Bet you can't rip a tissue
Taken from a book aimed at kids so if any of the internet shut-ins try this their massive right arms may prove too much for the experimant and end up with salt all over the floor.

What you will need
1 x Kitchen roll tube
1 x broom handle
1 x elastic band
1 x tissue (an ordinary 2-ply tissue should suffice)
Table salt

Cover one end of the tube with the tissue and hold in place with the elastic band. Carefully pour in about 8-10cm salt. Hold the tube upright and ram the broom handle into the tube and try and tear the tissue. It won't.
The salt absorbs the impact of the broom handle and the tissue remains intact.
