#3 was a photograph of an easy way to fill a bucket from a sink using a clean dustpan. This is a fantastic LifeHack idea which has helped me with my fire shows when I have needed to fill my water buckets (a safety measure) quickly without massive spillage! (190 viewings)
#4 Post was this Jay Gilligan TEDTalk – The Evolution of Juggling (162 viewings).

#7 post was the amazing revelation that “A pack of cards has 80658175170943878571660636856403766975289505440883277824000000000000 possible configurations which means every time you shuffle a pack of cards, the chances are, no one will have ever shuffled that configuration before.How do you deal with this kind of knowledge?! Everyday I’m shuffling!” (110 views)
#8 post was a query about the Royal Mail Price Hike which proved very costly to my Jugglingworld online store. Thankfully Royal Mail have in recent months, increased the dimensions of items that can now be sent as “small parcels”, but it did mean that I had to phase out several large and cheap items from my online Jugglingworld store throughout the year!
#9 post was a video clip about Unicycle Nose Hooping (fantastic combo trick)! (100 views)
You can share any video clips of yourselves doing any tricks on the Jugglingworld Facebook page (please do so!)
#10 post was the BBC News Article about the Las Vegas Cirque Du Soleil artiste that died during a performance – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-23126231 . (98 views)
