Suspending water without a cup

Hmm. Who would have thought this would work?

But seeing is believing. Huh?

A cup and advanced technology, I'd say.

Re: Suspending water without a cup

Internal power, whole body motion and silicon reeling. That twist is tricky.

What is silicon reeling?

I just assumed that he had a clear cup inside the decorated cup...or something along those lines...

...with internal power, of course.

Re: Suspending water without a cup

Silicon reeling? Whole body glass cup lifting, tilting and twisting. Methods using non-silicon items for lifting and manipulating liquids risk delivering life giving amber nectars at incorrect temperatures and missing essential amounts of ki. No doubt you can figure out where the reeling and/or weaving part comes in.

Oh. Silicon reeling....

Got it.

Definitely a highly refined skill.

Thanks.

Re: Suspending water without a cup

Big deal. I can suspend water without a cup. All I need is a freezer and a couple of hours.
