John Cassel performed 70 over-the-thumb pen spins in one minute.

- must use an ordinary pen or marker
- pen must freely rotate 360 degrees over the thumb of the hand in which it is being held and return to its starting position
- must provide video evidence
- spins must fall completely within the time frame; incomplete spins will be deducted from the final total

    Congratulations on your stunning achievement!

    Per the comments below, one hand is implied because it refers to a single pen, and a single thumb. A separate record for over-the-thumbs pen spins using two pens can be made.

    Ross -- since you're attempting a new record, you have the freedom to define the criteria/rules. In the spirit of consistency, I'd try to build your criteria around existing pen spinning feats. Two different categories are more than welcome, and a unicycle in the midst of it all? Sounds awesome!

    I didn't realize my record had been broken--don't think I received a notice. Congrats to the new winner. Looks like I'm going to have to set a new one while riding a unicycle. An earlier question was about whether this needed to be one-handed. That was my intent (I thought about trying to set a different one with two hands). Do I need to do anything as the original record setter to add that criteria?

    Remi John That's your cue to set them! I'd love to see some more pen-spinning records!

    Yeah I was wondering if a thumbaround harmonic would count as 2. The only stipulation is that it "freely rotates 360 degrees" and "return[s] to its starting position." Technically a harmonic meets both of these conditions i'm thinking. I wish there were more records dealing with pen spinning.

    Maybe we split this category into one-handed and two-handed. I do think the original record was done with one hand, maybe we should add it to the criteria.

    Ross could re-upload the video and update the criteria to say you can only use one hand. I'd be happy to compete for it.

    the criteria should have said only can use one hand

    I figure it won't be long before this record gets smashed by a grad student somewhere in another time zone. Then I'll just have to do it on a unicycle...
