i was down speed whips in vertax then forgot it was unwrap so it hit me in the face, in fact i often do that cos the diab comes unwrapped by itsself!

oh and i did a duo-genocide under my light bulb, in fact there's a funny video of that on my website entitled 0h dear (theidlehands.co.uk). hehe, bad mistake!

Stupidest thing with diabolo (there are so many)... probably is when JJ_777 and i were passing to one another with one on a balcony in excalibur.  A close second is when someone messed up with a whip, i walked over said, "No, this is how you do a whip catch" and then whipped the diabolo, swung it around to do a duicide to show off but hit myself in the head.
There are 11 types of people in the world.  Those who can count in binary and those who can't.

As long as you're reasonable when it comes to shoes, I guess a compromise can be made  :wink:

I thought high patterns would be fine outside with a bit of wind.  Damn ponds...  And the throwing stuff in anger or frustration, to have it end up in a tree of basketball net.

Fortunately, I've not managed to hurt myself in any humourous or serious way, touch wood.[1]

I tried a 9d rocket start.

He really did.. I and a number of other people were with him. He didn't succeed though.

yesterday, after a hard day of working in my new house and moving stuff I returned to my current home and took a beer. I can't handle alcohol very well because I don't drink much, so it hit me a little in the face. Nevertheless I took my diabolo's into the kitchen and tried a minigenocide. I didn't succeed, because my stick hit the light bulb in the middle of the kitchen and all lights went out. I had to find the main switch in the dark again, and I agreed with myself never to do minigenocides in the kitchen again.

Did you film the 9d rocket start?  That would be so great to watch..  :D

And what a way that would be to start a huge passing pattern, with lots of people.  Almost certainly wouldn't work, but still, if it did it'd be great.  It'd be funny to watch that many diabolos falling towards someone, anyway..

Once I did a toe grind... sorta

Also I would advise never trying to grab a spinning diabolo in your mouth, it just doesn't work...

Heh... right now i was practicing 3 low, and i was coming inside just walking up my front porch (it probably has enough room as a regular hallway in a house does). Well, I got half way, but I usually make it all the way. Anyway, i got half way and the diabolo dropped so I kicked it out of anger and decapitated a little sculpture in front of our door.  :oops: I put the head back on though, and its hardly noticible so no worries. LIVE FRANEKSTEIN LIVE!  :twisted:

I was doing some filming yesterday. I did a fan (which I'm not very good at yet). For some reason one of the diabolos popped out of the fan and hit a british tourist  :oops:
