    Well i do have an explanation for the tee bag rocket, its to do with my model of gravity, and thanks, i will use water charges as one more of my proofs. In the teebag experiment, the amount of mass was burned away, leaving a structure light enough to be lifted by the energy created in combustion, this ten following the air dynamic, and heating surrounding air assisting in the rise.

    The first one works because the finger that’s closeset to the center of mass dosent move because there is more weight on it. When the other finger gets closer than the other one the weight goes to that finger and this alternates until their both in the center.

    For the phone the weight isn't distributed evenly as you think. If you place a pin in the center of height and width you'll find that it starts falling to one side, now that you give it acceleration it will will turn the the heavier side.

    As for the teabag, when you lite it the heat fills the inside making the air denser.
    Once it has gotten to a certain size and weight the pressure will have to decrease, as the faster moving molecules will rise lifting the tea bag.
    (To better understand this, lite a fire and a release a small paper directly above and not touching the flame, it will rise until the air is in a normal density)

    the first is easy the finger closer to the point of mass has more weight on it ->more friction and the ather finger moves and the tee bag flys becaus of the heated air reising taking the bag with it the rest i dont know

    1. Cane: From the ends the pressure will be greater on the finger closer to the center. This increases friction on that finger allowing the other finger to move. This is why the fingers do not move at the same rate.

    2. Phone Flip: ? best guess: the long axis is unstable - like placing an egg upright on its small end. A tiny momentum in left-right axis will increase the instability until the phone also flips left-right. However the instability quickly reaches equilibrium otherwise the phone would start in 1 direction and end in another.

    3. Magnetic Cup: ? best guess: the water if following the magnetic lines of force emanating from the charges on the cup.

    4. Magnetic Cereal: cereal has sufficient iron in the ingredients to be attracted to magnetic force.

    5. Teabag Rocket: Heated material becomes lighter as a result of expansion - thus hot-air balloons. The teabag is also heating air. When the teabag burns enough weigh off, the lift provided by the rising air is sufficient to lift the teabag remains. The flame continues to heat the air and provide lift. Once the teabag burns out it will cool off and start to fall.

    Cane changes its level of friction with your hand based on how far off of the center of gravity you are. So as long as both hands are moving you always reach its balancing point.
    Cell phone is not balanced thus centrifugal force applied to it will always seek out its true mass axis instead of your forced axis.
    Water moves closer to the cup because of the air currents it creates. Side closest to the cup is in a vacuum.
    Not sure on cereal could just be lack of surface tension resisting the cereal and minuscule amounts of iron in the water allowing the cereal to move with the magnet. Just a nerdy dads guess.
    Teabag lifts off when its mass is less than the lift generated by the flame.
    Hope I got them right! Now off to see in the comments.

    Cereal move to a magnet cuz it has actual iron particles inside
    The flying teabag paper flies because it fire it lighter than the air which is why the flame go up so the fire is strong enough to carry the burnt teabag up

    1) The imbalance on one side of the cane causes gravity to create greater friction against the finger on that side, meaning that finger will stick, while the other keeps sliding - until they even out.
    2) Flipping the phone with its flat side against the wind creates greater opportunity for air resistance to exaggerate any initial discrepancy between the phone's centre of mass, and its centre of measurement. This means the phone will start to twist to one side.
    3) Not immediately sure. Good question.
    4) Iron in the cereal.
    5) The heat creates a rising column of air, sucking in cooler air from the sides/bottom. The airflow isn't enough to pull the material up at first, but as it burns down and becomes lighter, the remnants of the material are sucked up with the last of the hot air.

    Now a question for you, Mr Veritasium: From what Continental European heritage did you get your finger counting style? I notice that when you held up your fingers to show "three", you included the thumb. This is the Continental style (starting with the thumb as "one", then adding the index finger as "two" etc) - as opposed to the British and American style, where we start with our index finger, and only add the thumb as the last one to make "five" :)

    I'm not sure but why tea bag paper takes off after its fully burned because as it gets fully burn then what are we left with remains of the burned paper so as hot air rises up it takes tea bag remaining along with it as well... I don't know its right or wrong.....

    For the first one: it's because the normal force that is included in static and dynamic friction formula is greater at the hand who's the nearest from the mass center of the cane (we can ascertain that with momentum force calculus) P.S.: excuse me for this poor English. Hope you could understand what I meant

    5: When it burns off it becomes so light, that the heat from the fire can lift it. Because heat travels up, it brings the tea bag with it when it gets small, and light enough

    the phone components don't have the same mass, and aren't distrebuted equally, and if you record a flip in slomotion, you'll see that it always flip in the same direction, no matter with which hand you flip it, or how you place your fingers while flipping it

    cereal is magnatic becasue if you read on the box, it contains iron, and if you mix a cup of cereal with half a cup of water in the mixer, and put them together in a bigger cup, and put a strong magnet on the cup, you'll get a black spot (spoiler alert: it's iron)

    1. friction increases on the finger that is closest to the center of gravity, therefore making the other finger slip.
    2. the center of mass is not in the center of the phone.
    3. the magnetic field of the cup warps spacetime causing the water to follow the curved space.
    4. the cereal has iron in it
    5. the rising column of hot air creates a lower pressure above the tea bag

    the phone one I think is because of what's inside taking it off balance since the weight isn't equally distributed. the Tea bag Rocket is just the fact that once it burns it gets so light it floats. The cereal is because cereal has Iron in it.

    so the tea bag one is pretty easy. The tea bag itself has mass. that mass is heavier than air and it is somewhat rigid so it can sit on the plate and hold form. That mass is also flammable so when it is lit on fire it will burn. As it burns down the mass itself becomes less and less. The energy from burning that mass is transferred into the air. The air then begins a small convection cell and begins to churn. Eventually the energy that was burned from the mass to create the convection cell becomes stronger than the weight of the burning tea bag so the bag will raise.

    1. The weight on the cane will be more or less depending on where your fingers are making your fingers end up where the weight is equal.
    2. When you flip it will have at least a tiny tiny amount of spin and when it gains speed it will spin faster and seem as though you cant make it spin straight.
    3. Who knows maybe it is the small amount of lead in the water
    4. Idk lead?
    5. Hot air rises and when the fore burns away the weight of the top of the tea bag the bottom is left and the weight of the remainder of the tea bag is little enough weight for the fire to carry it.
    These are all random prediction I made throughout the video and decided to comment. These are probably all wrong.
