best way to get skin off of raw peanuts?

Is there a faster way to do this than rubbing the individual nuts betw my fingers (one pound's worth!)? I'd also like to do it without separating the peanut halves.

With some nuts (almonds, hazelnuts) people parboil briefly or roast them before removing the skins. Parboiling will allow you to "slip" the almonds out of their casings; roasting allows most of the hazelnut skin to be quickly rubbed off in a towel. I have no specific knowledge about peanuts, but you could experiment on a handful; it only costs peanuts.
