Posted:For a little bit of backstory: I grabbed my Uke and started spinning it around like a staff and then dropped it - snapping the neck. Now I guess it has some kind of permanent damage.

Has anyone else spun inanimate objects only to have them break? I'd be happy to be not the only idiot here tongue2

But it's fun while it lasts...

Posted:I've done a couple of shopping bags before, and a plank of wood, wasn't the best ratio of success, as in none. Anyone actually light something on fire that wasn't ment to be lit?
