Glad you printed the top. Have fun.
Just checked out the photo. Looks like a good print. A few little voids but the shoulder looks good. What material did you use?

PLA. It's my friend's printer. I'll ask him to make it into abs at some point.

Looking forward to watching it!

It's great to see Huitzi and Jack posting on the same thread!

If you pay attention, you can see Figaro swinging in front of a computer and monitor on the left. Just beyond there, there were professional video editing equipment! I don't know how they trust me enough to throw Figaro there!  ???

But I think I recognize a certain panic in ta0's movement when Jim's handling of figaro starts to lean toward the window!!!
That's very true! But you can also see Jim's smirk saying: "Of course I can handle this!"  ;D

Rumour has it that 2% of the 82% have already mutated into phosphorescent rats
can your confirm this assertion?

Yes, and the remaining Reptilians now face a moral dilemma, as they've always viewed the existing rats in the DIA underground as tasty little hors d'oeuvres. To avoid eating their cousins the mutants, they now carry blacklight flashlights ($12 on Amazon). No glow means snack time!

...I pointed out that there is a fun activity with string and a large button in the middle and you get it spinning back and forth.  They did not seem to know what I was talking about.

In his book on tops, I think D.H. Gould calls those gizmos "buzzers" -- or something like that. He cites a long history across many cultures.

Many of the people from the general public who encounter us spinning tops at our juggling club are completely unaware that such things exist.  They routinely ask us what the tops are, and show no signs they've ever seen one before.

I see the same phenomenon when I display my tops at LEGO shows. But I find it quite age-dependent.

Visitors in the over-60 set know all about tops, are delighted to come across my finger tops, and have no trouble twirling the ones I put out for the public to try. For them, it's like coming across long-lost friends. But on average, knowledge of and ability to twirl tops seem to decay rapidly as age decreases from there.

Many kids under 10 have no idea what a top is but are delighted to discover them. The parents, meanwhile, often have their noses buried in their cell phones and couldn't care less.

Same goes for the other LEGO spintoys I put on display.
