Diabolo


Think devil sticks and hacky sacks, with a little less hippy, or a little more geek. The Diabolo is now my new favorite pasttime... to watch. I suck at it, but on a recent canoeing adventure with a group of 14-year-olds, I saw this instrument of leisure fully come to life. Want to earn street cred with some middle schoolers? Master the Inverted Spider-Web McTwistical. Or something like that. Seriously. It's amazing. And with no job, tons of free time, and the focus and attention span of a praying lion, you too can master the Diabolo.

Check this video for all the proper moves:



Now I know what some of my former English students were doing when they weren't doing their homework... Everything else just seems so lame.
