Possible or Impossible?

    Hi, This Brain teaser is something I remembered from when I was a child
    Basically you had to figure out how to draw this figure without overlapping or breaking the line until you were done.
    I can't for the life of me remember how to do it.


    If anyone could tell whether or not it is possible I would greatly appreciate it

    A point where an odd number of lines intersect must either be a start point or an end point of your drawing.

    In short, it's not possible.

    Is this right?

    EDIT:That's wrong isn't it. I've missed a bit out.
