from dictionary.com:
juggle - –verb (used with object)
1. to keep (several objects, as balls, plates, tenpins, or knives) in continuous motion in the air simultaneously by tossing and catching.
2. to hold, catch, carry, or balance precariously; almost drop and then catch hold again: The center fielder juggled the ball but finally made the catch.
3. to alter or manipulate in order to deceive, as by subterfuge or trickery: to juggle the business accounts; to juggle the facts.
4. to manage or alternate the requirements of (two or more tasks, responsibilities, activities, etc.) so as to handle each adequately: to juggle the obligations of job and school.
–verb (used without object)
5. to perform feats of manual or bodily dexterity, as tossing up and keeping in continuous motion a number of balls, plates, knives, etc.
6. to use artifice or trickery.
–noun
7. the act or fact of juggling.

because it's CONTACT juggling, it is a paradox. most of these definitions describe throwing things into the air and catching them to some extent. contact means (again, from dictionary.com):
–noun
1. the act or state of touching; a touching or meeting, as of two things or people.
2. immediate proximity or association.
3. an acquaintance, colleague, or relative through whom a person can gain access to information, favors, influential people, and the like.
4. Electricity. a junction of electric conductors, usually metal, that controls current flow, often completing or interrupting a circuit.
5. Geology. the interface, generally a planar surface, between strata that differ in lithology or age.
6. Medicine/Medical. a person who has lately been exposed to an infected person.
7. Sociology. a condition in which two or more individuals or groups are placed in communication with each other. Compare categoric contact, primary contact, secondary contact, sympathetic contact.
8. contact lens.
–verb (used with object)
9. to put or bring into contact.
10. to communicate with: We'll contact you by mail or telephone.
–verb (used without object)
11. to enter into or be in contact.
–adjective
12. involving or produced by touching or proximity: contact allergy.

so i'm right

but yeah, i do like saying the word paradox. it's so...awesome...

here's a better one:
contact juggling is..................a fucking awesome way for a baseball pitcher to psyche out a batter

Contact juggling is loosing contact with the world (or just shrinking the world down to the size of al ball )

(or as a street performer once told me, while giving me tips on palmspinning "Contact juggling is better than masturbation - and if you switch hands, it nearly feels like someone else is doing it" :p )
