Penspinning

Messagepar ɹǝןnƎ » 15 juil. 2015, 13:06

Hey everyone ;)
To start with, just a simple question : do you know this ?
Another one now : have you ever done this before whilst getting bored in maths class ? (I just wanna know whether I'll be alone* or not :roll:)

I have been practicing this leisure since my second year in Junior High School. But I’ve never managed to spin my pen more than two rounds … when I was lucky! :mrgreen:

Oh you know I got the same issues when I started :mrgreen:
This guy helped me a lot then, so I can now do things like that :)

I ve tried to master the very art of pen spinning since my childhood, but without significant success...
For the two previous year, there was a great friend of mine in my class. He was quite good at it (well, in fact, he only knew two different tricks... But that s better than nothing !) so I tried to copy him. But soon, the delicious tiny sound of my pen falling on my desk started to annoy my teachers, so I had to reduce my training.

In a nutshell : I suck at pen spinning. :mrgreen:

Actually, they aren't that bad, it's just that they could do more to diserve their success... :roll:

If I can give you just an advice for the two coming years: avoid to use the expression “in a nutshell”, and a few others others such as “burning issue”. It’s… depreciated, and teachers clearly don’t like it.

"To put it briefly" does sound more elegant. :)

But "in a nutshell" sounds so funny !

Alright, I'll teach you some more tricks then (if you want of course :mrgreen:) ! And you know, the only two teachers that were really annoyed by the noises of my pen falling were the History teachers (may be I should precise I used a pen that was nearly 1m long...) so I hadn't any problems :P (may be the fact that I had good marks without listening and copying the lessons just shut their mouse :twisted:)

Appearing in movies/series/webseries/thousands of YT videos isn't enough as a proof of beautifulness ? (wow, we're still on the first page and I'm already speaking of something like that ?!)

Very few are the teachers who use mice to scold their pupils. :o

To my mind, being "beautiful" is not enough for a music to be great. :roll:

I would love to !
Well, the fact is, as I am always seated at the front (view problems, blah blah blah...) I am not very discreet when I try to do something else in class ! I think the best episodes were when my pen fell right on my teacher's desk :roll:

I used a pen that was nearly 1m long

What the dickens ??? :shock:

But I believe we won't do it in class since... I might finally need to follow the curses :mrgreen:

Yes, I just wanted to try FTW :)
<troll> Then the History teacher got angry (again), and she tried to disassemble it... She used all her strenght but wasn't able to seperate the several pens :D
So she throwed it back onto my table and asked me to store it in my pen case... I had no problems when I had to take the pens apart (everyone was laughing in the class) :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: </troll>
