How smart is your Right Foot?

Just try this -

it's from an orthopedic surgeon and it will boggle your mind. You will
keep trying over and over again to see if you can outsmart your foot,
but you can't. It's preprogrammed in your brain!


1. WITHOUT anyone watching you (they will think
you are GOOFY) and while sitting where you are in front of your
computer, 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! I told
you so!! And there's nothing you can do about it! You and I both know
how stupid it is, but before the day is done you are going to try it
again, if you've not already done so.

And if you manage to keep the foot going clockwise, the 6 will probably be reversed!

I can do it with my right foot, every time (and have witnesses that can now confirm I am very strange).
But, as I am left handed, I tried it with my left foot and left hand and every time my foot reverses.
Does this mean I should go and buy a T-Rex and enter every 3D comp in the universe?

I was able to do it on the third try, and I am right handed. But they must be in sync. With enough practice, I would be able to have them completely independent of each other.

A good drummer would be able to do it also.
You can train your brain to do many amazing things. It's all with practice.
Like singing and playing piano at the same time. Which I practice, and do. My left and rights hands are doing two different things, while my voice is doing another. The more complicated the syncopations, and rhythms are, the more you need to practice it.

Kind of like using rudder, and airelons at the same time.
3D flying also, the same principal.

Someday I'll figure out how to use opposite rudder and ailerons to get a controlled sideslip or crab.

I tried it once. Went just as you said. I tried harder the 2nd time. I did fine for about 2 seconds then everything reverted. Damn foot made me mad, so I shot it. Now I don't have the problem anymore.

Took me ten times (at least). Definitely dates back to when humans were "hardwired" for motion on two feet! It must be one of those vestigal nervous system anomalies (i.e. a holdover from earlier human development). Or I am just a klutz!

Sounds like some monkey or ape like behavior you've got going on there.

I quit reading the other forums on wattflyer 'cuz I learn more useful stuff on here! I added clipless pedals to my bicycle today which lock your feet via special shoes to the pedals. To unclip, you twist your foot. I was having trouble unclipping my foot from the right pedal of my bike, so I traced a 6 in the air and bammm! I was out. Cool. I hope I can remember which number to trace when I need to get out of them in a hurry or I'll fall over like Henry Gibson with his tricycle on Laugh In.

42 to get in
6 to get out.

Henry Gibson was a hoot on Laugh in. Gee's I must be old to remember that. Goldie Hawn became a star by playing a dumb bimbo.
Ruth Buzzi just a great comedian.

And I'd like to nominate Aviatordave for the
Fickled Finger of Fate award for starting this thread.

I tried to make clockwise circles with my foot, but I only got about 90 degrees before it started hurting. If I go any further, I think my leg will break. You guys must be pretty talented!

My grandkids already think I'm a nerd, but when they saw me doing this, I'm pretty sure they know I am now for sure. BTW! I had my foot, my finger going and then I noticed I had my tongue and parts of my face going too. I'm sure it was a pretty gruesome sight.

If I focus on the foot while drawing the 6 I can keep it going in the same direction, If I dont focus on the foot, it will reverse, funny stuff, Take care, Chellie

Default Warning!

I was practicing keeping my right foot going around in the same direction while I drew the 6. It got it going pretty good with one 6, then with two 6's in a row. I tried three 6's in a row and my head suddenly spun completely around. Don't even try it!
