    Alright, now THIS is something worth looking into! Good, clear video (albeit low framerate but meh). They also looked into the first possibility that came to mind - a string from the window... yet the window cannot be opened.

    I've experience with those glass toppers - they are fairly substantial, so this was no gust of wind (or else virtually everything aside from the cash register would have been removed from the counter). No shaking/vibration, so no earthquake/tremor.

    Is it possible it's a setup, such as with a low-visibility (monofilament) fishing line? Perhaps... but the way the thing moved was odd for something like that.

    Congrats MR, you have one that is worth really investigating!

    Thanks. It seems a valid case to me. If I'm not mistaken, we actually see the topper suspended in the air for a moment before it crashes on the floor. Its hard to make it out due to the poor quality of the video. But that's what the reporter said.

    Indeed - either way, even if it were just slide across the counter, that would still take a fairly substantial force - more than an open door would cause, for example

    The movement seems to be consistent with something pulling it in the beginning and then coming loose.
    At any rate, there is no way that I can see anyone can come to any conclusions. Except that, in absence of extraordinary evidence for a supernatural cause, a natural cause must be assumed.

    I think that is due to the poor frame rate. We're essentially looking at a series of photos.

    I look at the ceiling towards the back by the doorway. I see it changing brightness which would indicate to me some kind of manipulation by someone stopping the camera then starting it up after they moved the dish . They did this a few times so that it would seem the dish was moving but in actuality it was them.

    Stop motion? It's... possible... but if they get caught out on it... whew... fallout would be near-nuclear!

    Let me guess, a warm cake under glass heats up the air, which pops the cover off, which falls.

    I don't see why a change of brightness would indicate the stopping of the camera. Do things brighten when cameras stop? No..

    A warm cake lifts a heavy glass cover and shoots it across the counter. I don't think so.

    Sure, if it wasn't on there tightly, could have been on an angle. It does seem from the video that the thing tilted before it fell. Or the glass pedestal had a defect that caused it to crack with air pressure changes. These are all more plausible than magic.

    Sorry..You can't twist the laws of physics here. A glass cover doesn't "fit tightly" on a cake pedestal. It just sits there and due to its weight doesn't move. You know..gravity? A warm cake isn't going to blow it off and make it fly horizontally 4 feet over a counter. It's just not. I've seen what heat pressure does to lids on pots. It may slightly push one side up like a mm or so and then release the pressure. Never does a lid get blown off. And especially on a warm cake. Try again?

    I can't twist the laws of physics, but you can break them entirely by inferring that there was a supernatural event?

    If not a ghostly cause... a plausable explination is... a blast of air under the cake cover from a tire pressure hose woud blow it off just like that.!!!

    Or someone put the top on crooked. But no, that's not possible, must be ghosts!

    So if this poor quality video were authentic, then ghosts are real, aliens are visiting Earth to dry out cakes (well, one anyway) and everything Magical has told us in 5,000 postings is true? Is that about right?

    If the supernatural exists, then it's an inferrable cause. Comprende?
