Posted:ok so have you ever had those moments when something completely unrelated to spinning happens and it makes you think of something to do with whatever toys you play with?

like...

i was smoking in my back yard and i was spacing out looking at one of those little plastic things that twirl around when the wind blows on them, except this one had two fans on it that go in opposite directions, and the first thing that popped into my head was butterfly antispin flowers lol

Posted:oh i know, i'm sure you searched well, it was buried pretty far. i just thought you'd enjoy the other threads too.

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.

Posted:Old thread, but I had a Way Too Much Poi moment the other day... I was driving from the grocery store, and contemplating weird anti-spin goodness, and how directions of rotation interact... Whilst thinking of these things, and how awesome they are, I used the wrong signal for a turn... twice! Signaled left and went right... Apparently my subconscious driver was listening in on my subconscious poi'ster and taking notes. Unfortunately turn signals aren't nearly as sweet when they go the opposite way! biggrin

Posted:Lol. Mucky! I pick out compound circles in tesselations and all that kind of thing, my friend did me a drawing with lots of squiggly patterns.. "Oh, theres antispin in it, thanks!"

I've actually tried to follow the lines of her drawing with my poi before, it involves stalls and pendulums, antispin... its good fun.

Windows media player is my music player of choice.. not because its good, but because some of the visuals are compound circles... My girlfriend pointed it out once and I was pleased indeed. ^_^ The infection is occurring. Muahahahah!

Once my friend's phone started playing "We Will Rock You" and I smacked her when she answered it because I couldn't finish figuring out moves before she answered.

Well, my friends make a lot of ball jokes about my poi, other than that when walking the dogs we use rope leashes that I can subconsciously start trying to do 3 beat weave with
