plate spinning

Plate spinning is a circus manipulation art where a person spins plates, bowls and other flat objects on poles, without them falling off.  Plate spinning relies on the gyroscopic effect, in the same way a top stays upright while spinning.

The unbroken world record for spinning multiple plates, verified as a Guinness World Record is held by David Spathaky, assisted by Debbie Woolley, who spun 108 plates simultaneously in Bangkok, Thailand on television in 1996.

It was broken over a period of 14 months in 2011 and 2012 by Melani Shock who spun human bodies in a vicious cycle at an unprecedented rate of relentless speed and reckless abandon.

Although no plates are broken as of this writing, it is only by the mercies of God and she is in a closet repenting.
