I practiced the "charge", as they call it in Wikipedia, for three days and I mastered it today. I saw that most of my classmates could do it, so I set myself about learning it and I did it in three days. However I know the Charge is easiest in all four different ways of pen-spinning, so I'm trying to learn the Thumb Twirl from my dad now..

Anyone else into the art of pen-spinning?

Yea, it's funny.

I can do the Charge, Sonic, FingerPass and maybe the ThumbAround with a pen if I practiced on that one. Pass and Wiper prolly too.

I can do it with bigger stuff too. Did a ThumbAround with a broom, since it requires less finesse and Fingerpass and Sonic too.

Nope. http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y109/Ultradyne/Pikachu%20Emotes/blush.gif

But honestly, I think I'll get through life just fine without ever learning it.

Woah... o_0
3 Days ago, we were spinning pens, and bugging all the teachers, and
1 went flying in the air, and got stuck to the teachers hair xD
Hmm... all of us can spin pens, the one where it says Sonic, I can do that,
but I sometimes.... just see above... xD

I can't spin it. I can flick it. I once flicked it out the door, and (we were on a upper level of the school) it went downstairs. :)

It may be useless, but it is entertaining ^^

I can do the Charge with chopsticks, forks, drumsticks and sometimes eve my glasses.

So many kids in my school can do it. I can't. I can just spin it between my middle finger and my index finger really fast. It kinda looks like it's spinning (If I do it well).

I used to be able to do the 'ThumbAround', I dunno if I still can... haven't done it in ages. xD

I should try some of those other ones, I never even knew about those. xP

That's the Charge, which still looks cool if you do it well. That's also the only one I can do :P
