Posted:I love the attitude and cultured integration every member of this website shares and it's why I think most of us come onto this site so much. It's a great place to meet people with the same passions and learn some new moves, etc.

However, sometimes I think that for those of us that are a bit older than some of the younger members perhaps we are not considering what we post up as being as influencial as it might be.

I know that if I were a 15 year old and older and wiser people were discussing doing trips and mushies I'd see no real problem with doing them (which there isn't necessarily) but maybe we should think about this a bit more when we post on dangerous subjects. I know that in most cases this happens but I do get concerned sometimes that our younger friends may busk, take drugs, etc without being told first the good , the bad and the ugly !

I hope no members take offence from this, I am certainly not questioning the intelligence or responsibility of anyone here, but merely the format of information dispensed.

Posted:Mind gap,

My apologies mate, not having any idea of what you were like, etc I must admit I took your comments at face value and after reading your next thread I understand you better. I appreciate subtle humour and irony (Cantus, in a recent poll 8 out of 10 Jungle DJ's preferred irony to a kick in the nuts;)) but I guess I jumped the gun. Sos.

teine - don't get me wrong i would advise all people to experiment with as many different drugs as they can possibly lay their hands on. just as long as they realize they could kill themselves.

Posted:Ha! Kappa is a clothing brand that the filthy little Trev's wear while out crusing around the burger joints whilst listening to their old tape packs of happy hardcore! The rude boys of blighty basically!

Posted:As promised, tell me what you think:

Welcome to the Home of Poi community. We have many members from different backgrounds, who come together because they enjoy poi, staff, juggling, and other activities.

As we are a pretty social group, we also discuss what we do in our lives, our experiences and thoughts outside HoP. Our experiences are quite varied, and include some controversial areas, from drugs & sex, to firebreathing & nutella.

We try to be as open as we can about these things, and we also try to be very balanced. It is not our aim to influence people into trying things that they are not ready for, whether it be substances, poi or staff moves, firebreathing, or exotic sandwich spreads. We always try to address the good, the bad & the ugly about any subject.

As a community, we try and do this for ourselves. But we also have moderators, who are ready to step in if a discussion gets out of hand.

We hope that you will always feel comfortable and welcome here. And if you are ever unsure of anything, you feel that you can ask questions.


It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...
