String Wizard: The 2017 World Yoyo Champion's Winning Routine

August 18, 2017

This is a video of 2017 World Yoyo Champion Shu Takada's winning routine. It is most impressive. Yoyos can actually come back to you?! That's news to me. "You're an idiot." That is not news to me. Half the tricks this guy performs border on sorcery, and I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to learn he's wearing an Amulet Of Return around his neck. "What the hell are you talking about?" Tsk tsk -- sounds like somebody's been skipping their magic artifact class this semester. I'm telling Professor Snape. "Snape's dead." I'm only on book three!

Keep going for the full video.

    Holy friggin' that asian was awesome! Also, I watched a second time at 0.75 speed, it helps. XD

    Why do women have a separate division in the International Yo-Yo Competition? Is there something that makes one gender particularly advantaged over the other when it comes to yo-yoing?

  • Bling Nye

    Institutionalized patriarchal sexism dating back to at least the ancient Greeks when athletes had to compete in the nude to assure no woman could compete (and possibly beat a male), which has subsequently engendered a sociological norm in which sexes are still segregated in all "athletic" competitions simply "becuz wimmins."

    That, or, I dunno, demtiddies be gettin' in th' way, yo.

  • Irina Abramovich

    If a woman tried to compete in a Yo-Yo competition against a man I would totally throw up. Everyone knows that men are strong and hold all the intelligence while woman are weak, insecure, and spend their lifetimes worrying about gaining weight from child birth.=)

    Hubree: You're a tiny perfect kitten athlete!!=)=)=)
    Irina: I would totally beat you at yo-yo-ing with two yo-yo's swinging under my armpit.=)

  • Irina Abramovich

    Men also have a more well-developed sense of humor while, on the other hand, women like men who make them laugh.=) Proven science.

    <3 Thomas

    Hubree: You can always make me laugh!!=)=)=)
    Irina: Your jokes about racism are classic!

  • Irina Abramovich

    Aw!=) Look at the tiny kittens meowing and jumping.

    I heard afterooster's wife is so fat she once tried to go tubing at the water park and got stuck inside the water slide!=)

    <3 Thomas

    Hubree: You're a little kitten King!=)=)=)
    Irina: You look hot in dresses all summer long!=)

  • FearlessFarris

    "demtiddies be gettin' in th' way, yo."

    Hmm. Do you have a link to any videos of said large-breasted Asian women doing yo-yo tricks? You know, so I can, um, better understand their plight.

  • Humans are awesome creatures.

  • FearlessFarris

    Asians are awesome creatures.

  • FearlessFarris

    At least it's racist in a complementary way.

    TheQiwiMan,

    Here I am logging into my other account, under a disguised name, to write about how fat afterooster's wife is:

    I heard afterooster's wife is so fat she once tried to bounce a basketball but instead her knees went out because she had been standing for too long -- 30 seconds, and she had to be rushed to the ER for severe swelling of the ankles. If she ate 100,000 calories less every day, she could be able to go to restaurants without ordering everything on the menu.=)

    <3 Thomas

    Hubree: I love you, #1 L33T kitten!!=)=)=)
    Irina: Happy TGIF!!!

  • Mark

    wow!
