A short video clip showing how a stream of water can be deflected by static electricity. All you need is a glass rod and a piece of silk -- rubbing the rod with silk strips electrons from the rod, leaving it positively charged. The electrically polar water molecules are drawn to these positive charges, altering the trajectory of the falling stream.
