    It's pretty simple actually. You just need to spin it long enough until you get the hang of it.

    but i dont get how they make sense. Whichever way i spin it my index finger gets completely in the way?

    Well clearly you need to break the bones in your index finger or snap it off completely.

    I too am useless at this.

    I can actually...been doing it since HS (mid-90's). We had a Korean algebra teacher that was the MASTER at it. He told us if we could demonstrate it by the end of the second semester, we got extra-credit. lol... It just takes lots and lots of practice. BUT beware...once you figure it out, its highly addicting. I cannot hold a pen/pencil in my hands w/o doing it. Drives others crazy. Good luck!

    Well you'll have to make your fingers more agile. Learn how to control your fingers during the spin.
