My brother placed his toothpic( wooden) on the metal part of his bic lighter. Forming a T, with the toothpic being at the top of the T.It rotater could towards him as he moved. he walked a few feet away and it jumped off of the lighter towards him. I could make it move if I put my finger about an inch from it. It acted like a magnet, sorta. We were in storm conditions.Tropical storm Debbie was on her way in and in fact his electric went out for a bit.Thanks!
