How many diabolos can you balance on your head?

Everyone must have done this at some point. My best is 4, but I only had 4 diabolos at the time. I wonder if there's a record. Anyway, how many can you do?

I'm pretty sure it was his chin.

Oh yeah. I videoed Squiggle/Jake balancing four diabolos on a bottle on his chin back stage at our circus performance today (No drops except for the three passing! YESSS! :D). He got some good applause from everyone in the dressing room  ;)
Maybe we'll put it in a video sometime(Like the one we have been putting off for the last.. 3 months? :P)

Ten?! How did he get them on top of each other? Did he do a tower of them on the floor first and then pick it up, or did he have someone with a stepladder to help him :P.

I think that Trash puts them on the floor before hand, Otherwise he'd have to throw them up!

If you can find the convention video from Ieper 2005, at 5:58 there's a fellow balancing 11-12 diabolos on a European club on his chin.  That's a fair few I think.  It's fortunate that diabolos stack nicely.

trash can do something similar, but it looks more like a diabolo leaf.

Well I paused and took a screenshot
Still look like 5?

I count at least 10, maybe 11. It gets pretty sketchy towards the top

Actually because of the angle you can't see them, 20 cups, 10 diabolos ;)

Its definatly ten, But it doesn't look like they're on his chin. Look closely, you can see what might be his arm..?
