    I was just at the safety judges certification class in Atlanta. Les Stella asked that we not refer to any stunts / pyramids as "drop of death" or "suicide" or anything that could be used negatively by media or people trying to bash our sport. Just thought I'd pass this along because I agree. Let's still with names like egg roll and waterfall. :eek:)

    King calls it a birdle (which makes me gag)

    I have always called it a yo-yo variation (because it's a two legged variation of a yo-yo....)
