Brings back memories.

At the height of the craze I entered a competition to do it, run by the
local newspaper, and came third, with a personal best of 32 seconds.
(My previous best was 54 seconds).

First place was 24 seconds if I recall, but he cheated IMHO, as he'd
sprayed the insides with a lubricant, and he only had to stroke it and
it span like crazy.

For the third place I won £10 (which was a fair amount in those days)
and my picture in the paper.

Course, I can't remember how to do right it to the end now; last time I
tried all I managed was 66%. The last 33% was always the hardest
