    fast tea cups video..we OWN you all..haha!!

    Yeah, so my friends and I from a while back used to really go crazy on the teacups despite the park making them lag more recently. We broke it down to a science on how to make them go fast and we can calculate how much faster we go than everybody else.

    On average most people take b/w 3-5 seconds to complete one revolution. Even the 2 seconders look pretty quick. Now when you watch our video my buddy and I manage to get our cups spinning at HALF a second per revolution..we spun so fast we would put a water bottle on the side of the cup and it would STICK to the side cuz we were going so fast.

    Throughout the video my friend's gf was videotaping and she was talking to an old couple and they were all laughing at us...and you can hear me say OH CRAP!! real loud at one point. so have a looksey in my profile and enjoy! and can someone tell me how to upload the actual video onto THIS website for those who don't have myspace? Thanks!! sorry for the long post...

    Here's the Url: to my profile AND teacup video..so enjoy!!

    All about technique people..most people try to spin using very small motions when spinning the wheel..like they just one section of the wheel and slowly turn it...my friend and i use team work...first we start off with small motions as mentioned before as the ride is warming up...then once we're rolling i'll grab one end of the wheel and just do one big turn then my friend does the same thing and we go back and forth and voila!! hyperspace!! give a try sometime!

    Bring it on!! i'll school you like nothing..the video quality is poor so it may not look that fast but if you count how long it takes for a revolution..it's FAST compared to everyone else..just go to the park and see how long it takes for most people to do it..remember..3-5 seconds per revolution on average.. us? b/w 0.5 to ONE second..FACE!!!!! haha

    Now there's an intriguing idea for a future MiceChat meet.

    The Great Teacup Spin Challenge!

    Contestants enter their cups. Stationed on the sidelines are observers for each competing cup. The contestants spin. The observers count the total revolutions achieved during the ride.

    The winners get a nice prize.

    Shall we do this?

    I just lock eyes with whoever I'm in the teacup with and we just focus on spinning the wheel. Within the first ten seconds of revolutions we come up with a system of hand placements that work.
    And I am sad to say that while squeezing as many people as you can into a cup is fun, it doesn't help the spinning. *sigh*

    Wow! That's pretty fast!
    I'm impressed!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    I beg your pardon... you what? You own us?

    I'm sure we "old" folk can see you and your little friends totally pwned.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...
