I've said, I'm no expert on forkbending. I've tried to
explain my own experience with it, but people keep emailing
me asking how to do it. I guess the best I can do is
to spell out step-by-step what I was told at the party
where I "learned" to do it, which is reinforced
by descriptions on other sites, particularly regarding
Jack Houck's famous "PK Parties" (for those
of you too lazy to visit the sites I've linked to). There
is no "Secret",
it doesn't involve anything creepy. You won't be conjuring
up spirits or casting spells or getting possessed
by Abraham, although for all I know the "Law
of Attraction" may have something to do with
it. I really don't know WHY or HOW this works, it just
can't guarantee results, but I've done the best I can
at explaining it in detail - the rest is up to you. Good
ONE - PREPARE
want to collect a lot of unwanted cutlery - otherwise,
once it starts working, you'll end up without a single
functional fork in your house. Which is a little bit
annoying once the euphoria of bending them wears off.
The best ones are those chunky big old-fashioned ones,
usually silver-plated brass. It will work with stainless
steel ones just as well, but the core metal in a lot
of stainless cutlery is really cruddy, and they snap
much easier that old-fashioned ones. Whatever the mysterious
process is, it certainly stresses the metal, and a
snapped fork is very disappointing.
made me a forky Valentine when we first met in 2003.
He's so sweet! No wonder I fell for him :) (We got
married in 2006)
a variety of sizes, from teaspoon right up to big heavy
dinner-forks. You might want to start with a little spoon,
but once it's happening, you'll want to do something
bigger to prove to yourself it's not just mind-over-matter.
As you can see from some of the ones I've shown here,
you can bend some very heavy cutlery into beautiful graceful
curls - that's the kind of thing that makes you convinced
that you're not just using brute force without realising.
Stores, Op Shops, Charity Stores, Secondhand Shops
or whatever you call them in your country, are the
best place to buy the right sort of forks & spoons.
Buy as many as you can.
