Count me in with with at least one entry, probably a couple.

Now, I need to think what can I barely do in a couple of minutes without the use of one hand. Spin 30 finger tops? Tie my shoes? Prepare a sandwich and eat it? Climb a tree? Dance a tango with my wife? :-\

Here is an attempt, but I did not quite achieve my goal:

I don't want to break a piece of The Boardwalk top, so I may leave it at that.

 ;D Good idea!

I was wondering during the whole video what was sticking out of your pocket: that was a surprise when you finally took it out!

You got about 2 minutes of spin, like on my video. Was it a Giulia or an Eric top?

I was replying to the last one when you posted the new video.

did you like the news ?

I had a good laugh!
Of course, Miamitop, Ohio, had to be in the spintop police report. I bet I know to which church they were sent for community service. I don't know about the Gladiator seeking an Acrobat for spintop relations and more ...
I was going to point out the news did not mention ITSA but watching it one more time I could read under the glare International Top Spinners Association on that sign.
Hopefully you were reading temperatures in Celsius  . . .

About the new one, from the red hot lighting, you seem to be spinning in hell.  >:D But with so many tops it must be heaven!  ;)
