    haha, practice first using an unsharpened pencil. I like that they were cautious to put a safety precaution there first thing/remind the person to do that.

    Wow, talk about useless. Why the hell should you waste your time watching instructions on THIS!?

    What`s sad is, I know there`s hundreds of people out there right now, watching this video with a pencil in their hand, attempting to spin it over and over again. /facepalm

    If you`re trying to spin a pencil right now or already spin pencils, I hate you. Kindly die.

    Wow, way to make a baseless assumption. The fact that you`re some 14-year-old kid that has the username "i-am-horny" just shows how pathetic you are. I got nothing else to say to you.

    Kay: Sure, sure, but is spinning a pencil HONESTLY that exciting that it`ll cure your boredom? If it is, sure it might be for about 5 seconds... then you`re bored again. Face it, spinning a pencil is only used to "show off" in front of other people.

    I can understand the frustration of others. A while ago, a bunch of asians were spinning their pencils, and all the white people tried to learn...

    ...And for a year everyone was spinning and dropping their pencils all over the goddamned desks

    I can do the first one, but not the second or third bits. It didn`t take all that long to learn, and it`s quite relaxing once you can do it consistently.

    MasterFu, there is no cure for boredom, only temporary relief. If there was a cure this site would consist of one link.

    Yeah, master fu. Stop it. Your making an idiot out of yourself. Nothing you can say can redeem it, so you might aswell just stop posting on this thread.

    At the end of the day, you raised a point, then when argued against made an idiot out of yourself by using childish name calling, as opposed to what they where saying, which was pointing out the reason this site is here.

    This IS a waste of time, but aren`t most things on I am bored? I use them because I am actually bored.


    And the pen thing is hard :P I can get it to spin, but cant get the catch yet.

    Hey, MasterFu, you`re a dumbass. How can you call people stupid for doing this? Because you can`t do it? I think it`s useful, I do it all the time in class when I`m bored, and it`s sure as hell more exciting than sitting with my head on the table.

    I can almost do the first part, can`t wait to master them all!

    You didn`t make a baseless assumption when you said that you wanted all of us to kindly die? Obviously you assume we`re all worthless and no one would care if we all died.

    This is like "Karate Kid", you start off spinning a pencil on your thumb,and you ask yourself (And your master, the guy who made this video) "WHY AM I SPINNING A STOOPID PENCIL?!?!"
    But then that a-head from Cobra-Kai challenges you, or ninjas jump out of your desk drawer, and suddenly
    "HAI! HA! HOO!"
    You emasculate them with your pencil-spinning technique, and they run crying back to their ugly underground dojos.
    So I think this was a good video.

    It`s not baseless. You claimed that you want people to die for being so bored that they`re at a website called "I AM BORED", watching a video on how to spin a pencil.

    So I think Horny-Teen there has a valid point against you, Fu.
