    Hello John if you submit a video you created you can't watch it because it's new. If you break a record that has been done before it is up right away in the pending file. Thanks John I just celebrated my 1500 current record yesterday. I have done over 1800 records on this site

    Sweet ya, i am still improving on juggling 4 basketballs....I just posted the video of me juggling, 4 basketballs for the longest time, but i will probably have to make another one to keep it soon. I will try the stride challenge. I know i can set, break and make a lot of records. I just haven't recorded them to post them on my profile. But i will start to post a lot of videos soon.

    Thanks a lot Brian! I appreciate it! Your Amazing man, I love your competitiveness! And They way you balance objects like tables and stuff on your face, amazes me! I want to work on that skill, so far i can just balance a basketball on my face, and the video where you juggle apples and take bites out of them is the best! If anything you have to worry about me going after the basketball records! but i am learning new skills like handstands. I am looking forward to competing with you man! But my respects to you, it's nice to find people just as competitive as me.

    maybe a stiletto or steak knife could be used instead of a pen for another category. I've been checking out your youtube videos. very nice John.

    When records are so close like this (within a second) like the diabolo high toss, it's more accurate to time it by the video frame (as long as they video speed has not been tampered with. Because the very moment the attempt starts to the moment it ends can be determined much more precisely than with a stopwatch. Even so, the accuracy can only really be determined to 0.04 of a second (25 frames per second video) or 0.033 (30 frames per second) (ie. 1 second divided by 25 frames = 0.04 seconds per frame).
