Fun With The Number 6.

From planet-science.com:

1. Get your friends to sit down in their respective chairs.

2. If they are righthanded, get them to cross their right leg over their left, and circle their right foot clockwise (very important it's clockwise). If they're lefthanded, cross the left leg, and circle the left foot (clockwise).

3. Now challenge them to write the number '6' neatly on their piece of paper AT THE SAME TIME AS circling their foot clockwise (you might want to appoint some under-table observers to check on the foot-circling motion). They will probably find this quite difficult ...

4. Now you can show them to do it properly - it's easy when you know how. The secret is that you have to write your '6' in a different way to how you were taught at school. What you need to do is draw it 'clockwise', ie. beginning in at the middle of the number and curling outwards so that you end on the highest-up part of the 6 ... When you do it this way, everything flows like a dream.

By the way -- doing this trick three times in a row, on the same piece of paper, will send you straight to hell.

Very fun...even after a glass (or two) of wine.

Thanks for the helpful how-to!
