YOU ARE NOT IN CONTROL
Did your foot change direction? Yes it did, you liar.
- Make clockwise circles on the floor with your right foot;
- Now, without looking at your foot, use the index finger on your right hand to draw the number "6" in the air.
A big thanks to TTT for pointing out that I am unable to control my own goddamned body

On the same vain try hold your arms up shoulder height with the fists facing each other, then spin one arm clockwise and the other counter clockwise. It's difficult not to change the direction of your arms involuntarily but it can be done with practice. Left side, right side brain thing.
uh ... am I missing something? I didn't have a seconds worth of trouble doing this.
I must be wired wrong...my foot didn't change direction. I tried it like five times, and now I have rugburn on my toe. Heh.
Addendum to previous message: if you didn't figure out my first message, don't spin your arms in same direction, spin opposite
I've been sitting here circling my toe and attempting drawn 6s in the air for a good two minutes.
I must be as stupid as I look.
Damned you. Now I'm gonna be doing this all night.
when I first started reading this I thought that the title meant that he was going to give me instructions, and then laugh at me for following them.
If you're left-handed (or just feel contrary) use your left hand&foot. If you use opposite hand & foot, there's no challenge!
I just did this and didn't have any problem...
then I realized that I'm one of those people who draws certain things backwards... instead of starting at the top of the 6, I start with the loop... moving clockwise up to the top...
no problem... been like that since I was a wee lad...
...so I tried it the other way and sho nuff.
Odd, my girlfriend had me do this just last night. Unfortunately, my inepetness didn't lead to her seducing me like a ravished vixen.
i don't know if i'm drunk or retarded, but my foot changed directions. for all of you who aren't so lucky.. i feel sorry for you. i finally have another way to entertain myself when i'm all alone.
Wow.... that's crazy! Lookit that foot going counterclockwise! Oh, I can stop now? Oh... well... ok...
BTW: That first comment, I'm not sure what's so hard about it. I'm spinning my arms opposite directions with no problem.
Your foot doesn't change direction if you draw the 6 clockwise (ie, start in the middle and then swirl around to the top). But mine sure as hell did the other way.
Great site, btw. I've become an addict.
more at-work entertainment, yay! my foot did change direction. but i'll er, save the spinning arms for when i get home. flailing arms viewed over the top of a cubicle just might draw some attention.
YOU CRRRRAAAAAAZY! I can do it! But then again, I am a mofo genius. Damn the man who says otherwise.
which way is clockwise? is that righty-tighty or lefty-loosey?
In a similar vein, try this. Tilt your head toward your right shoulder, and extend your left arm straight in the air. Stick your right leg out at about 45 degrees and slowly spin while humming "Shadows of the Night" by Pat Benatar. Also, do it at work. Then promptly quit.
You will notice that people who play the drums have no problem with this one. They can set each of their limbs on autopilot. I think Beth needs to take up the drums.
My entire office is now acting like a troupe of gyroscopic mimes.
It's easier to do if you're using Roman numerals.
My right foot was circling and I drew a six in the air three times... and sure enough, I summoned Beelzebub. That's when things got really messy.
My foot startded moving in a diagonal line when I made the 6... Anyone care to take a Freudian stab at it?
I can keep my foot going just fine and I can do the arm spinny thing too, have enjoyed that one since I was a kid. So I guess I have that limb autopilot business, but, Chris, I can't play the drums to save my soul, what gives?
thank you for a good laugh at myself!!! you can laugh at me too if ya want
when i did it my foot made a figure 8 whats up with that
Ha! My girlfriend said to tell you -when I made her try it after she laughed at me - "harumph. fucker."
im ambidextrous, i tried it both ways a bunch of times and it didnt work. can i sue you for being exclusionary of minorities, or something like that?
Oh my lord. There's an office full of people trying to do this now. Thank god for the internet
son of a bitch..I thought I had more coordination than that!
Out of everyone I work with and everyone my mom works with, I'm the only one who can do this with no problem. Everyone else's foot either stops or changes direction.
