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.

As hard as I find that to believe, it continues to happen, time and again....

A couple kids on the track team were passing time at a meet (after they were already done and waiting for others to finish) and I noticed they were whirling string around with a keychain ring on the end.  They were trying a number of different moves with it and 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.  I made a couple to show them and also for the kids at church.  Nobody under the age of 35 seems to know anything about these games whirlygigs.  I am going to make some more and keep investigating.  It also seems like this could be a good gateway activity to get them spinning tops.

Has anyone else encountered any of this same spinning ignorance?

Today I succesfully made more than 20 repetitions (48 in the best tryal) of a way of regenerate not known (at least, here). About this new string is a long story, I'll tell later. we can say, maybe it can not to be "new". But Nobody was there by me to teach me how to, I had to do it by myself and was not so easy. Like 12 years ago I knew something not so clear, and then it remained there in my mind, waiting for the right time to be achieved.
And I can say is the more, more difficult to do of all the ones I can do.

The last one I had invented before today's, was around 2012, 2013. ta0 was the only one who has seen this one, during one night there in Orlando´s hotel. These last two are really hard to do. It´s strange. Every "string"  I get to do, is harder and harder, giving the minimum of impulse of the spinning, and this is the main reason they are hard and difficult. This last achievement was gotten today. I still want to be Rege Cordarum. Not so easy I am going to leave my tittle. ;D >:D.
I hope to have some time in future, to show not only these last two, but all of them, into a new of serie of videos, that, will called, precisly, Rege Cordarum.
greetings!!!

What!!!  No around the world in that small apartment?  No behind the back?  None of your around the body full horizontal looping?  Ha ha!!!  Actually, good job in that small space.  But I think I recognize a certain panic in ta0's movement when Jim's handling of figaro starts to lean toward the window!!!

I think I will watch it another dozen times to enjoy the humor.

Throwing Figaro so close the the glass gives the video an element of suspense that I don't experience while watching top videos. Knowing Tao's skill level made me pretty confident that the glass would be OK. I like the idea of using the bottom of a beer can as a playing surface. Thank you for sharing.

Ha! That corner of Erwin's apartment was one of the smallest places where I have thrown Figaro (and with the large glass door pretty scary)!  :o
We were all tired, but you did a good job with the beer can.  ;)
It was great to see Lapin again and to meet Erwin. A good way to say goodbye to Paris.
