    Las Vegas, NV: In this challenge, we mess with the internal map of the body that viewers’ brains rely on. We instruct our audience to cross one hand over the other, at the wrists, and clasp their hands. They’re then instructed to roll their hands back towards their chest, and up to their chin. The final instruction is to lift particular fingers one at a time – a nearly impossible task! This image is from Brain Games.
