Juggling is a fun pastime, a swell party trick and a way to prove to potential love interests that you are good with your hands. If you’ve never attempted to juggle before — or if you’ve tried and given up in frustration — the whole thing can seem a bit tricky. But if you start with three balls and take it slowly, you’ll quickly get the hang of it and be able to add tricks, juggle more balls and do it all while dressed like a monkey.
The easiest way to start is by learning the three-ball cascade technique. Grab a trio of juggling balls, oranges or anything else small and spherical, and watch this lesson from Barry John, aka professionaljuggler.

This past week Radio Station K-Rock 89.3 in New Minas, Nova Scotia completed their 3rd Annual World Record Week lead by DJ, Mel Sampson. The results included the breaking of two records that were originally set on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, frozen waffles, cardboard towers, and more. Read on for a glimpse into the life of a Canadian radio DJ; and one of our favorite record setters.
Originally set by Isla Fisher on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Mel showed no fear as her hands became icy from holding 73 frozen waffles. It’s safe to say the office enjoyed this one…those waffles didn’t go to waste.
This was more than just “can I get fries with that.” Mel was able to befriend this friendly drive-thru associate and asked almost 100 questions. The result of which is a pretty hilarious and strange conversation.
