Fushigi Ball Magic Trick, Illusion or Contact Juggling?

August 2, 2010

Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of commercials for a product called the Fushigi Ball that promises to be a magic gravity ball, but is it for real or is this just a scam?

The fushigi ball, it turns out, is only a ball produced by the ZoomTV productions, the makers of the fine singing Billy Bass. In the video above, you can see how it performs compared to an orange. In practice, it performs worse. This is due in large part to the amount of Vitamin C offered by the orange. Nutritional Facts are not supplied with the fushigi ball, and testing has proven unreliable, but it is safe to say that it is less.

In all honesty,  ZoomTV has seemingly gone out of their way to step on the toes of everybody who has learned and taught others how to Contact Juggle. That’s all it is folks. Contact Juggling. Not a mysterious floating ball. Just hours upon hours upon weeks of practice with a ball. Nothing more.

And the best part? They aren’t even offering that great of a bargain. You could buy a substantially higher quality contact juggling acrylic for the exact same price at Neon Husky with the added benefit that Neon Husky will NOT sell your personal information to competitors or try to call you back and sell you crap you don’t want/need.


A Contact Juggling Story in HD

I have a new Contact Juggling video up and running, A Contact Juggling Story. The video was filmed in 720p using my new Kodak EasyShare M1033 I mentioned in my Digital Camera Buying Guide. The idea was simple, a contact juggling video with a sufficient plot to be enjoyable by jugglers and nonjugglers alike. Also, most CJ videos involve dancing, and I can’t dance. I hope you enjoy the video.

If you would like to see the video in HD, click the link below when it loads click the link that says, “Watch in HD.”

Keep Obscene Material Away from Children

February 8, 2008

Today’s youth are being bombarded with same-sex couples and erotica laced advertisements, but BOOKS are a culprit that have been dodging regulation for decades.I like mine extra-crispy. If your priorities are arranged anything like mine, then you understand the importance of protecting the world’s children from the filth, obscenities and violence depicted throughout the modern media.

Warning: Explicit Content
Although many will complain that video game, music and movie rating systems aren’t doing enough, they will be hard pressed to find any system at all to prevent obscene books from reaching a child’s hands. Thanks to the unregulated nature of the First Amendment, any child has access to information that allows them to sell drugs, or themselves, on the street.

With this money in hand, they can walk into any bookstore and purchase even more mind-filth. As little Bobby or Suzie drops James Joyce or William Faulkner on the counter, the devil behind the counter won’t even go so far as to ask for ID before offering the defenseless child bargains on future pornography.

Public Pornographers
But it gets worse, not only are there no systems in place to prevent a child from purchasing this garbage, there are people who hand out this smut for free. These trash pushers, or libraries, only ask that the child give up their home address. We can only speculate for what reason, but it’s assumed to be for homosexual orgies/communist rallies/Ayn Rand.

While all of this is happening, our government is turning their back on us, with many public schools banning the most important book a child could ever read, the Bible. With the true word of God, as handed down to us by old men over the course of several editions, translations and hundreds of years, being kept away from these kids, how are they ever expected to turn into responsible adults?

Studies Prove It
The truth is they aren’t expected, with more and more research proving beyond the shadow of a doubt that exposure to violent, pornographic material as a youth leads to violent sex offenders. A University of Michigan study proved it. They have professors there, with degrees. In science. Probably.

More studies have shown that books may even be worse than The Internet. With 4.2 million pornographic sites online in the Internet’s 20 year history, we can assume that children have amassed over 273 million pornographic books since the beginning of early literature.

Fight For Your Right to Censor!
Don’t allow these pornographers like Mark Twain and Neil Gaiman to hide behind the constitution any longer, contact your legislators today about warning labels and a tiered rating system to prevent today’s youth from becoming tomorrow’s violent sex offenders!
