This tutorial will explain how to balance a salt shaker.
A seemingly useless skill, this is a great party trick and especially entertaining at the bar.
Note: This talent takes a great deal of patience, but with persistence and a steady hand, you too can master the art of "cool when drunk" party tricks.
Step 1: Set Up
The first thing to do is pour some salt from the shaker on to a flat hard surface (the table.)
Use plenty, after you do this a few time you'll know how much to use.
After pouring the salt out, bunch it into a little clump as shown. (fig.2)
