This whole thing started with an email from my Mom. It got so good I just had to share.

email one
This is too funny.

O.K. So we used to try to pat our heads and rub our tummies (singularly, we only have a head / tummy apiece) This is worse.

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

2. Now, while doing this, draw the number "6" in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction.

Go on, try it.


email two (a response to my sending email one to friends)


Okay, that;s bizarre on two levels - 1 - why do we do that? and 2 - who and how, in the name of god, ever realized this?

email three (my reply)

My supposition is that some Ph.D. nerd in behavioral science needed to find a thesis project and picked this one. Okay now that you are done laughing you're going to throw something at me the name of curiousity I decided to see if it worked if you made the circle with your right foot and the 6 with your left hand. Guess what???

And then...

Left foot left hand - same as right foot right hand

left foot right hand - same as right foot left hand.

Itellesting, velly intellesting.
