I just realized something. On my video the frame rate is fast enough that you can tell in which direction the top is spinning what is a give away of the reversal of time (as if the water spraying backwards wasn't enough  ::) ). So I wondered if in Sabaspin's video there was a give away. An sure enough, when he comes out of the water the top is precessing clockwise while for a right handed person it should be precessing counter-clockwise! Mm, that may be the reason why he kept the hold of the string on his left hand, to try to makes us think he is a lefty!  :P

Hahahaa!!  :D Ta0, my plotting didn't go that far, just luck.
 There is also another clue in a slight motion I do walking out of the pool. See if you can spot it.  ;)
