HNT feat of strength with clickypic

Click to see how I did it.

Yes, if you slowly bake the phone book for several hours in a just-warm oven, the paper dries out and goes so weak that anyone can rip it, even me.

You could try it too, but this blog accepts no responsibility if you turn your oven up full blast, set fire to the phone book and burn your house down.

But if you use this trick to win a bet, this blog is entitled to 10% off the top of your winnings.

For younger readers, an "oven" is a sort of clockwork microwave.
