    Fantastic! Thanks for the link. I used to do some (minor) yo-yoing back in the day. I love seeing that kind of stuff. I'm amazed at how they throw down those multiple yo-yo string tricks.

    Amazing... I am fascinated by this stuff. I recently got a yo-yo in a conntest at work. probably the cheap kind, but all I can do is (sometimes) make it come back to my hand. I would LOVE to learn about this stuff, but haven't found anything on the internet yet. Dave F, please let me know if you know of any yo-yo resources, I would like ot pretend to try!! [​IMG]

    What posesses someone to say to themselves: "You know what, I think that I should dedicate a lot of time to amature yo-yo"?

    That was bad ass. I don't know how they can get to be so good at yo-yo with all the chicks they must be banging everyday. If I could do even one of those tricks, I would be so cool.[​IMG]

    my brother is really good at the yoyo
    not that good, but good enough that he'd impress you if you saw him. It's funny, he's actually quite proud of his yoyo talent. anyone that's seen him has always said somethign along the lines of...wow he's really good, but i don't know if i'd be as proud about it as he is [​IMG]

    i'll have to show him that video though.

    oh and just for the record he got good while procrastinating during school.

    kyle how do you find out the location of the video file like that?
    i've often wanted to do that on other sites.

    Mark,

    On that type of embedding, you can just go to the "view --> source" menu in Internet Explorer, and search for wmv. You can also right click on the video and choose properties. At the top you'll see the name of the file, and below you'll see the location. Just tack the file name onto the location.
