Recently released time-lapse footage from the Manchester Museum in England is freaking out some folks, because it appears that a 4,000-year-old Egyptian statue is spinning inside its glass case on its own.

A physicist said it's probably the result of differential friction.  The statue is turning little by little because of tiny vibrations from people walking around, or from street traffic. But one of the museum's experts isn't buying it, and seems to think there might be a more supernatural explanation.


In Ancient Egypt, they believed that if [a] mummy is destroyed, then the statuette can act as an alternative vessel for the spirit.

Although, when you watch the video, it seems to only move when there's traffic outside or people walking around.  What do you think?
