The good news is that I did not get blood on my top.

Well really no blood was spilled, but the pain is real.  While trying to learn how to unwrap the string in order to link to another trick I was doing corkscrews over and over well past sun set.  I have a nice swollen spot over my left eye.  Perhaps this is less glamorous than a football injury.

btw i find it best to unwrap by pulling off 2 wraps at a time, that way theres still enough spin to start regens before it dies  ;)

Much better thank you.  It only took a few days for the swelling to fade.
New Rule: Do not do a corkscrew if it is too dark to see the top.

Good rule!  If you cannot see the top, do not do.......(name the trick).

Of course, if the top lights up then that is a whole different ball game.
