Sit in a chair and lift your right foot a little off the ground.
Then rotate it clockwise.
Next use your right hand to draw the number 6 in the air.

Your foot will change directions and copy the counterclockwise motion of the hand and you can't prevent it. :D

There's a name for this--maybe Kokopuffs will know.

Well Nicko, I always figured you were "special" ;) .

You say your foot "stayed right where [you] left it." Do you mean it kept going clockwise? You need to keep it moving while you draw the 6.
Also, how do you write "6"? It needs to be the standard way, where you start at the top and trace the curve to the bottom and then circle back up to meet the first curve (boy that's hard to describe in words! :crazy: )

And CC, this isn't time on my hands, it's avoidence, sheer avoidance of writing projects :D

I wonder if this is a right/left handed thing.
