Title: Your dream place to diabolo?
Post by: zwiggelbig on May 28, 2008, 11:33:30 AM
Hey Couldn't find a topic about this so here it goes!

Do you have a dream place where you want to diabolo?
And do you think you will ever be able to do it? Or maybe you have already done it?
And also do you maybe have a trick that you realy wanne pull of there? ( lets say you want to do 3d high on top of the mount everest! )

I think many of you have a dream place where you want to diabolo like on top of the Eifel tower?

When I saw a summit of the Mount Everest on discovery I thought it would be fun to do 3d high there haha.

But I realy wanne diabolo on the eifel tower once :O Can't think of anything else at the moment.

In Willy Wonka's Chocolate factory on top of my Pterodactyl Pete who has a built in high def TV and surround sound speakers.
Oh, and my brontosaurus "Herbie" would be there too.

In Taiwan or Malaysia (somewhere with lots of crazy diabolists) or at a really big moviefestival (provided I get to watch the movies in exchange).

The ultimate dreamplace would be my own practicehall though. I´ll be looking for a warehouse to live in when I move from home ;D.

on the moon.... 10+high.

If you throw your diabolo they are not turning back....
Because there is almost no grafity on the moon.
You can walk on it but if you give a object a lot of speed.
It goes into space.
So you can throw 100000 diabolo's but you can catch one of them.

But thats the reason this thread is called "Your DREAM place to diabolo"

And my favorite place would be on a big field of grass with the perfect temprature 19C
And with the greatest diabololist '''Antonin'.
But he must speak dutch so I can understand what he is saying...

My school gym  :o

It is SOOOOO good, it's like a freakin' aircraft hangar, can easily make a high toss without touching the ceiling, and the floor is made of a really nice, smooth material.

Luckily I get to start booking it out next week onward, no more sports team trials!

Errm, actually the diabolo will come back down because the gravity on the moon only is 1/6 of earths norm. Imagine the integrals and suicides you could get on the moon. Duodecuple vertax genocide anyone?

On top of Uluru/Ayres Rock. Except it would kinda suck if you dropped your diabolo, what with the massive hike back down to find it and all. Pretty nice spot to make a video too
Title: Re: Your dream place to diabolo?

Is Ayres rock a sacred place for the native people of Australia.

Post by: Shaun on May 30, 2008, 01:55:20 PM
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.
Title: Re: Your dream place to diabolo?
Post by: dave from the grave on May 30, 2008, 02:54:10 PM
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?
Title: Re: Your dream place to diabolo?
Post by: JimmyCords. on May 31, 2008, 08:20:20 AM
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.

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.

Title: Re: Your dream place to diabolo?
Post by: CirqueKid on June 01, 2008, 11:10:25 PM
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.

Probably more than one MP3. Otherwise you'd bash your head out.
I'd bring scissors too. Long hair gets annoying over time. Jake?
Also, does thje diabolo roll away when you drop it? That could annoying if there was nothing to stop it.

I actually tried it in waterlogged, but it doesn't work, they do kind of float, but they don't spin at all which is the main issue. What about zero gravity??

How about a wrap around the string? You might be able to bring it to a slow spin, if not - hand start
