Posted:Plenty. I'm 17, just turned, and i do Fire Poi, Rope Torch, 3 Ball Juggling (trying to get 5 damnit!), and i'm looking to buy myself a unicycle and a straight jacket within the next 8 months. And of the people in my area, who most all of them happen to be on this site, i'm the second oldest i believe.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is not a trick, this is a stunt. The difference between a stunt and a trick is that a trick is something that tricks or fools the audience, a stunt is something that only an idiot would do -Ivan, Ash Circle, 10/04/03

Posted:I'm only 15. Just poi, no fire yet. I play with a stick every so often. Juggleing sounds like fun, need too find a few balls to try that with around the house.

Posted:eeeeh aerotechs were proper then. Red n blue they were, none of this UV-White malarkey. And these new-fangled 'poi' things, they're just floppy swinging clubs for stiff wristed kids who play too much space invaders. My old mate Willy J Schatz would give em what for if he hadn't bought it at that exhibition in '39. He was trying a 17 beat waistwrap with full arm circles. Poor bugger tore himself limb from limb.

Posted:I'm 22 and feel old.... sigh, back to rereading Tennyson. "Old age hath yet his honor and his toil / death closes all, yet something ere the end / some work of noble note, may yet be done / not unbecoming men who strove with gods"

But back when I was a spring chicken in high school, my friends (ages 13-18, I guess) were the ones who hung by their knees from the poles in the subway and juggled upside down on our way home from school. ::drifts off into pleasant memories::

Somehow I have a feeling all the old people *coughBamBamcough* are gonna hang out here, attempting to hold onto their youth. *tragic sigh*



I don't know how people can feel an age. That's always confused me. I don't feel an age, I feel like me. And in being me, I can be silly, serious, smart, and stupid. Acting an age never made sence, because an 11 year old and a 17 year old can act the same way on a regular basis, be it silly or sophisticated. At times, I may feel older, or younger, but never a certain age. I have never felt an age. O.o'
