Tearing a phone book in half sounds pretty difficult but can be done with the right technique.

There's an episode of the old 50s Superman TV show where someone challenges Superman's powers, so he tears a phone book in half. Someone says, that's just a trick -- anyone can learn to do that! So Superman says, how about this? And he turns the two torn halves 90 degrees on top of each other and tears through them again.

More Pixelstick moving background weirdness. This is two people walking L to R in same direction as the Pixelstick.You can see the ponytail. Th "tail" to the right is a hand held backwards, moving just slower than the pixelstick, so only slowly coming into view (shadow).

Testing G+ pinning.  Seems to only work on public posts and can be edited individually. Lots of pinned posts would be fine but would clog up page 1 of your G+.

Took this photo tonight. Please explain. 
If you don't know then be bizarre...

This is the fortyfifth in a series of unusual photos of mine that are not immediately obvious.
As usual, have a guess and make it fun. I'll publish the answer in a day with a copy to responders. It's quite bizarre.

This is a detail from my best known photo which has been filmed by local and international TV. Tesla coil sparks strike the tarmac and dissipate.

 Bizarre.  Walk one way with the Pixelstick moving background and you are thin and the other ..ehmmm.. wide.
There are a lot of other effects such as appearing twice like batting and bowling that adds a whole new dimension of time/position/direction. Lots of other examples.

Th answer to my previous photo with laser beams apparently emanating from my fingers. The beams of course are striking my fingertips from an external source and become visible when the fog is added from the blue machine on the left.
The lasers are blue multispectral Argon about 14mW, red HeNe 10mW and green diode 9mA visible. It was a bit tricky to run all this keeping my left hand still while operating the fog machine and camera.

Peter Terren originally shared to Peter Terren's Mystery:
 
There are three Americium sources from household smoke detectors made visible by fluorescence from Alpha radiation. All about 1.0 microCurie and about 1/2 inch (12mm) in diameter. The top one has no phosphor, the left lower one has Strontium Aluminate:Europium 2% (see below) glowing red and the right lower one has activated Zinc Sulphide glowing green. The Zinc Sulphide has a little glow not restricted to the emitter, due to phosphorescence from light exposure some hours before. 
The photographic exposure is about 7 minutes so this is VERY faint stuff.
This is similar to a spinthariscope - more about this later.

I can finally switch on my laser fibreoptic implants that connect my fingertips to the 3 laser units in their silicone casing. Charging is by induction from a charging strap worn at night. Geek Cred +++.
Cool as that might be, its not actually true. But what is really going on with these two photos taken tonight?
Be creative.
