Tilting a salt shaker

  1. Mar 24, 2012 #1
    So I go into this restaurant, and I got bored. So, I tilt a salt shaker on a sturdy table and let it go.... It doesn't tip over.... How do you think this occurs?

    There are a million ways it could occur.

    This needs to be moved to the Games forum. It's a riddle.

    If you're serious about posting it in the S&D forum instead because you want it analyzed, then it behooves you to give us as much detail as possible, not as little detail as possible.

    I'll give you some room to figure out what you want, and if not forthcoming, I'll request it be moved to a more appropriate forum.

    I know this one: you shake a little salt on the table first.
