well my worst is probably this.

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.

but that was quite a while back, my most recent one is going to me i was trying umbrella, in the limited space in my bedroom, pulled and hit myself in the side of the face, buckling my glasses and leaving a red mark. Fixed my glasses and gunna try it again today :D

I've noticed one starts causing more mistakes the more they practice. I've dinged the ceiling in the physics room at school numerous times, hit the expensive projector mounted to the ceiling in the physics room, received many blisters (by the way, the cycling gloves trick does work sometimes), almost impaled someone on sticks, nearly taken out a few eyes, almost given a few people headaches and almost eradicated my boyfriend's nose.


Yet sadly... all that seems minor to what others have done.  :D

I've hit the projector and ceiling in my classroom many times.(same one Zane has) My best friend cut his head open fooling around with it. the worst  though was when I threw it 2 stories up on a windy day. I walked forwards to catch it, tripped, rolled over and it landed on my crotch. >_<

Sliped on something slippy some idiot left on the street (lampoil a put there myself...) while performing streetshows today. I  landed on my rigth elbow, and hurt it quiet a bit... doesnt feel like I can practice for a few days. Selfinflicted injury, but it really sucks annyway.

finger Axel! In my day diabolos were made of lead and the nearest juggling shop was 4 days trek by donkey! but seriously you gotta get a few scars while you learn dude . however finger axels are quite fun for stupidly long finger grinds so you should still get a set if you fancy, I could expand my point about about scars to your diabolos and sticks, war wounds are a right of passage.

Many times I have lobbed the diabolo very very high in the air and had it land on my face. I have white scars all down my arm from doing arm orbits tricks. Also I invented my own trick for maximum destruction in a crowded area. Get the diabolo spinning very fast then right hand loop it once. Throw it all up in the air and the sticks spin random directions in the air around the diabolo...deadly. For some reason the skin on my hands has gone realy crusty, most likely due to the constant use of my aluminium sticks.

Yes, diaboling is dangerous, my friend was doing loop diabolo earlier today and he flung it around the loop realy fast and it whacked me straight in my face with the cups grinding my cheeks and my nose hitting the axle. Im lucky that it was so cold that my face had already gone numb :D

Yes, that move has given me a very bloody knuckle, 'cause I have a finger grind axel and when I catch the diabolo again my stick is slanted upwawrds and the finnesse goes straight down and sandpapers my knuckle. Also trying mulitiple pirouettes is really disorientating, you have no idea where the diabolo is in relation to your head ::).

Oh, I shouldn't forget the genocide I did the other day! I swung the stick really aggresively and when it rewrapped, because it is very old string, it rewrapped FAST. I should not have tryed to catch the stick... it really hurt my finger.
