Ok, it had to be done, so I am doing it.


*You have set fire to your clothes more than three times in your life.

*(Men only) you have hit yourself hard in the nads at least five times in one day.

*You are no longer bothered by the puzzled look on the cashier's face as she rings you up for three cans of white gas and a pack of bic lighters.

*You always have a lighter on you, even though you don't smoke.

*Your idea of a good time is to spend a night making strangers stop and stare at you.

Any others?

Awesome thread!

...if the elevator door opens at work and people stare at you buzzsawing inside it with your keys and your access card.'ve ever sat infront of a sewing machine for 4 hours making poi for your girlfriend. (they look awesome, by the way)'ve ever heard your mother bragging on the phone to her friends:'you should see my son's new hobby'

you chose gambit as the character you're going to a comic character-themed fancy dress party purely on the basis his weapon is a staff and it's motivation to learn some moves

u dream of a day when technology becomes advanced enough to make fire poi without any wires attached a completly rational concept

You'd rather not take the plane than leave your poi behind.

Ask a question and be a fool for a minute...don't ask and be a fool your whole life.

You close your eyes at night and see twirly fire patterns
The person sleeping next to you is twitching and fire spinning in their sleep
You look at building machinery and think 'antispin'
You've been contact spun around someone's body

If you spin you're bags of groceries like poi.

You're reading this thread.

You aren't thinking or really existing unless you're willing to risk even your own sanity in the judgment of your existence.

You take the light bulb out of the closet to replace the one you just broke spinning poi, then break that witin 15 minutes.
*wanders off to replace lightbulb again*

Too many secerets are locked in side your minds, but your all equal in life, equal in love. your all building castels in the sky dreaming of a better world.

You don't bother putting a lightbulb in the ceiling light and just light the room with a desklamp safe in the corner...

You stand talking to friends with a lanyard attached to a bunch of keys and you start spinning without thought, hitting yourself on your head....

You destroy half of your socks while searching for the best ones to make sock poi from.

When you read the first "sock" word in the sentence before, you immediately think of sock poi instead of realising I meant socks for wearing smile

ubblol i totally thought that! then i read second bit...went confused ...reread & laughed a lot! ubblol might be a spinner if most of your holidays are planned around meeting up with people to spin firey things...

(no last three holidays involved common ground 06, christmas/new years 05/06 trip to melburp (included sunday spin), & common ground 05!!) ubblol

do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and good to eat!

if at first you do succeed, try not to look too astonished!

smile! :grin: it confuses people!
