Hey Pit!

So today I was rifling through my storage containers underneath my bed looking for something important. Whilst I was looking for the important thing I came across something very dear to my heart....My old yo-yo (see image below)


This yo-yo has kept me entertained for the past two hours, which is longer than any video game has done in the past few weeks.

Do any of you guys still have your yo-yo's from past years? Did you master any tricks (walking the dog, round the world etc...)?

I say bring the yo-yo back into fashion! It has to be the coolest invention ever, in my opinion.

Not really the coolest invention, as it was originally developed as a weapon.

Yes, because weapons are just so cool aren't they.

Well I find them fascinating actually. Not that I have to explain myself to you in the first place.

And man, I'll support the comeback of the yo-yo 100%.

I've been reading into the yo-yo originally being used as a weapon, as Rabid Guitarist said it was and I have discovered that those allegations are totally untrue, according to the Prime Minister of the Philippines, where the yo-yo's were said to be used as weapons.

And at the above post.

I used to be into yoyos, but I killed my wrist doing it for hours and hours a day.

Yo-Yo Ma and weapon discussion aside, I used to love yo-yo's. kinda lost interest after i couldn't do that trick where you use both hands and make a swing of sorts.

"Sir, I exist!"
"However," replied the universe,
"The fact has not created in me
A sense of obligation."

WRONG.

The only reason it exists is because drugs get people fucked up, and people love getting fucked up.

yeah i got a yomega raider, black n blue. It's fun, i don't see why it would be looked upon as uncool or geeky. . . Where has this social stigma come from?!?!?
Honestly. Wtf?
