So is anyone here a hardcore pen spinner?

I only started like about a month ago, and now I can do thumbaround, medium speed fingerpass, sonice from pinky to ring finger, and infinity. For those of you who have no idea what I just said visit http://pentrix.com.

Yes I know, I need to get a life, but I spend lots of time seated at a desk each day, listening to teachers, and I gotta do something to keep myself occupied right?

I've tried that stuff before, but the last time I tried the pen flew out of my hand and hit my eyebrow.. yeah, I could have lost an eye. I'm still traumatized and haven't done it since.

Sure. I have seen some.

We might need an Asian awareness thread here just in case.

I learned it from a Vietnamese kid like 14 years ago in 10th grade. I am Puerto Rican.

i've been a thumb-spinner for as long as i can remember, and i don't even know how i learned (and no i'm not asian). i've always just thought it was a nervous tic. i remember the debate team kids used to do it, maybe i picked it up from them?

I can do the thumbaround one, other than that, I can only do the other stuff in my dreams...
