You know you're a stringer when:

 

  • you spend more time stringing than you spend at school.
  • your friends ask you why you have dildos with strings on them.
  • your drawer with glowsticks is more stuffed than your drawer with clothes.
  • every time you have headphones or keychains you cant help but wrap with it.
  • when you see little kids on halloween playing with glowsticks, you think "...newb"
  • you wrap on every pole that you find on street signs, monkey bars, ect.
  • in physics class when you cover centripital force you cant help but think.
  • you've spent more money on sticks than college.
  • pain has brought you to the floor, enough said.
  • your friends purposely dodge driving by the dollar store when with you.
  • whenever you drive somewhere u always think "damn itd be tite to film there."
  • whenever someone says "light sticks" you smack your head.

 

I couldn't think of very many haha...

When you are needing to string, but can't, and you start make hand movements like you're stringing without actually having them.

 

When you try to swing everything you can swing. Like ethernet cables =X

when you worry more about hitting your knuckles than screwing up a stall or catch

 

when you don't think about dropping your glowsticks

This kid was spinning around his keychain once and my first thought was, "His planes are way off - ugh! Is that a side or a wall plane???"

If you still think that glowsticks are cooler than fire..

 

If everytime you see a person spinning something you wonder if they are a stringer or not.

-you've caught yourself wrapping with a shopping bag after buying something

-you still carry your sticks with you even after you've more or less stopped for a period of time

-you've carried dead sticks with you long enough for the hydrogen peroxide to leach through the plastic...and wondered what the hell that smell is

-you habitually cut and round off the hooks off your sticks, even if they're not for you, or you don't intend to string with them. they're just so annoying to leave on!

-you have said cut-and-rounding down to an art

-your store of choice doesn't say anything past hi to you, because they know exactly what you're there for (and trust you on the numbers when there's way more than can be counted visually)

-you learned japanese handle wrapping by accident after wrapping up your sticks so many times (at least, i did)

-if you tangle, unless it's really, really bad, you can untangle it without putting much thought into it and resume spinning

-your first question when seeing someone spinning is "glowstringing or poi?"

-you can spot a gs.c stringer from across the room

-you've stopped traffic spinning near a street that can see you

-you inadvertently create your own circle at a party when all you wanted to do was your own thing, and get bumped out cuz someone tried to battle and you got annoyed

-you've got/gotten rope burn on your limbs and neck

-after thinking it's probably a good idea to wash your strings, the water turns disgustingly grey/black. and requires multiple washings to completely clean off

-you can guess how long someone's been stringing (without seeing any actual moves done) by how fast they're spinning in the wall plane

 

i got more, but i think that's enough for a start :P

I ALWAYS spin my keychain EVERYWHERE I go.

It's been noted as a distinctive feature for people to tell who I am when walking around campus.

The lanyard thing is a killer...at Dish Network they had a remote attached to a lanyard...so you can assume what I did with it...people saw me spinning medium speed and doing a simple stall and I got :w00t: OMFG THAT WAS UBER COOL HOW'D YOU DO THAT...im like damn I made you cream your pants over a stall???!! JESUS

 

Oh and another "when"

 

When you overhear someone talking about a windmill and you go :headscratch:

 

When you hear the phrases "my car stalled" or "im in the bathroom stall" you snicker just a bit

I'm pro at car stalls and bathroom stalls.

 

I like this thread, I can relate to almost everything..

Except the dildos on a string.

That's a little horrifying.

When you do shotguns in class

When your parents ask what moves you've recently gotten down

When your friends know why you're so happy (wallplane wraps!!) (well, most of the time they assume)

When and orbital just makes that 64% on a test go away

 

and @flowrate

HAHA! I so do that.

When im walking sometimes, i'll start a btb weave without my strings, my friends have now accepted it as not freaking ridiculously weird :)
