    i don't know if this thread belongs here but it is kinda serious
    so yeah, would you still spin if you were blind and would never get to see your spinning again?

    I would probably stop; if I can't see my spinning, I would have no way of improving other than asking my friends, who are inexperienced at ps. Also, if I was blind, I would probably be worrying about other things kek xd

    also if you drop your pen...

    I would still spin, it would still be fun even though it would be a lot more frustrating because you can't learn new tricks and it sucks when you drop the pen lol.
    But look on the bright side, people would be super impressed :D (RIP cubing though)

    It depends what you get out of spinning really. I personally enjoy spinning for the usual skill/visual appeal, but spinning feels good tbh
    I like the feeling of a nice well used comssa barrel moving around my fingers, the sensation is somewhat calming. I can still spin with my eyes closed, I just cant improve as easily, so realistically pen spinning would become like a more complicated version of a fidget spinner l m a o
    i feel like i sound so retarded saying this but its tru so w/e lmao

    I've always wondered about how losing a finger would affect pen spinning, I do a lot of things that could end up with me missing a finger and my biggest concern about that is that I'd have to change how I spin or re-learn with my off hand

    I think that you could still spin, you would just have to do things different and make up a new style. I think that could be super cool, but I might just be overly optimistic ;)

    reminds me kinda like the question if you lost your hearing would you still listen/play music. A good a example of this is Beethoven despite being deaf decides to come up with compositions anyway and they ended up being famous masterpieces.

    I would say yes just cause i like to keep my hands busy and honestly the feeling of the pen spinning between my fingers does feel great but of course it does lose aesthetic appeal unfortunately of not being able to admire it visually.

    this calls for doing pen spinning blindfolded, like there are some videos on youtube, but i would proably never start spinning if i was blind
