@stux Adding the third toothpick vertically nulls the Newton's retroactive law of kinetics.

The vertically placed toothpick forwards a force of 0.046u on the end of the primary one (assuming the bottle is 77% filled), creating an equilibrium as the toothpick remains straight, and doesn't flexes.

As it stay straight, it can stay approximately flat, transferring the most charge on the longest end on the table.

It is a fun concept, but once you know how it works its normal as anything else..
