Posted:Stickyfish - Jet Li swings his child around on a rope and hits people with him. Really has to be seen to be fully appreciated.Li/Lee, doesn't really matter, I don't think - it's just a phoenetic interpretation in any case. Normally spelt Li on posters, though.I feel inspired - I'm off to make a pair of midget poi.....

Posted:Jet Li, Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan all use many of the things we dance with in very creative manners in their movies.FOr a more complete listing of spinning in the movies, look at the article on the home page about it. Or for in the mass media try looking here....http://www.homeofpoi.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/000893-2.htmlWhen I did a search there were many places to look.------------------Pele Higher, higher burning fire...making music like a choir...http://www.pyromorph.com

Posted:No P. I think you've misunderstood. I was meaning specifically spinning children. I haven't been gone so long that you've forgotten how my style of humour works have I?

Posted:Cantus, my sweet, that was for the benefit of the others. You and I both know that twirling children is not hard at all, now horses, cows and other forms of large mamalia, that is a different story.

Posted:Personaly I like to twirl small furry animals, like puppies and ferrets and stuff.Opposums are great, they already have a nice tail to swing them by, and they just sit back and don't protest much when you spin them...

He is a sarcastic, too intelligent for his own good, little smart ass with angel eyes and a lovely smile.....and I love him dearly!**Warning, animal activists, do not read the following**Anyway, wanna hear something a bit gross really (Santana's 'Possum theory is sparking this)? I have a Python (which technically could be an interesting swinging tool on her own) and she eats rats. I won't feed her live rats however, it is too dangerous but I also don't like the frozen ones. So, I purchase live rats, wrap them in a plastic shopping bag and swing them hard so they slam against a door jam and die instantly without pain. My poi skills actually translate over in an odd way. I know how to control the trajectory to make sure I hit their spine just right. It's more humane than the other ways of killing them, and doesn't create a mess or result in blood loss, which my Python needs for nutrition. And yes, I have tried just holding them by the tail to do it, but then I can look into their beady red eyes and feel guilty and, their tails are really slick...nearly had one get away once. Since I just did this an hour ago, it is fresh in my mind and thought I would share.------------------Pele Higher, higher burning fire...making music like a choir...http://www.pyromorph.com
