Yep, can't climb it without permission. I'd like to throw a diabolo off mt everest, or catch it near the bottom.
Skydive diabolo could be kinda cool.

think is it possible to throw a diabolo at the precise velocity and trajectory that the moons gravitational pull would sling shot it around the moon and back to you?

You can climb Ayres Rock, the native aboriginies would just prefer it if you didn't.

Yeh of course, they don't have any fences or anything from stopping you, but you still shouldn't climb it.
Bizzat1, your scaring me!

It would be pretty awesome to throw it off the Empire State Building, considering a penny could kill someone if it made it to the ground.  However, due to their small size the wind blows them back to a balcony type thing, and they never make it down.  A diabolo, however, (once you get past the security, the gates, the safety fences) would be able to be tossed far out, and with the wind, so it could be carried out for quite a distance.

DONT YOU WATCH MYTHBUSTERS!?!? A penny cant kill someone at terminal velocity, just really hurts.

It could if you recently had brain surgery performed, with your skull literally hanging by a few threads, and you just so happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.  :P

Or, if the penny cracks a brick off a nearby already crumbling roof which just so happens to knock you out, you fall down in the middle of a busy intersection in New York, and... well, you know. X^p

Don't forget the tourist looking up at the top of the tower with their mouth agape, the penny gets lodged in their throat, they slip off the sidewalk and land on a taxi cabs windshield.

There's thousands of variables Adam and Jamie left out in their "controlled experiment".  :P

And yet, they still prove that you can't drop a penny and have it kill someone as per the myth, which is the point of the show - to prove or disprove the conditions of the myth. Variables don't matter when proving or disproving the hypothesis of your experiment - it either does or doesn't work according to the conditions set.

Anyway, the only dream place I would want is being outside with no wind. I do love being outside, but it's very hard to practice high stuff when you can't figure out if you're throwing badly or your throws are getting taken off-course.

To practice in a large building with a/c and high ceilings, I'm tired of the sun, I'm tired of the wind and I'm tired of the brightness!!!! I hate Vova and his "Mansion" with "30 ft ceilings" no wonder he's the best he's pampered... >_>

I bet if you shot a bullet off the top of the empire state building it could kill someone.

Chuck Norris doesn't juggle, the balls are just too scared to stay in his hands for more than a second.
