I have only broken one drinkingglas. The diabolo flew trough the livingroom with great speed and bashed into a vase (thing with flowers in it, don't know the word), the vase dropped and tipped over a glas, the glas broke and the vase was still intact.

Many many times my diabolo missed objects with like 3 cm...
some people think they are better because they can do something better

i put 2 huge dents in the wall from throwing sticks, and i've dented a DVD case too...my ceiling in my bedroom has black streaks (infinite suicide in a 9 foot ceiling..totally doable)

i dont think i've caused serious harm to anything from a diabolo though

That video that you posted "Jam and Jelly" shows the guy whipping a diabolo into an overhead ceiling fan.  Classic comedy.  Why do people have these in their rooms?  I don't think I've ever seen one in a persons house.

My wall has a few dents and marks.  Have not actually broken anything (touches wood).  I guess the worse thing would be a high speed diabolo bouncing on the floor, jumped onto the PS2 where the new copy of GT4 was which sent it rocketing across the room with a great bit unreadable scuff mark on it.  I took it back and said it was faulty...

Hmm diabolo things i've not done that much... just scratched my guitar i think...  but with contact ball... i've dropped one on my brother's keyboard (a metal practice contact ball is quite deadly btw..) and i've also dropped it on a plate.  And a glass.   i usually do it outside now...  :lol:

I'm stupid, I always use mine in stupid places like the living room infornt of the fire, with all me ma's ornemants on the mantle piece, the funny things is I have never broken anything with my diabolo in my life, that is until yesteday when I went for a whip catch and hooked a little porcelin father christmas off the mantle with my string and slung it across the room. The peeves haven't found it yet which is lucky. Wonder how long my luck will last?

Yeah, me too. I'm in for some sore ears when it runs out. That idea about doing it outside seems to be a good one.

2 light bulbs in the last week - one was from a trapeze trick and the oher was attempting a whip catch. :wink: And now my light fitting wobbles more than it used to... I've stopped doing throwing tricks in my bedroom now  :P Trouble is there's much more stuff to break in the rest of the house, and as has been said, it's too cold o;utside. Though today's not too bad. *goes outside*

I never damaged anything really bad in my livingroom, except for the wooden floor... Suicides have put many dents and scratches into the floor. The door also got marks from my Circusses, and the ceiling didn't like my black Henry's alu handle... (infinite suicide)

Now I have this very nice place at the attic in our house (for in the winter). It's a little higher than in my room, and I can't break things in there. 8)

I havent broken anything with my diabolo's, but me, spink, sambo and jammy play diabolo inside of a pub most of the time and never break anything. Although, saying that me, sambo and jammy have only been playing 6-7 month. The worst things I ever did was knock over a pint and i bought the guy another (sprinkler pirrouette out) and i once hit a big, mean looking guy on the head with a finesse after missing a trick.
Spink once cleared a table of drinks about 3 years ago at a pub alldayer, luckily back the i used to play with yo-yo and that cant leave the string
 :wink:

The day before yesterday, I did an infinite suicide and hit a small lamp at the ceiling. (My room is at the last floor, the form of the ceiling is perfect for inf suicides, except for that stupid tiny lamps...)

I was quite surprised, because I was doing inf suicides there for years and never hit a lamp before (I was even more surprised of the splinter sticking(right word?) in my hand...) :D

One lamp shade, at a friend's house, rather embarrassingly.. although I've come very close to breaking most of the delicate things I own

Broke my mother "favrout" jug last night in the living room. Spent an hour with superglue to mend it and got my fingers covered in the stuff, hard to get it off.

And a cactus..
Missed an orbit catch... and my diabolo spun into a cactus that spead at greatspeeds across my room finally landing in my foot. found spines in my foot and in the diabolo. :roll:
