If you do stuff in public that's what you'll get.  Maybe it feels like people all say the same thing, but I still think of it as a positive that they're showing an interest.

You're lucky, I just get kids running up and dismissive parents saying: "oh, isn't that clever what that man is doing? Isn't that clever Johnny?"

Only once have I gotten an older person saying almost the exact same thing you got from your passerby. It was amusing.

I quite often get exactly the same thing.... but when I'm yo-yoing. An 80-year old guy [1] had a go on one of my pro-yos last year, and did a mean Rock The Baby.  :)

In America, when we diabolo in a public space, we get cops yelling at us to leave.
Oh, and parents saying that its all attached to the string.

When I was in Iceland, some old guy stopped right in between me and my camera, and chuckled...it was remotely frightening. At least she knew what it was.

The people who throw their, O so intelligent, comments at me are 60 to 70 years younger than that charming granny. And they are male. So no action for me either.

No :-*

Have to agree with that. Her voice is just perfect as a perfect character like old lady.

Wow do I hate that kid. I'm not sure who I hate more, the kid, or their parents. Damn toddlers beat the **** of of my finesses.

Yeah that's why I wanted to show it, it's just THE typical stereotype of an old little granny :)

That's sound from the church, I guess there was some kind of ceremony inside. There also was a little boy constantly kicking a ball against the church. I am pretty sure the people inside the church must have heard it. I was about the give him a kind pet on the shoulder for doing so but he suddenly left :(

people either stare at me like I'm crazy or say "wow, that's so cool!!" when I diabolo in public.
I like the second response better.
