, and so it gains kinetic energy from gravity, a tiny bit at a time. I guess. So I set up a tripod and reproduced the effect- it took 8 tries, lol. I added the Xmas lights for atmosphere :lol:

I was blown away.
Showed it to Mary, she basically wants those 3 minutes back.

LOL I can understand that. When I first saw it happen, my first impression was "poltergeist :o "
