Title: "Why did I do that?"
Post by: CirqueKid on June 17, 2006, 11:51:41 PM
What is the stupidest thing you've ever attempted while diaboling?

Mine would be probably trying to make a basket with the diabolo at a gym, and getting it tangled in the net.  They had to bring in a special crane type thing to get it down for me.

A close second would be doing a genocide, and when the stick swung around got caught in a cieling fan.

Probably when i tried a genocide inside Mr Halls class and almost made the shield to the lights on his roof come down.  :shock:  I fixed it though. Hehe, sorry Hall sensei.  :oops:

Title: Commando diabolo!8)
Post by: William on June 18, 2006, 06:12:36 AM
This is a good topic, once I got angry and threw my diabolo and sticks as far as I could and they ended up in the far end of the neighbours yard so I had to jump the fence and get them, it was fun though because I felt like a bit of a commando  8)

Once I got mad because I had a bad day and I didn't even catch a single throw! I was throwing for about two hours and just didn't catch a single throw.. I got mad and kicked the diabolo as hard as possible!!! :twisted:   and it flew over our house in the middle of huge rosebush.... It was painful.

yesterday I wanted to do a minigenocide behind my back, and I was lucky, because the stick would almost certainly have hit me in the face... but it didn't. That is a trick I won't try again I think, or is it done before?

Doing diabolo close to water. I was doing some 2d stuff on a small dock, when the other diab flew to water, I rushed after it and managed to catch it. Then I looked back at the dock, and wait a minute, where is my other circus?  So it had obviously sank. The water was not deep at all, but I wasn't that warm either. I had to look for it for two days before I found it, or my cousin did, man was I reliefed.

Another stupid thing would be The pantless man doing diabolo..

I won't try that again soon.

At home, it was late at night, I was doing diabolo in my boxers and a shirt.  I thought to myself, "hey i haven't done between the leg blind whips in a while..."  Fill in the rest of the story yourself... >.>

apart from many unmentionable diabolo mishaps involving late night diaboloing in boxers (you think i would have lernt my lession!) one i was doing a 2 high and i tried a 330 (site swap) and i lost my first diabolo into a group of people sitting down talking. So as i went to apologise, i had forgoten about the other diabolo and it came down and hit me in the head! big lump!!!  :cry:

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.

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]

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..

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:

tried that excalibur pirouette whip catch busk does in buskonature(where you throw it out to one side, but do the pirouette to the other) with a double pirouette today - no good idea; fell on the floor while the diabolo was still in the air...don't know why, but it suddenly came down towards the floor - where I was still lying on - so it hit a very sore spot, right in the centre of my loin -> big ouch!  :x  :roll:

I don't remember and I was just going to trasfer it to the computer when I realized that the video is in Finland  :? .

Back on topic: Do I win a prize for having the most "Why did I do that's?". Because here's my third "Why did I do that?". I was doing some filming today by a creek.  :D  And the other diabolo fell in the water, which was about 6 meters below. And the diabolo was about 2 meters below the surface. Then I rushed to the hardware store, bought some yellow duckt tape, a hook, some string, and a window washer. I assembled my "fishing rod" and started rescuing my precious diabolo. After 15 minutes I managed to get it back. That was a lot of fun!  :D

Oh! Oh! I have one "why did I do that?" too! I threw my sticks and diab high up above the stars, they flew like ducks they did.. Anyway.. They got stuck on a branch. Couldn't climb up because I think I might be afraid of heights. Bough some rope and tape and ice-tea. Tied the rock to the rope with the tape and slinged it over the branch. Pulled the tree of its roots with the help of dalezilla and managed to get 'em back.

HEY! :D  I dont remember who was behind the camera, but it wasnt me. And I just have a different views about things. Sometimes a diabolo vid just needs some old people jogging on the background. 8)

Okey back to the topic..I smashed my glasses once. First came the huge scars and then they splintered. It was kinda expensive to me, but whatta heck at last I learnt something what not to do.....

I once was in a park and someone asked me how high I could toss the diabolo in the air. It was quite crowded, but as it wasn't all that windy I figured I could toss it as high as possible. too bad there was a bit of wind high in the air and when the diabolo came down it went towards a group of people sitting in the park, not knowing what was about to happen. oops.... :)  I really was very lucky to get the diabolo out of the air by whipcatch just in time, because otherwise I don't know the little girl that was beneath it would have survived...  Next time I'll watch carefully if there is enough space to do something like that!

Something else, a bit more painful was a attempt for a sun between the legs from back to front. I wasn't wearing a shirt so the spinning diabolo hit my belly to leave a burnmark which you can still see after 2 months...

doing high tosses when its so dark out you cant see the diabolo. Staring into the dark sky, waiting for my Diabolo to come back down to me, not be able to discern the diabolo from the sky, I didnt noticed when It headed straight for my upheld face. I got a Handsome fat lip from that.

Post by: krazyfk on October 19, 2006, 06:48:23 PM
Probably at school when people asked how high I could throw and it hit someone who was watching in the crowd. Or maybe it was the time when I flayed my best friend to death while attempting a whip catch. Or possibly the time I threw it up high and started talking to someone. Forgot about diabolo and it came zooming towards my head. ;D

I was rehearsing with cardsharp for a talent show last year and dropped a trick. cardsharp was doing a sun or something as I was chasing my dropped diabolo and BAM I'm hit in the head ???. Luckily, we switched to diabolos a short time before that because I'd imagine that having a hard plastic Chinese yo-yo to the head would've been much more painful. We had a friend take a video of our rehearsal and it was pretty funny watching myself getting hit in the head in replay over and over again :D

due to lack of sleep and a 3 pints of lager i decided that it could be possible to throw 2 diabolo's in the air triple back flip, whip catch them both with seperate sticks and bring it into a 2 diabolo shuffle using both strings, think again, failed my first backflip, got up pulled out my other sticks, whip caught my ear, flailing peice of string hit my eye and my other diabolo, the remaining diabolo hit me on the head, the one i caught flew straight into my nads. got a nice red eye, high pitched voice for 20 minutes, and the biggest headache possible in the morning. Well, not trying that in the near future.

This is un-diabolo related, but
I once had a tantrum with Devil Sticks, indoors, and then I got mad, so I threw them. They ended up in the wall, right through the drywall. We ended up hanging a painting there..XD

And, one time I got mad again, so I threw my sticks at the ground, and one snapped in half, but we glued it the next day.

And, I hit my dog and made her whine.

Once i used my diabolo to get my frisbee out of a tree. Funnily enough it didnt back fire, both came down just fne.

Allthough i once pulled an infinite suicide under a tree, took a short while untangling the strings.

Ah, and there was the time i hit the policeman on a bike...

At one point i noticed my circus was abit on the loose side, but didnt think much of it. Kept diaboloing then put it on a look and walked off. It fell apart and bits went everywhere. Verry nearly lost the very centre axle piece.

Also once oponed a glass bottle but broke the neck, seeing i couldnt  drink from the bottle i used a diabolo. reaaaaally not a good idea.

Once I was on a walk near my house with most my family and my uncle and cousins. Me and my brother were both diaboloing. So, we got to this bit where we were walking along with a lake on our right and a stream running parallel to the path on our left about 10m away.
So, I was just doing some normal tricks as we went along and decided that it would be a good idea to do a whip catch. I missed it, spectacularly: The diabolo hit the ground and hurtled off towards the stream. I ran after it, and saw it suddenly disappear off the bank into the stream. I tried to stop and ended up teetering on the edge of the bank, and had to jump in to fetch it out  >:(

In my old house there was this huge pine tree in front of my house that was way taller than the power lines. So my cousin and I decided to get on opposite sides of the tree and try to throw the diabolo over the very top of the tree. But when I threw the diabolo it never came down on the other side because it was sitting in the very top. Lucky for us there was a tire swing hanging from it so we climbed up the rope and shook the diabolo out of the tree about an hour later...not so smart.

many many genocide attempts indoors... my ceiling is scarred with random black spots from my sticks :-/

i once tried to throw my diabolo up over a tree, run to the other side and catch it. i did it like four times and then on the fifth i got it stuck about 30' up above my head (yey high tosses) that sucked. i couldn't diabolo for three days

OK, it's with a yo-yo rather than a diabolo, but still...

Also, there was the time, many years back, where I did a high throw with a Renegade diabolo (i.e. hard, solid plastic) and it landed between Charlie Dancey's outstretched arms as he held a newspaper in front of him.   :o

Hi im new but anyway i was trying this trick my friend taught me (neck bounces, i dunno if you guys call it somat else) and i screwed up and the diabolo landed on my nose and rolled up my face and i had long hair at the time it took a while to untangle and for the swelling of my face to go down

i know, i know, this is probably one of the most stupid things that u can do with a diabolo, but me and my friend michael were throwing the diabolo up as high as we could and closing our eyes... my friends hit him on the back but mine hit me on the face and it HURT

well the other day i was juggling 3 rings and was trying to do all three in the air pirouette but when i started my spin i saw that the first one i threw up in the air was hitting the ground when i was only 90 degrees around in my spin so i gave a sad face and looked down (dumb, i know when there are still two in the air) but the y both came down and whacked me on the head as i was bending ove rto pick the first one up

Mine would have to be having the string around the back of my neck and catching the diabolo on the string... Diabolo had heaps of spin and i missed judge the bounce and it hit me in teh face, actually broke skin too! :S

Or trying to do a chinese whip behind my back and had the sticks to close to my back and the string whipped my leg... had a red mark there for 3 days..... :-[

well, i did it again. i got it stuck in a tree. i mean it looked cool cuz i thought it was gonna slide off but then it didnt. it got lodged in a few branches about thirty feet up and i ended up trying to throw a tennis ball at it, then a stick with some more weight to try to hit the branch. keep in mind that this is at night, the diabolo stuck in the tree is a glow one and it's snowing outside. the stick hit the branch about twelve times but nothing short than a direct hit to the diabolo would bring it down. so i got my other diabolo. this time, however i was smart. i put my diabolo parallel to the branch so it couldnt grind on the branch and get stuck like the other one. i threw it up at least... twenty times all coming very close and half of them hitting the branch. eventually i hit the diabolo with my other one and they both came down. YEY!

...now comes the part where i get confused on why i did it. so, i teach a juggling club that i had today and that happened yesterday. the thing that i don't understand is that i went outside...at ten thirty...and knowingly threw my diabolo where there were branches...when i had diabolo club the next day. either way i got it down and i'm really happy but i just don't understand why i did that...

well, i did it again. i got it stuck in a tree.


My question is how many times does it have to get stuck learn not to throw diabolos around where there are trees?

well... i basically live in a forest so i don't really have that option. besides, there was a clearing where i was in the driveway but a gust of wind came and started moving it off course in midair. then it got stuck really securely in some branches. to answer your question: a lot of times.

WHen i was learning vertax stuff i inverse trapezed to get the diabolo of the string but because the string was fluffy it came off late and hit me in the eye, nice bruise for a couple of days.

most stupid thing ive done was i was in a hurry so i tied a loose knot on my sundia carbons. i practiced for a bout 10 min, then when i was doing a vertax genocide, the stick flew off at full speed, my 2 year old cousin ran by, and it flew in between his legs. close call.

if youve read my other posts, you will see i have a knack for detroying things, losing diabolos, or hurting people due to carelessness.

I did a vertax genocide near an lantern.. And I tried to wrap the stick around it but that went terrible wrong! The stick flew around so fast and it hit me =(

And.. I did a fingergrind near a channel for a video.  me | --- Channel

And I was facing the channel while I Did it.. And ofcourse I MISSED THE STRING! And bye bye diabolo  :'(

While practicing, I noticed that a little girl at my apartments had gotten her ball stuck in a tree.  I threw my diabolo up to knock the ball down, which worked, but the diabolo stayed in the tree.  I had only one other diabolo to use, so I threw that one up, as well.  Luckily it knocked the first one out and didn't get stuck.

I was diaboloing in front of my church, when my wife told me to show the onlookers how high I could throw it.  I chunked it really high, and it landed on the roof.  I thought it would roll off, but it got stuck in the gutter, which is about 25 feet off the ground.  I had to climb up on a brick ledge and use a really long rigged up pole that we found to get it out.  It took over 30 minutes!

I was doing this weird trick to enter to a mini genocide when it ended up on the wrong dark side. So I tried it the other way, forgetting that I was relying on the direction if the spin and the control of my right arm to make it pass just over my face. The diabolo went straight into my face and killed.

just today i was practicing 2d. i was workin on alot of arm stalls, eventually it got to the point where my wrists were all covered in string burns, so i tried to shift my arm to avoid the burned areas. im not sure what happened, but the string got caught up and jumped up right into my face! the other diabolo fell on my foot. that really sucked.

Made a high toss and miscalculated the catch.  It scratched me under the nose and now I have dermatitis.  :(
