Posted:idle wonderings...how many people in the world twirl (anything)?what percent of them are actually serious poiers?what percent of poi moves come from traditional Maori poi?oh and last night i just got my first direct open-eye hit from the glosticks.

Spinning fast, too. Not even the nads hurt so bad; it took about 20 minutes recovery and my eye is still red. I did some estimation, and found that there is a 1/1,500 chance of getting hit in the eye, and a 1/1,750 chance of getting hit in an open eye.But then I realized that even knowing the percentages involved does not help me at all, so I guess I'll just twirl and take my lumps.

Posted:There are a lot more nerves in the eye and it's surrounding area than in your....erm....sensitive region. This is because (and i know i'm gonna get stick for this) your eye is a much more necessary organ than your other bit....As to percentages, if the club i was in on friday night is anything to go by, about 55% of the population do poi....

Posted:yeah Phunky! Fetch a clipboard. You take that side of the street and I'll take this side. Ask everyone if they do poi and if they're happy with their detergent.Meet back here at three with your results.
