No handcuffs or rope needed :)

    Under a door. As long as it’s not the Sunday NY Times.

    Place it under a closed door so that half is on one side of the door and half is on the other side of the door.

    I would slide the paper under a closed door, with me on one side and my friend on the other.

    Lay paper flat in a door way on the floor so half is on one side and half is on the other side of the door. Each person stand on one side of the door. Shut the door. Stand on the paper.

    Tear the newspapaer into 2 and both can stand apart on the newspaper.

    Well, just slip it under a closed door and have one person standing on it on either side of the door.

    Open it?

    Or maybe slide it under the under the door then close the door and the newspaper will be under the gap. So each person stand on one side and you can’t touch each other.

    place it under a door unfolded, and have each one stand on opposite sides of the door.

    Just place the unfolded newspaper under a locked door, half the way in one room, the rest in another.

    i’d either cut it in half, or tie it to all of our shoes, OR in a zero gravity field place it vertically, with each person laying horizontally in the air, on opposite sides of the paper.

    Place the newspaper underneath a door, then both you and your friend stand on either side of the door on the newspaper.

    Well, one way is in anti-gravity standing on the opposite sides.

    Probably the way that was visioned however, is with the newspaper under a door and one person standing on each side.

    by tearing the newspaper into a round long strip and standing on each end..

    that’ll make them a good 4 meters apart.
