How to Levitate

I was reading Bill Tancer’s book Click last night. I generally hate this sort of book. So practical. But Tancer’s smart and had access to a ton of data, so whatever.

At one point, he lists the top ten “how to” queries in the US for the four weeks ending 12/21/2007:

1. How to tie a tie
2. How to have sex
3. How to kiss
4. How to lose weight
5. How to write a resume
6. How to levitate
7. How to draw
8. How to get pregnant
9. How to make out
10. How to make a video

He then completely ignores this truly interesting and unexpected insight into the American psyche: that we all wish we could levitate.

I learned to levitate from Henry Sugar, natch.
