Competitive pen spinning

Back in high school, my classmates and I noticed that our biology teacher was doing this neat pen-spinning hand trick while she was lecturing. Afterwards, we bugged her to teach us and for the next couple of weeks, we drove everyone nuts as we tried to learn this trick. We finally succeeded and we thought we were awesome. Now that I’ve seen this video of Hong Kong kids in an extremely competitive pen spinning competition, I feel decidedly unawesome because these kids are incredible. What they are able to do with a pen will make your head spin.

This was my favorite part of the video, when the interviewer asked, “Can you write with this pen?”

“Uh, no.”
