Posted:So I'm sitting here waiting for the helpLESS desk to answer the phone so that my computer problem can be fixed, when I spot the most amazing thing ...

Has anybody else used the ball from their trackball for contact juggling?

Gelfling is a he...


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.

I have myself a nice pretty acryllic contact ball.
I have been practising it a little bit for a few months now.
and i can easily say that it is one of the hardest things i have ever tried to learn. i can tell that even if i practised hard for several years i would still suck at it.

But. its very fun. the crystal clear ball is very sexy. and people ask me how the ball sticks to my hand when i do the standard wave thingy.

in other words. Contact juggling is GROUSE

Posted:Not - really they would get in the way a lot with my current life style - if they were detachable then yes that would be great or better still if they could be internal and then emerge when needed, that way I wouldn't loose them. Actually I wish that were the case with all my external body parts. Then I wouldn't wake up with a dead arm or whilst running things wouldn't knock into other things etc.
