    Elementary.

    The secret Jooish cabal dispatched a cadre of blood drinking lizards to intercept a holographic aircraft. Along the way, the lizards' hatred of Atlantis warped space-time.

    There could be a number of explanations.

    In the first drop, there's something on the end of the stick touching the ground. It could be exerting force on it to push it down faster than gravity can pull it.

    The ball could not be what it looks like (i.e. a chromed ping pong ball rather than a steel ball bearing) which means air resistance would slow it down more than the stick.

    In the later tests with the magnet it could simply be an illusion and the magnets aren't actually at the same height. Or the could have not turned the magnet holding the bar up off completely.

    Well, I did notice that on the first two the ball did fall strait down and did not go to the side. Also since we had bar with one end on the ground and thus was not a free falling object and would have experienced torque but I do not know enough about the physics to make a determination on how that would affect the instantaneous velocity of the falling end of the bar.

    First experiment is obvious, the ball drops straight down and the bucket lines up when the wood post falls.

    2 objects with the same mass will reach the ground at the same time when dropped at the same time. It's obvious a metal pole which already has one end touching the ground will not fall at the same rate of speed since there is resistance. Plain and simple it's a flawed experiment. Drop the whole pole, not one end, and you will see them both reach the ground at the same time.
    Scientific fact: If you took all of the veins from your body and laid them end to end, you would die.

    The ball in the first two is not that heavy...it's falling into an electrical tape roll, and doesn't budge it in the first shot, and actually lands on the side of the roll on the second without even flipping...plus, the board could easily be heavier than a standard board via weights or what not. On the last drop, the pole is on end, and not the least of which, drop the items from more than 6 inches off the ground.



    This doesn't even make it parlor trick level.
