Ringeroundadot Without Lifting Your Pen!




Impress your friends that have no faith in you that, yes, you can indeed draw a dot and a ring around it, without connecting them and without lifting your pen (or pencil).

Step 1: Get Paper!

Find a piece of paper. If possible, find the girliest piece of paper around, like I did.

Step 2: Grasp Pen (or Pencil)

Hold pen in your hand with the cap removed.

Step 3: Make the Dot

Put pen to paper and draw a little dot.

Once you put your pen onto the paper, DO NOT lift it, this is the whole point, remember!

Step 4: Grab a Corner

With the dot drawn and the pen still in contact with the piece of paper, grab one corner of the girly piece of paper with your other hand.

Step 5: Fold Down Corner

Fold the corner of the piece of paper so that the edge lies directly next to the dot.

Step 6: Here's the Mind Boggling Trick Part

With the corner of the paper right next to the dot (you should STILL have your pen on the paper, on the dot), draw a line onto the corner away from the dot.

Step 7: Here We Go...

With the pen still on the paper, and a line drawn away from the dot, begin drawing a circle around the dot.

Step 8: Move Corner Out of the Way

As your pen leaves the corner of the paper, move it out of the way and finish drawing the circle

Step 9: Look What Cha Done!

When you've completed the circle around the dot, now you've drawn a dot with a ring around it WITHOUT lifting your pen. Hopefully this restores your friends' faith in you, or they'll just make fun of you and your choice of girly paper. Congratulations!

    I know that's the unfortunate thing! You'll have to make sure that you have lots of friends and only show it to them one at a time and somehow make sure they don't tell each other, and space it out as long as you can so that there are always more friends to impress.
