Posted:to answer the first question, ya i have days when i can't poi for s&#t. it's quite frustrating. especially since i dn't always have time to practice so when i do have time i like to take advantage.

and to rid yourself of ants....well, they won't cross a line of chalk, so as a preventative measure you can chalk the entrances of your house or around the perimeter. and for me, i usually just used the Raid ant and cockroach spray and that worked really well. so does hairspray. but keep in mind, when you get rid of the ants, spiders tend to replace them.

I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

Posted:Spiders are good - they kill all the other insects and pretty much keep to themselves

Ants tho... find the gel SilverShadow mentioned - it's a poison that takes 8 hours to take effect or summat, so the lil'worker ants collect all this tasty sugary food... feed it to the larvae and the queen... and then it turns to poison and it gets the lot very effective.

On bad poi days i find it helps to purposefully whack myself with them a bit... gets out the frustration at least



Posted:Bad poi days hit all the time... Aim for a wall with your throwing tho, that way you can find your sock-poi again... hehehe

As for the ant's, Talcum powder or peppermint essence across their little anty trail if you don't want to kill the little sod's, or as the guy's above said Raid powder is pretty good cos they carry it back and the lot get nuked...

Posted:I am told a borax and sugar mix will be taken back to the nest and eventually kill the queen as well.

After many many months left hand spasticness is still a huge problem and have off days where even the right wont follow instructions very well. And as soon as they are out of line of sight ...BTB stuff is still out of the question.

Posted:On a bad poi day it helps enormously to throw them to one side and order a pizza instead. getting frustrated is only a bad thing.

If it's a suger ant problem make absolutely sure you have no food detritus anywhere. If it's army ants then it's probably you they're after.

There is a slight possibility that I am not actually right all of the time.

Posted:If those ants are about a quarter inch or larger, they may be carpenter ants, which means they're not only in your kitchen, they're eating your kitchen. All the ideas above are fairly effective, most kinds of ants are very reluctant to cross a white line...but if you need big guns, try some boric acid.

Never criticize someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes. That way, when you DO criticize them, you are a mile away, and you have their shoes.
