Need help!!!
« on: January 19, 2011, 08:13:08 pm »
Hey Guys,

I'm planning of doing a solo talk for my English class on "The Diabolo" but I need some answers to these questions:

1.The creation of the diabolo
2.Famous Diaboloists
3.Kind of Diabolos (monobolo, clutch ball-bearing, fixed axle)
4.Styles of Diaboloing (1d, 2d, 3d...)


If you have any answers, then please share them with me.

Thanks

Theres a secret, mystic website that only an exclusive number of students and internet professionals know about. I Will for once reveal this website, at the cost of me being excluded from the secret club of internet Masters.

The site holds a massive amount of intelligence, and power which will destroy this World as we know it if it falls into the wrong hands. Use this website with extreme caution.

Ladies and gentlemen, behold: www.wikipedia.com

Please for the sake of my safety, do not tell anybody i sent you there.

Tipper's on to something here...

Anyway, I will tell you that (according to a MR Babache thingy that came with some diabolo) diabolo was invented by the chinese a long time ago. It made a very loud noise when span, simalar to the bearing, I guess. Then some europeans got it and called it the Diaballo, greek for throw across, or something along those lines.

maybe try double check that info though, it was from something I read a very long time ago. I have a sketchy memory for these kind of things.

You have to read the page. Closing your eyes and waving your hands around doesn't yield results. On the wikipedia page, there are specific sections for everything, except famous diaboloists, but it does list a few names. Famous diaboloists, you just look on youtube, top 20 diabolo videos.
Sorry for my awful posts years ago. I was even more anal and un-self-aware than i am now.

1.The creation of the diabolo

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diabolo#History_and_etymology

2.Famous Diaboloists

Use your common sence (if you have one...). Who do you know as legendary diaboloists? You're a diaboloist yourself, you should know this. (My bids are mainly the Mad French Possé, Sean and so on.)

3.Kind of Diabolos (monobolo, clutch ball-bearing, fixed axle)

Again, how many do you know other than those? Common sence...

4.Styles of Diaboloing (1d, 2d, 3d...)


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diabolo#Multiple_diabolos <---- Read from there to the bottom of the page


Was it really THAT hard to read a page of text? I just did the whole research for your speech in 5 minutes...

For a start I've only been Diaboloing for 3/4 of a year and I'm 14 years old + the only famous diaboloist I know is Ryo Yabe (sorry for all the other famous ones out there).

i started seriously diaboling last summer and i can tell you more than that just from reading the forum.
mad french posse ryo yabe sean arjan the sharpes etc. diabolo comes from the words dia (throw) and bolo (across)_ in greek i think but not too sure.
and theres also whistle diabolos which were the first (the ones which made such a loud noise as you explained before) these have wholes in there disk shape cups which move the air making it whistle.

diaboloing styles:
theres also manipulation which an important one

When I did some searching about diabolo history while back I was really disappointed. Information is really scattered and not even wikipedia article has it as good as I hoped.

But here's another interesting page which I recommend you to read through:
