    How Smart Is Your Right Foot?
    How Smart Is Your Right Foot?

    This is funny!!!

    1. While sitting at your desk, lift your right foot off the
    floor and make clockwise circles with it.

    2. Now, while doing this, draw the number "6" in the air (in the normal counterclockwise manner) with your right hand. Your foot will change direction!!!

    If I try making the 6 using a clockwise motion, my foot also follows the pattern of a 6.

    I think this is some sort of frontier science that also explains why a dog moves its leg when you scratch its belly! Probably make for a good government grant proposal.

    Ha ha! Thats very weird! It's similar to when you stand sideways against a wall and push against it while trying to stick out your leg. Or is it arm?? I only know I read it on a Kelloggs cereal box when i was 10 and the fun lasted several hours!

    Anyway, Ill shut up now....Taxi!!

    Cheesehead,

    I'm going to have to let all of my mouse's loose on you!

    I don't even have to try to draw the number "6" in the air with my right hand, because as soon as I try to lift my right hand, my right foot stop and try to follow my thoughts.

    What kind of witchcraft is this?

    Never mind, "How Smart Is Your Right Foot?"

    Now It's, How Smart is your entire Body?

    Cheesehead,

    Just try to do the clockwise circles with your head, and try do the counterclockwise same thing with with your right or left hand.

    It will never happen!

    We're all wired not to do those things.

    Why? , but......

    Actually, if you attempt it for several weeks running, you can indeed break that connection. I did it...

    The problem with that is, if you force your eyes to stay open while sneezing (and succeed), air will be forced out of your eyes' drainage ducts due to the pressure of the sneeze. I found that to be very uncomfortable, and ended up closing my eyes *on purpose* while sneezing, until the connection re-established itself. It took quite a while to revert, too--as if the system had actually rewired itself.

    I'm sure the hand-foot connection can be broken with repeated attempts as well--if you're really adamant about doing something, the body usually eventually concedes to the demand. But, there may be some surprise negative to getting the hand/foot connection seperated, too. No idea what, but sometimes when something's hard-wired like that, turns out there was a good reason after all...

    *Generally will attempt supposedly "impossible" things until they are cracked, sometimes with unexpected results*

    That one made me laugh. If I do it REALLY slow, I can conquer it, but usually it gets the best of me. The most fun that I had was sending to my co-workers and waiting and watching as the each read the e-mail and tried to do it thinking no one was watching. Too hilarious.

    One co-worker said that her husband was able to do it, but since I didn't see it, I don't believe it. I guess I live too close to Missouri, I say "show me"!

    Thanks for the fun.

    I can do that. I can rotate my head clockwise and move my finger counterclockwise. However, if I draw out the six my head then switches direction. The extra motion of the six messes me up.

    Just because sooo many people said it was impossible, and I didn't see any reason *not* to disprove it. That, and not having anything better to do at the time (or as they say, "too much time on my hands" LOL)!
