Very informative link, Steve! (Primate Programming)
I fear that this will result in the mass unemployment of current programmers.

I wonder if there is a Primate Retouchers organization?

This only takes a few seconds to attempt.
Sounds easy as you read it but just give it a try.
Good Luck.


While sitting at your desk make clockwise circles with your right foot on the floor. While doing this, draw the number "6" in the air with your right hand.
Your foot will change direction!!

CJ, Thanks for that! After freaking out my husband I have forwarded on to friends and relations. A very strange feeling to have your foot taking on a mind of its own...

It was sent to me in an e-mail -- don't know who gets the credit for its origination. I didn't think it would work -- until I tried it.

CJ--I did the foot thing with my students the first day of school. Thirty kids making sitting sideways in their desks making circles with their feet and all reversing at the same time. It was a big hit. I did it at the end of class and they raced to their next class to pull it on the next teacher (biology). Thanks for sharing such a fun thing--my students and I both enjoyed it.

Danny--I don't know how to break this to you, but...I do believe they are scratching a different type of itch.
