it's such a lucrative occupational future. :D
also, the Japanese have no respect of ugly stuffed animals with glass balls in their mouth.

Not racist. In fact, the Japanese are pretty freaking awesome. They just have no respect for various exploits.

He's pretty good with his fingers. And his balls.

It wouldn't be as cool if it were opaque though.

I thought they looked cool in the comercail but this just takes the fun out of it for me~! though i can do that with a real ball and make it look like its levitateing. its a series of unconcious twitching i tought myself only barely visible if you focus on where my hands are.

I think this is just fantasic! Another skill I want to learn. And I think the guy does really well presenting the juggling. His facial expression are great.

Dude. Contact Juggling . . . is amazing.
PLEASE, PLEASE tell me that you people have seen Labyrinth. Remember when Jareth is playing with his magic balls? Yeah. That's contact juggling, and that movie is the main inspiration for people learning it . . .

Oh yeah, I've seen those before. They're those "gravity-defying balls" that you hold and turn while holding it.
