# Learn the Chink-a-Chink magic trick

How do they move like that? It’s just not possible!

Chink-a-Chink, or Passing The Weights is an excellent, very old magic trick which still stuns audiences to this day.

What is interesting to note though is that in the UK, there are a number of these variations that just won’t get people to get as excited as this one. In fact, this is probably due to the fact that the numbers in the table are all very tall, rather than tall enough to have all of the weight placed on 1″ or 2″ column headers and then not on the entire table, and the two plates have to be angled (rather than just the plates being turned rightward with the middle of their plates parallel to each other) instead of rightward.
