Posted:Should be easy for all you co-ordinated ppl out there

While sitting at your desk, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles. Now, while doing this, draw the number "6" in the air with your right hand.

Your foot will change direction.

(sorry if you've seen it b4, its kinda pinched from annother forum but its fun so there!)

Posted:aaaarrrgggghhhh! I had forgotten about this one...But I beat it!

I had to think very strongly about the circling foot....then draw just the righthand half of the bottom circle on the six quote: ) then stopped, foot still circling and drew the other half quote: ( And ALMOST lost it, but just managed to keep the foot circling clockwise.

Then finally, added the sloping top bit, kinda like below but sloping more... quote: ( I did it, and kept my foot circling clockwise the whole time...but damn, it wasn't easy...

Posted:if you draw your six from the inside out, it works much better.

oh, and note: left handed people seem to be able to do the right side quite easily. They dont look so clever when you tell them to do it left hand/footed.

Posted:hehe. that is so wierd.

reminds me of the thing where you stand in a doorway with your arms at your sides then push against the door frame as hard as you can with the backs of your hands for about a minute. then when you step out of the doorway your arms will start floating.

its like being on drugs without the expense

Posted:Oh, see, if I do it standing up, my foot changes directions, but if I'm sitting down it doesn't... Much mind-boggling-ness!

"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."

Posted:I naturally draw my 6's from inside out so I did it easilly, then realised I draw my sixes wrong.

So I tryed the other way, and with about 2 min practice I can sort of do it. The foot circle turns more into a clockwise drawn triangle though, andtrying to do more than one is almost impossible.
