Gosh. I wonder if...No no. That's an unseemly thought.I encountered a human gyroscope once. He was a middle-aged man in a crowded bar. Gradually he began to list then fall perfectly sideways. Two of us caught him before his stance was completely irrecoverable and righted him. His nearly full pint had stayed upright throughout. Clearly his wrist was a Hardy-Spicer joint of some type. Never spilled a drop.
'Unseemly thought'? You clearly haven't seen the Ursula Martinez video clip (hint: it's not on Youtube). Hur hur.There was one of your human gyros on 'You've Been Framed' once. A man at a wedding reception walked onto a beer-soaked floor carrying two pints. His feet went from under him and he swivelled his wrists as he went down. He didn't apill a drop either. It was awesome, and something I intend to learn how to emulate.
