I was just w1ndring. Cause I need to know. I have a bowling ball at home but it seems too big and heavy. I almost broked my toe and my cat with it. SOo I don't think CJ is for me. If I can't juggle something like that, right?

My mom says I have to fix the holes in the floor now. WHich means I won't be able to afford a real ball for a while. Can anyone send me one? For free I mean?
Anyway I tried a few moves and I didn't get them at all in the like five minutes I tried. I must be really bad at this.

I think Micheal Moschen's "Light" is the best ever and we should all probably quit trying now that its out....


OK OK OK I have to stop. Its too much even for me to take and I"m spouting this crap out
*Runs and Hides from the Curmudgeon Ed now that he has poked him with a stick*

PS did I leave anythign out? hehe

Start out with some lacrosse balls. they are amazing. Or you can wad up some tin foil into a ball, that not only works really good, but its shiny! If you have no options whatsoever, practice with babies. The oblong shape and flailing appendages will mean its hard when your learning, but when you advance to an acrylic, you'll be really good.

Wow, thank you for posting this!1!1111 I was looking for a ball post, but as hard as I tried I couldn't find any questions about balls. I was about to ask if an acrylic is supposed to hurt when you catch it with your head. I think I am doing it right, but the Dr. says I shouldn't go to sleep with a concussion. I guess that means more practice time! YAY!

To straight guys and prudish women, maybe.

And that's enough of that.

...Although I laughed, and thought of suggesting a butterball.
they're sooo sticky - almost feels like its impossible to drop.

Good find Ed, I always forget to check by the cock flavoured lollipops, to be honest they've been gathering dust since I bought them.

No, but think about it. If they wanted the flavor to be accurate the testing would go something like this...

"Hmm... it tastes a bit off... Johnson, pull out your johnson so I can compare the flavors."
