This is almost kinda creepy

Making Light blog:

While sitting in your chair, lift your right foot slightly off the ground and move it in clockwise circles. Now draw the numeral 6 in the air with your right hand. Your foot will involuntarily reverse direction.

Is this ALL you have to do all have too much time on your hands.

Beth: Is that a complaint? My life is all about entertaining you.

Oh, real tough job. Simple things do amuse simple minds, ya know.

I have spent the past ten minutes trying to keep my foot turning clockwise....Damn I can't do it, it keeps reversing no mater how hard I concentrate to keep it clockwise....

This drove me crazy, I always thought I had complete control over what my feet would do, except when walking on ICE. They seemed to have a mind of there own while doing this.

Hey Sherm...see if I stick up for you again. JK

Wow! This is trippy, but I figured out the solution... you draw a 9 with your hand rather than a 6 and then your foot won't go the wrong way!!! :-)

George: Why would you ever "walk on ice"?? I just put it in my gin & tonic and I'm all set.

So I sent the foot/hand thing out to my undergrads, and here's a response I got:

For those of you who can't speak college -- that means it was fun.
