Bush Screws the Country. hehe. ;)

A Russian ballet dancer named Vaslav Nijinsky could jump into the air and cross and uncross his legs ten times before landing. No one has been able to duplicate this feat. How many times can you?

Caution, don't try unless you're trained in ballet.. I don't want to be responsible for dislocated ankles around the country. *grin*

4, but I used to practice that all the time. My teachers used that exercise a lot in class. :)

I did train in ballet as a child, but stopped when we moved when I was nine, so I can't say that I got too far.
But I loved Nijinsky.
Here's a video of his last dance. http://www.mefeedia.com/entry/3251732/

I definitely won't be winning this leg crossing contest. I'd give it a whirl, but I'm a pretty clumsy guy and when I try to do stuff like that I inevitably break something or fall out a window.

LOL, I'm the same. I injured an ankle when I had an inflated ego about my dance ability.. which was.. mm.. incorrect. haha

Can't say I've ever tried, but if I had to guess...?
I'd say one. Maybe two if I'm hopped up on coffee.
And cocaine.
Who knows.

My mom named her first cat after Nijinsky . . . evidently it was an acrobatic little thing!
