Posted:I was just wondering today what it's like for antipodeans having spin upsidedown all the time. I imagine that the gravity pulling the poi upwards would make everything realy quite strange or do you have special poi with the same type of gravitational properties as your "hats-with-corks-on-strings"?

Has anyone on this side of the globe tried to simulate these conditions by hanging themselves upsidedown while spinning? Is it as much fun as it seems in my head?

Love & Peace from Lingfield

Posted:Hmm, interesting. Though i think that if you kept a constant speed it wouldn't really affect your spinning. Other than small things, like btl moves would be a bit more dangerous.

Posted:to conclude this deate, i propose someone stand in a toilet bowl, wearing a cork hat, spinning poi, and then have someone press the flush button which should start you spinning around in a clockwise direction~!
(i don't think this will actually prove anything, but it'd be damn funny to see )
