    Place your hands parallel to each other, touching. Put your thumbs up and place a pencil or pen between them. Your task is to invert the ends of the pencil (ie. so that the left before is now on the right, the right before is now on the left.) However the pencil CANNOT leave the grasps between your thumbs.

    This is damn annoying!

    i think you have to put your hands together, with the thumbs pointing up. Then, hold a pen with your thumbs, and try to turn it around, so it is pointing the opposite way.

    thats what I gather from the description in the first post.

    i meant improvise for something to use instead of a pencil.

    come to think of it, improvise something to do with said pencil-replacement!
