    Anyone play hacky sack? Keep a footbag in their pocket? Honestly I never leave home without 'em. Every break we get at band practice for school is spent kicking one of these in a circle, and EVERYONE joins in. Great bonding for everyone from freshmen to seniors. Does anyone else hack?

    May I ask about your sack? Knit or leather?
     
  5. I used to play "Hacky-Sack" when I lived in the UK (20+ years ago), but I haven't played for years… Do you still say "hacky-in" or "hacky-out" when joining or leaving the circle?

  7. i hacky like there is no tomarrow. knit is my favorite, has some good weight, very flexible, unlike that leather crap. mine right now is one of them pac-man guys. its super cool!

    it looks like
    :meh:
    only with its mouth open and on a black screen

    (for those who didn't know who pac-man was)

    Everyone I didn't like in high school used to Hack...so I was pretty critical of it. I got into frisbee for a while before getting wrecked in an accident and needing surgery (which sounds really dramatic, but in reality it wasn't that bad). Now I mostly swim and do yoga. I was never much a fan of team sports, I always liked stuff I could do on my own.

    I have one in my pocket right now. I'm not very good, you see I rarely "masturbate" (that is, play solitare hack). I just play socially.

    Used to, but no more. What seems to be the frisbee obsession here?

    I love frisbee, ultimate, frisbee golf, freestyle...it's all great.

    over the summer I perfected the frisbee twirling skills, I can do both hands(all digits) back and forward, transfer between hands you name it....yes...too much time.
