What is the stupidest thing you've ever attempted while diaboling?

Mine would be probably trying to make a basket with the diabolo at a gym, and getting it tangled in the net.  They had to bring in a special crane type thing to get it down for me.

A close second would be doing a genocide, and when the stick swung around got caught in a cieling fan.

Probably when i tried a genocide inside Mr Halls class and almost made the shield to the lights on his roof come down.  :shock:  I fixed it though. Hehe, sorry Hall sensei.  :oops:

*learns lesson to never attempt genocides or any infinite suicide stuff indorros*

This is a good topic, once I got angry and threw my diabolo and sticks as far as I could and they ended up in the far end of the neighbours yard so I had to jump the fence and get them, it was fun though because I felt like a bit of a commando  8)

Once I got mad because I had a bad day and I didn't even catch a single throw! I was throwing for about two hours and just didn't catch a single throw.. I got mad and kicked the diabolo as hard as possible!!! :twisted:   and it flew over our house in the middle of huge rosebush.... It was painful.
I started diaboloing this summer ;)

yesterday I wanted to do a minigenocide behind my back, and I was lucky, because the stick would almost certainly have hit me in the face... but it didn't. That is a trick I won't try again I think, or is it done before?

Doing diabolo close to water. I was doing some 2d stuff on a small dock, when the other diab flew to water, I rushed after it and managed to catch it. Then I looked back at the dock, and wait a minute, where is my other circus?  So it had obviously sank. The water was not deep at all, but I wasn't that warm either. I had to look for it for two days before I found it, or my cousin did, man was I reliefed.

Another stupid thing would be The pantless man doing diabolo..

now I remember my first 'back to front between the legs-throw' that Jonas Zeller does in his show in Bilbao. I saw that video last summer and I rushed outside to try it. I couldn't speak with my normal voice for the next 15 minutes...

is the guillotine the same as 'the garotte' ? Because I tried that one today the other way around, but I failed miserably and got a diabolo about a cm from my head...
I won't try that again soon.

um... no you didn't.

At home, it was late at night, I was doing diabolo in my boxers and a shirt.  I thought to myself, "hey i haven't done between the leg blind whips in a while..."  Fill in the rest of the story yourself... >.>

And that string really hurts...

Trying to learn arm orbits with a vest on. The amount of burns I had up and down my right arm was ridiculous after that. They looked like nothing at the time. Just hurt a little bit. The scars are just starting to fade a month on lol  :oops:
Have been asked if I self harm several times since  :oops:
Arm orbits used to be a problem... now they're a way of life!!

apart from many unmentionable diabolo mishaps involving late night diaboloing in boxers (you think i would have lernt my lession!) one i was doing a 2 high and i tried a 330 (site swap) and i lost my first diabolo into a group of people sitting down talking. So as i went to apologise, i had forgoten about the other diabolo and it came down and hit me in the head! big lump!!!  :cry:
diabolo is my religion!
