Posted:lets see:

no lightbulbs, yet, although my mate did soon after I bought my first poi

I've taken several chunks out of the wall plaster in my apartment with my practise staff

slightly broken an iron (it leaks water now when I use it)

one fingernail

oh yeah one monkey fist at falmouth (went flying off into the night when I extinguished it to be recovered the next morning: thanks Durbs! Now currently in use as a fire cj ball by gelfling with its brother after I deliberately broke that one (it wasn't safe to use for Poi any more)

manhood, nose, head, arms, legs have all taken a beating from my Poi at one point or another, but thankfully none of them broke!

Although I did manage to burn off most of my eyelash and give my self a black eye (with soot) just before I went on a first date.

Because ActiveAngel sounds like a feminine deodorant

Like sex, I'm much more interesting in real life than online.

Posted:i recently snapped the end of my favorite spiral necklace spinning poi's with golfballs in the handles,
i was gutted, but it could have been my nose i guess!

1 aerotech juggling ball frown
Contact balls and mirrors on the floor dont mix!

Posted:I've broke nothing with staff, Poi, or Diabolo. I don't even understand how one can break lightbulbs (I don't mean how they can break, but how you can break them with poi).

one doesnt set out to break things, it just happens...and no one ever really knows how cos it always happens when your not actually looking.

Posted:I don't spin, but I have seen someone break up a party by getting someone so pissed off with their Poi that they pulled a gun out and fired it in the air, and everyone ran away.
