I have tried it and I can do so if I really concentrate on it, but a lot of the time, I just seem to loose focus on what I am trying to do, so I never can do it much.

Yes - concentrate on patting your head and your hand will just more round your tummy!

actually yes I can. My friend and I tried this a while back...for some reason we were trying to do things people say can't be done like licking your elbow....my friend can do that.

yes. It's really easy. It's just a matter of concentration. People can multitask. The thing about not being able to do it is something to do with your arms wanting to do the same thing as each other but, if you think about all the other things you do which require each arm/hand working independently, even simple things such as eating with a knife and fork, you'll see why there is no reason not to be able to rub your stomach and pat your head at the same time.
