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.
If I could have "created" fire, I would have made it hot pink!:)

Same experience Matz. Really hurts if the edges of the diabolos are sharp..  :-\

both funniest and dumbest thing i did a genocide in the school hallway when the track team was running through (our track is covered in snow) and almost hit one of the girls and they jumped out of the way into a wall the whole team soon learned the lesson: don't run through the juggling club practice HA!

I got the somekind of case like that. I was performing Diabolo in poland, mountains, at public square, doing  suicides, and other smilar things, then there camed seniors, witch were at holidays, they didn't notice me doing chinese suicide, and walked close to me, and  it was about 5 cm (two inches) to hit one lady in her glasses.
phew.

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

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...

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.
