And I've gone SUPER overboard on buying yo-yos...

Hell yeah brother! Beautiful stuff!

Re: What are your hobbies?

haha the thing is...is the stuff I'm working on in today's yoyo world is all pretty simple stuff. Some of the stuff people are capable of with yo-yos these days is mind bending.
It's like the stuff I'm doing might be impressive to those who have no idea what modern yoing is all about...but to those who are in the hobby, it's really nothing impressive at all.

Re: What are your hobbies?

Hobbies?
Entomology (I used to catch butterflies, now I just snap them).


That leads into environmentalist (you cant have these lovely creatures without an environment).

Then musician (Ive not done that much later)
and "observer of Mind"- the faculty that observes and participates in all this.

Interesting hobbies. What do you do in your "environmentalist" hobby? I've been wanting to do some volunteer work but I frankly get bored easily so have already quit doing what I last volunteered to do. Looking for something new and with global warming being such a serious problem, that would be an area I'd like to so something in. Although I'll have to say, I feel like we are beyond the point of no return already so no matter what we do, if we don't find a way to take CO2 out of the air in a practical way, we are screwed (though I guess our other efforts can buy us more time).

Re: What are your hobbies?

Impressive yo-yoing psycho! I thought of you a couple days ago. I was playing poker at a table with about 5 other people in virtual reality. That game has toys you can play with at the same time as when you are sitting at the table playing poker.

One toy was a yo-yo and when I saw it, I immediately thought of you. So, I picked up the virtual yo-yo and tried to do a trick with it. Failed.

That said, the biggest trick you can do with a yo-yo right now in that VR game is just roll it down, let it sit there spinning at the bottom for a while until you pull it back up (so probably not considered a trick at all). The tech just isn't there yet. It feels really realistic to roll the yo-yo up in down in VR (to me anyway, to you probably not) but the intricate figure moves you have to do with other tricks from what I see in your video, can't be done with the current controllers we have.

Maybe someday we'll all see each other in VR (I think it'll become as widespread as the internet someday) and you can teach us all how to yo-yo properly. As you can see I'm still very passionate about my VR hobby.
