i learnt to catch a (saggy) beanbag on my forehead last night.

i'm learning to chin balance stuff at the moment but am still crap at it.

not too bothered about really small or really big stuff but would like to be able to balance a club and do head rolls with balls eventually...

I saw a tepooka girl balance a spininning plate with the pole on her chin.

I can balance a baseball bat there but it requires ungracefull wandering about to maintain, must try clubs if i can get my hans on any.

this is one of my favouritests.

just qualified (in own mind, three times in a row is enough):

club on chin, sit down, lie down, touch head to floor, stand up again without dropping club.

a good one to practise is club on nose, throw to forehead. moooooost lovely.

hi aidan, aoife says hello and is just back from NYC today telling me about wierdos she met over there wink

'qualified' generally means that you've done it enough times to know that if you tried again for a while, you'd almost certainly manage to repeat it.

its like saying "i'm well on my way to having that trick in my repertoire".

Anthrax, theres a vid somewhere in the vids section (forget which thread) that shows someone (Spanner?) balancing a flaming bicycle on their chin whilst spinning two one handed butterflies with fire poi smile

Let's turn those old bridges we crossed into ashes.
We'll blaze a new trail,
and torch the rough patches.

hi

anybody interested in getting better at balancing stuff on chin/forhead/anyotherpartofbody take note wink . long things are easiest. try 'clean' brooms or mops, they're quite easy. (just watch the top)

Hi tears. wavehello Jak

A good one is to lie dow and place a glas of water on your forhead and try and stand up with out dropping it or spilling any then try and lie down again. I can do that one i Can also blance a spinning plate on a stick on by chin. another good one is banance a standing up hoop on your chin.

ohohohoh do what the kung fu martial artists do and stand in s slightly crouching position. Low enough so you can balance a bowl of water on one knee and another bowl on your other knee. Hold both hands out to the sides and balance a bowl of water on each and finally put one on your head.

Before someone states that it would be mightily difficult to place a bowl of water on your head whilst having your hands already full.... get someone else to place the water on your head.

one step ahead of the game lol ubblol

My friend balances 11 (maybe 12 now) milkcrates on his chin. it's insane. it's alot heavier than people realise

Bboy, juggler, tumbler staff spinner and general all round awesomness.
