    awesome! so, which one of those extra talents in this video will be your next record. Balancing a juggling club on nose and a pole on forehead; Most balls juggled while balancing a spoon on nose; or the Most catches juggling clubs behind the back... and I'm sure you got more up your sleeve.

    Amazing! Glad to see this again here, but I watched this video at least 10 times now!

    Absolutely mental! I love how you push the limits of so many aspects of manipulation.

    Hi Dan. Thanks. I don't want to make the rules too specific. I just want it to be clear that both balances must be dynamic rather than static. This means that they both require constant correction. You wouldn't be able to balance either of them on a flat surface so that they balance by themselves for example. I don't think the recordsetter balancing criteria make this distinction. In the past other people have cheated with this trick by using a pedestal which has a wide base to support itself. There doesn't need to be a minimum pole length because the shorter they are the harder it gets. Maybe there could be a limit of 2cm diameter contact at the base of the balance if it makes the rules easier.

    Love the Go Pro angle. Peter, is there a minimum pole length? Any rules pertaining to pole width?
