Foot trick

An amusing trick for bored readers: rotate your right foot in a clockwise direction, and then, while rotating, draw the number six in the air with your right hand. You'll find that your foot magically changes direction!

It works. It even works with your eyes closed. Drawing any other number than 6 just seems to mess up the rotation, but not send it in the opposite direction.

You've just got to wonder who the sonofagun was who first discovered this and if he was the same guy who ate the first raw oyster.

Must work for 'normal' types, mine just slowed down.
