    Such a "drops mic" moment there at the end. Are you implying that you could go on indefinitely?

    • United States Ben Christensen

      Certainly not indefinitely. However I think I could best my own time.

    • The Internet Terry Donahue

      Nice run, Ben. Check out the blind juggling section of the Juggle Wiki for more examples and competition: http://juggle.wikia.com/wiki/Blindjuggling#Worldrecords

      The underscore character doesn't show up in these comments, so you have to add one between "blind" and "juggling" in the link above

    It's true this isn't an official world record, it's just a bit of fun. For real world records go to Guinness.

    Blind juggling with 3 balls is a fairly common "games" competition at juggling conventions. A bunch of jugglers start at the same time and the last one juggling wins. Here are a couple examples (I'm unaware of publicly available video evidence for these):

    5 minutes 16 seconds by Joe Showers at the RIT Spring Juggle-in 2010 - http://ritjuggle.blogspot.ca/2010/04/33rd-rit-spring-juggle-in-review.html

    9 Minutes by Pat Squires at the 2001 International Jugglers' Association (IJA) Festival - http://www.juggle.org/history/champs/champs2001.php

    The Guinness record of 6:29 set by Neils Duinker in August 2011 was using 3 clubs, not 3 balls. You can view it on the Guinness website: http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/records-4000/longest-duration-juggling-three-objects-blindfolded/ and there is a picture on Neils website: http://jongleur.nl/update-van-jongleur-niels-duinker-zomer-2011-jongleernieuwsbrief/
