The worst thing that happened to me with clubs was a bloody lip i get split and cracked finger nails from working on rings though it doesn't happen too often though.



ok. there is the full quote.

Hex, you did change it enough to sound like pre had confused clubs and rings. spank the bold section, though a typo, almost makes it make sence.

However pre,

If you dont want your words misinterpreted, I sugest you learn to form better sentances. or just sentances. wink

Cracked and broken nails!

But yes, you are correct that they Written by: Pre
are totally different props



One is shaped like a Hoola Hoop (of the edible variety) and the other is shaped like a bowling skittle.



You can guess which is which.. wink

Posted:Ok so, have we established that Pre has had a split lip from club juggling and split fingernails from ring juggling?

I have managed to stun myself with a club once. I saw stars and everything. I had to sit down for 10 mins before I felt normal again. I've never really juggled rings. I have a fear of paper cuts and for some reason rings make me feel like they will give you the same kind of cuts...... yes I know I'm a girlie chicken!

Posted:In general I'm not really to sure what type of jugging I like.

My favourite style is probably the one that exists inside my head and I would like to see myself do, whether or not it will ever look like what I see in my head is unlikely but a worthy challenge I feel.



With a straight face and no fear of the criticism which it invites I LOVE contact juggling, it's just a shame that is says in the rulebook that real jugglers don't do it. Fortunately my copy of the rulebook misses out the section where it documents the punishment for doing so. I think Hexagonic showed me the pictures in his illustrated copy and it looked pretty grim.



I love watching other people working on their club and ring juggling, but unfortunately I don't really think my brain was designed to be all that interested in doing it myself.



I also love watching seasoned buskers, who's routines lack any "technical" repertoire, yet they are still capable of hypnotising an audience through whatever means available for long enough to convince them to deposit their hard earned cash in the performer's hat. (afterall isn't that what being a performer is all about, or are jugglers performers of some different ilk, privy to some arcane technology which outsiders must never be allowed to understand)



Numbers juggling just baffles me, I've been working on my 5 for the last year and it still doesn't seem to have gone anywhere, I suppose that's my own fault though since I cant stand trying to count/time my runs. Possible because I prefer actually doing it to recording my progress and bragging about it.



But then again, does it actually matter what I think about my own juggling or the juggling of others, when I juggle I juggle for me, it makes me feel good in myself and confident about life; its lovely when other people compliment me on my tricks, but ultimately I didn't learn the tricks for other people, I learnt them for myself; that may seem contrived, flame me all you want, maybe it wasn't true when I started but it is now.

Hell, I may dream of one day standing atop mount Everest surrounded by the finest juggling talent on the planet showing off my 17 in half a hand whilst balancing on a beach ball on the nose of an armadillo, but is it ever actually going to happen? I'd rather stand atop Mount Everest with a bunch of people whom I know and respect and enjoy a rousing trick sharing session, whilst getting the oppertunity to marvel at the complexity which greater minds than I seem capable of innovating <-- (important word, if you don't know what it means look it up)



Have I punctuated all this properly? And does it all fit the specification of the topic of the original post? its not to long is it? Do the posts, which are to long get thrown away? there was nothing in the header about it so I just thought f**k it why not...

I'd hate to think I was just "thinking out loud" on the internet not giving any regard for the feelings and thoughts of other souls attached to this global network electrical impulses, rifling around the world at a pace jugglers of old would have considered magical beyond the realms of conventional wisdom.

Have I proved my point? I guess not... hopefully when we all get together and have a polite discussion about juggling in "the real world" my thoughts will be a little more concise and "on topic", otherwise you might all start thinking that I was some dreadful dirge who simply posted my opinions online with the hope of making myself feel happy about my isolated point of view on an art form which continues invigorate and entice me. Hopfully i won't have alienated any of you against my way of thinking... (insert subtext at your leisure)



Actually f**k all that, my favourite type of juggling is that done by 12 year old kids who've grown up on inner city estates, who only got shown how to do it half an hour before hand and who blatantly never thought they were capable of achieving anything beyond failing their GCSE's and getting a job in the local chicken marinating factory; and who upon being told that they can buy a set of juggling balls, of acceptable quality (maybe not quite good enough to be used in Vegas or on WCWJF but good enough for "real" people) at their local woollies and are astounded that they can continue the learning process at home and continue entertaining themselves and then ,once confident in their ability, show it off to all their friends. Personally that seems like a better trick than any of the tricks i saw on the UFJC.



I still don't know if I've proved my point, perhaps there was no point to be proved it the first place. I hope there isn't otherwise I might start thinking I'd chosen the wrong hobby. The adventure continues...



Remember, "to err is human, to forgive divine" think about it for a while, I'm still not sure what it means. But it seems poignant. For some reason.



(Hehehe, when I ran this through my SPELLCHECKER I found that I'd spelt the word divine as "devine". Hahaha, what an arrogant t**t I must be, you can all have a jolly good laugh at my expense if it so muses you)



See you all soon, have fun "toss" juggling, lol,



Pat x



lol2, i've edited this post since i made a spelling mistake somewhere inbetween the final draft and the act of posting itself, if any of you find any more spelling mistakes or grammatical errors... or indeed any ambiguities or trains of thought which require further elabouration, please feel free to PM me and i'll get on the case straight away.

Posted:ooh, ooh, ooh, QUESTION,... off topic as it is, for some reason i think it relevant..

If juggling was in the Olympics (the reality of which is beyond the scope of the question) what type of juggling would you PERSONALLY feel enraged if it was not included...

I wont add a bunch of radio buttons, principally because i don't actually care about seeing a graph telling how you all think, but also because it would be a bit to shameful an attempt at Highjacking someone elses thread.

(mods feel free to delete/ move this post if anyone complains)

oh, come come, you should know by now that clubs are for quitters, for people who have just given up with learning all those really "technical" juggling "tricks" and want to simulate the challenge of solving all those tasty problems by making their balls spin

just my tupence

(excuse the speech marks i just feel it necessary to point out for pre's sake that 'technical' and 'tricks' are just words and do not actually mean anything tangible or occupy any space in the "real world"; and that they are entirely subjective as per the person viewing them and the person using the words in the first place; when jason garfield tells me that he is a good technical jugglers maybe that is the trick in itself and i am the mug for believing him)
