Posted:is it just me or do poi and staff have some kind of ethereal link to the mythical Jedi of film lore?

why is it we constantly refer to some things as zen (tha force) like "find the zen and can do that 7 beat btb weave"
and why is there that thread called the jedi set on the technical board

and why do the guys here at school call me a jedi and refer to the ikle guy (who is trying to become me) my "padawan" when they dont know anything about this site or poi???

im sorry its been on my mind a bit and its bugging me!!!

are we in fact all jedi who must now protect the galaxy from war and keep the peace, cuz were not doing much of a good job!

Posted:Did anyone else do the Jedi thing on the last census? Basically (in case you've never heard of it or are outside the uk) if there are more than 10 000 completed census forms with the same religion it has to be officially recognised.
Anyway, needless to say a lot more than 10 000 filled it out including myself so I am actually, officially, a government certified Jedi Poi Spinner!! How cool is that! Now I just gotta learn staff so I can take on Dark Maul!!

it explains where he personally got the jedi label from in the first post...

its not just good poi and staff stuff that gets labelled jedi though - i've seen skaters, snowboarders, bmxers, dancers and martial artists referred to as 'jedi'.
i think the idea of a jedi is so deeply ingrained into pop culture now that any example of high dexterity and control might get referred to as 'jedi'.

or maybe all my friends are just sci-fi geeks...

Posted:obviously alienfox is a sith among our midsts.

ive never heard of any of the "extreme sport" guys i hang out with link their sport to the jedi, its only a poi thing as far as i ever knew.

also coleman, IF that is your name, you know what i mean about the jedi set thread...
but ur right about the cultur ingaining thingy.

any way, im off to go and focus the force around my poi by filling them with fungi...

Kudos to Rogue Dragon – that is indeed Jark!
Margita – I stole Jark in an evil and shameful way, and added a fire staff and animated him. I don’t know who the original artist is or I’d give him a ‘shout out ’ – it was just to cool to resist.

Now stop quoting him !!! that’s how I find my posts!!!

As for special faery magik, I am wise enough not to debate the point. X x
