Interesting. I also find that juggling is good for relaxing hands/wrists/shoulders between gaming, and helps develop a good left-hand/right-hand balance.

(this is a zero double-entendre thread, btw :))

Nice. I'd also advise washing any bed-linen or mattresses you buy from car boot sales. And avoid any that have suspiciously coloured patterning.



Emm I dont think I'd buy second hand bedsheets etc I don't even like 2nd hand books really if you can't dunk it
in bleach, 2nd hand is out for me but maybe thats just my OCD streak showing. :(

I could do more juggling, hadn't thought of the therapeutical value of it, I do some 3 ball stuff with my daughter sometimes, did get up to doing 4 balls (shower / 2 in each hand, never could master cascade with 4 balls), and even was doing a five ball shower at one point :woot: .
Juggling is great fun, but I think I stopped when I had back problems, juggling was fine, but picking up the balls when I dropped them became awkward! :stars:

Note that I also switch the primary and secondary buttons within Windows, to maintain symmetry (and annoy anyone who tries to use my computer!)

So I use my right hand on the keypad exclusively, to move and switchweapon, as below.

/=Translocate/TossRelic, *=Rocket/AVRiL, -=Impact/Shield
7=Shock,8=Forward,9=Mini,+=Flak
4=Left, 5=Back, 6=Right
1=Crouch, 2=SuperWeapon, 3=Bio, Enter=Link
0=Jump, .=Sniper/Lightning

It's not too bad, but I can tell other players' key combinations allow them to double jump constantly, whereas I struggle because using a thumb independently of the fingers is still quite difficult.


quite interesting setup might change the jump to -> or <- even to have a bit more thumb space ( as i am playing on a laptop)
and switch lighting with superweapon. will test it tonight because i need to work right now. :(

I was like that until I got my Xbox. Then it was either £10-£20 for a 2/3 year old game, or £3 on ebay. So I took the splash and tried the second hand route.

Most are ok - like new. Some though...jeezo...how do discs get that badly scratched?

Whatever though, I still get shivers when I have to touch those 2nd-handers.....even after cleaning the boxes.

Good point - the right hand thumb and fingers fall more naturally onto the five "-> 4 8 6 Enter"...so I might give that a try.

Respect to the five-ball - I could never quite manage that reliably. Juggling also gives my hands & brain something to do while watching something semi-boring on telly.
