    The full video of this where he explains about the world championship of drawing perfect circles is worth a watch.

    Re-post
    It`s a math teacher skill. I guess technically not a re-post since it`s a GIF.

    Yeah, I remember watching the original video, uatme. Still, it`s very cool to watch.

    Seen it before but no matter how many times I watch I can`t figure out how it is possible.

    My guess is that he has an eraser in his hand and this is run backwards.

    @uatme: NOT a repost! Different mediums entirely.

    No catgirls for you!

    How he does it? I don`t have a clue. I had a co-worker who`d draw perfect shapes on a paper. It drove her NUTZ if even one was "off"...

    Ooooh.

    I`ve seen the original video, but if I hadn`t, I`d go with you on that theory - nice.

    "My guess is that he has an eraser in his hand and this is run backwards."

    Then you`ve never erased chalk off a chalk board. It doesn`t come off that clean.

    "Seen it before but no matter how many times I watch I can`t figure out how it is possible."

    With your shoulder acting as a fixed point and your arm fully extended, rotate it fully to get pretty close pretty easily. He bends his arm which makes it difficult.

    I can draw "perfect" circles by creating a fixed point with my finger and then holding a pencil and spinning the paper.

    I have seen it live. It is a world wide competition. HBO did a math special on him and others 20 years ago. Video is cir. 1993.

    Mr. Nordman was famous for this in my high school. At least once he was announced at a pep rally; the curtains parted, and he walked onstage in a white lab coat. He stopped in front of a mobile chalkboard and >shew-whip< described a perfect circle in chalk. The crowd went nuts, as if he had just copied the Mona Lisa in two seconds, and demanded two encores before he was allowed to return to the physics lab.
