    yeah.
    at one point i was able to do a bunch in a row.
    But I haven't done it in a long time, so I'd probably fall on my head.
    I'm hoping yoga will strengthen me up to do them again.

    I can do about 4 back handsprings in a row before I lose momentum, or hit a wall. I can also do a roundoff back handspring back tuck. It took me 6 years and endless practicing on a trampoline, but it's worth it firstly because they're just fun to do, secondly because I can do something alot of people can't do.

    I bought a tumbling barrel and will sometimes just sit in my room rolling backwards over it when I'm bored.

    Yay for a combination of cheerleading, gymnastics, swimming, and boredom.

    nah, the coolest thing i can do is go into a bridge and then get back up again gracefully. i want to work up to being able to do the splits again...
