    Yeah, I don't feel great about this submission. I'd like to see Tom do it again, and add a rule that the stack must be clearly balanced on the elbow before the coins are snatched.

    technically he did snatch it off of his elbow, but the pennies definitely were not "balanced", at all.

  • The time between the left-handed penny release to the right-handed penny capture is suspiciously fast. What do others think?

  • I am pretty sure the image in the bottom left is Tony Danza not John Stamos. I vote we reduce the count to 52.

  • o-mazing

  • Go Tristan! :D
