Turns out, you can do the broom challenge any day

Have you tried the broom challenge yet, BUZZ Fam? Not to worry, turns out, you can do it anytime of the year.

On Monday, a viral tweet suggests that NASA said that Monday was the only day in the year the “standing broom” trick would work, because of the earth’s gravitational pull.

And as with many other challenges on the internet, people ran with it. Posting videos often in shock at this magnificent trick.

But as it turns out, it’s not much of a trick at all, it’s just balance.

The center of gravity is low on a broom, and rests directly over the bristles. Which means, if you can get the bristles positioned like a tripod, your broom will stand upright any day of the year.

Ah well.
