    Brandon could tell you but then he would have to kill you, burn you body, and spread the ashes over the mountains of Colorado.

    EDIt:

    Check out IhangnBankhead's gallery. Might answer your question.

    Great! That is where I will probably have my ashes spread anyway, and I would die happy knowing the secret....the "Ancient Chinese" BB secret that is!

    I'd guess he uses a sewing machine, thread, and some fabric.

    My guess is on top of having that extra fabric he pulls that one corner out more than the others when doing the whipping. Just an educated guess though.
