Cat's Cradle 101. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CAZhx5PKgl4
That is what the youtube link said.
And sure enough, there was a video of two people showing how to do some of the string games that Arta made us learn as kids.
It is so funny teaching the Inuit law and film class, and reading about string games, and figuring out that i had some background!
So try out the link, and see if any of you have fingers that can master (or just remember?) playing those string games!
