Posted:i was working with some friends yesterday at moving around some road barricades for an event at CMU called buggy. we had to move these massive barricades (15feet long) made out of two by fours all the way across campus (which sucked because there were like 6 of them and they had to be moved in three pieces each) and chain them to a bikerack temporarily. so we get there and my friend pulls out a massive chain... about 8 feet long and weighing like 30lbs... and i thought, i've got to try...

so i spun it, with wraps and everything, my friends had never seen me spin so they were like whoa...

so, whats the hearviest/most dangerous thing you've ever spun?

Posted:Joe Six Step's Flower basket poi, unlit.

That skinny man spun them lit...insanity, I tell you. Frodo spun them too.

I didn't spin them WELL, mind you, but I did a three beat weave...

You can't avoid pain by fencing yourself from it.
Some times you need the help of others more than anything else
But you have to let them close enough to help......
People want to be needed, I found that out too

Posted:chains with 6 glowsticks attached to each (makes a rainbow wall of light when you spin them smile )

I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons for you are crunchy and good with ketchup.

Posted:one of my mum's mates has a pair of lead poi, and he was spinning, and some fool walked in his spinning path, and they knocked him clean out...

We are the music makers, We are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams;
We are the movers and shakers of the world for ever, it seems.

And all that's jazz

Posted:I actually taught myself to spin using socks full of gravel which were pretty heavy, around 400g each - really good for finger strength actually, never have any problems holding other poi. Also consequential - teaches you not to connect with any part of your anatomy right quick (Like when learning the butterfly . . . ooooh).

However, I'm currently in a deep state of depression as I took them on roventure (camp for venturers - 15-18yo - and rovers - 18-26yo scouts) and one of the vennies, saying 'I can catch these!' Spun one fast and let go, sending said poi flying straight into the middle of a river. *cries ignomiously*

Apart from that, the heaviest thing I've ever spun was probably half-bricks. Hurt like BUGGERY if they connect.
