Pen spinning Answered

When i was in 5th grade i thought of doing tricks with your pen or pencil. I am not claiming that i made pen spinning but I did think of the idea before they came out with the pens for pen spiniing.


I think it may have evolved thousands of years ago with Asian kids playing with their chopsticks.

.  I'm glad you're not claiming to have invented it, because I invented pen spinning back in 1963. <snicker>
.  And I don't like caitlinsdad's racist comments about Asian kids. That's bound to be a violation of the "be Nice" Policy. Stoopid Fn Yankee.

But I thought you couldn't remember the 60's.

Based on intensive field research, the pen spinning gene is lost with each progressive generation as it is displaced from its roots.  In my observation, the only ones who have these skills are those from recently immigrated parents.  Now, if you want to discuss beer-bottle opening skills without the use of a can-opener, that would not be nice.
