It looks similar to musical chairs. I think it should be fun to do.

I am not sure if this will show up or not but it is from a slideshow about the Titanic.  The picture is of the boy using his whip top on the ship's deck but the caption says he is playing shuffleboard!!!

That's just a not very good slideshow. It does not mention the story of the boy, which we know.

salut la compagnie  8)

we were moved because they want us there for the big finish.......

absolutely! Saturday is a much better spot after the 1A and 4A finals (I trust José and Jorge will encourage Quentin  ;)

3 weeks to go : training time and gyroscopic meditation recommended for all contestants!

ps more seriously : once we 'll have our independence, we won't have to face such changes anymore

I remember I made a tip for the yo-yo jam. It came out good - but I will never do that again. I just put the top away for my Grandson. At this time I am working on the stain job for the flower pot. This has been to much labor. I’m looking forward to throwing tops again.

I am still surprised at the time change for the spintop finals.  Hope people like vegabomb can work things out.

Do you think this means we were moved because they want us there for the big finish.........or are they just putting us there as a fill-in during dinner time?

Well I finally got around to ordering a delrin rod. I made this replacement tip for my Acrobat. (The original broken one is on the table) So far so good!

It seems that if we order Wednesday we can still get the T-shirts in time.
So you have until late Tuesday if you want to pre-order.

I didn't know the Explorer I story. You would think that NASA's "rocket scientists" would have known better. That shows that rotational dynamics can be counter-intuitive.

Maybe they had an excuse. Examples of dissipation-induced instability turn out to be all around us, especially in nature. But the concept gained wide appreciation only in the 1990s -- just one of the many cool new insights to come out of the ongoing renaissance in classical mechanics.
