Posted:Tom_Brain - LOL! That's cool, you could do some awesome tricks by spinning 1 carrot and two donkeys...all sorts of patterns where the 'poi' unexpectedly merge and split apart to get the carrot...

Posted:hhhmmmm cat and bread fall on side, then cat cant get up because buttered side wants to roll over and land, and cat trying to roll onto feet the other direction. so cat stuck on its side. and they fall because they do, just what way they fall is determined.

Posted:My friend Brillo spun his pet ferrets a few times. I am now totally convinced that ferrets are completely indistructable.

When I still worked as a cook I spun two very large salmon. You people think that beming poi hurt, try getting hit with a 10 pound fish...

Posted:A guy I work with made a pair of tape-wad poi at work one night (UPS) and I was like "Poi!" He said you've seen this before? I said, "Yeah, I do it with fire." hehe... He's an E-tard. Also, we have little ball bearing rollers in the floor where I work for moving large containers full of packages around... I spend some night pulling the ball bearings out of the floor and juggling them.

Posted:was bored in calc, so i made poi outta masking tape, pencils and staples.(full size) and my teach got mad, cuz i wasted soo much tape.
i have also spun two small(3yr old) children on child leashes. luckily, we were related, or else their moms would have been mad.

Posted:two sensitive 3d mice (you know, the computer pointers that have little gyroscopes that allow you to move the mouse in 3d just by moving it through the air) I got two hooked up to two computers at a lan party, reenforced the cable with a cord, so it wouldn't break, turned on mouse trails and put fireball cursurs on the screen, and spun away. made some really neat patterns.

I hope you're not serious about this. frown I know ferrets are pretty much indestructable but spinning them is not cool in any way.

Donkeys on the other hand have no feelings so spin them to your hearts content beerchug

I guess my point is still valid: It's cruel to spin any animals smaller than donkeys wave
