This is a good one-so strange that our brains just won't let it happen!

My daughter came home from school with these instructions the other day. I wish there were some way all three of us--my kid, my husband and me--could have been filmed as we all sat on the couch, franticaly TRYING to do it.

I am pretty sure I look like an idiot right now!

Sam_I_am said...

That's horribly mean, Diane :-P

I am with the Bloggus Nuttus! Diane, you are a magical elf, ensuring that we look like idiots, while you are gliding through your work like a graceful swan! Sorceress, you! x

Damn that would have been fun, but now I am on a crowded train and there is no way...

Protege said...

I will try that later; it might look a bit weird if I do this in the lab.:P

SSP said...

as i was reading the instructions, my hand was still on the mouse and as I was rotating my foot, my hand started moving the mouse in the same direction, and there was NO way I could stop!!! arghhh

Sorry folks. Didn't work for me!

Very odd! What about a good drummer? Drummers are used to have all four going simultaneously.

Cat said...

maybe the narcotics are disrupting my typical brain activity because I had no trouble doing that just now.
Probably so, since then I finished drawing my phone number in the air and it took a few minutes to realize I wasn't actually on the phone with myself.

Stu Pidasso said...

tried it, can't do it without my foot being commandeered by my finger. Usually the foot ends up in the mouth.

Lee said...

Arrrrrgh!

LMN said...

Okay, I had to try this like 8 times to see if I could do it without switching directions!!! Funny little break to my day - thanks!

boneman said...

sorry.
A bit ambidextrous, I
so even in my mind's eye
my foot did the clock fine,
and I drew an upside down nine.
Do I win a piece of apple pie?

joshlos said...

AAaaarrrrggghgghghggh....!!! You got me! I'm usually good at things like this! I misread it first and missed the thing about the right hand, so I did the circle w/ my right foot and did a 6 fine w/ my left hand. Then I realized it shoulda been my right hand. I tried doing a 6 first by itself, and then added in the foot. It was fine when I started both together, but when I tried to do the 6 when my foot was already in motion, my foot went back the other way.
