20 Holding one ball in one hand, none in the other. (You wouldn't have complained had it turned out our notation didn't encompass this case!) 31 The 2-ball shower. 42 Two in one hand, holding one in the other. 423 The "half-shower-box"? One ball hops back and forth (the 3), while another one on each side just hops up and down. 441 A great pattern, still not known as well as it deserves to be. It is sometimes done as a club trick, with the handoff (the 1) done behind the back. 4413 Discussed above. 4440 3 out of a 4-fountain. 51 The 3-shower. 501 My proudest invention. Two balls, each going 1,5,1,5 as if they were in a 3-shower, except in opposite directions. Start it with both in the same hand. Very useful for bringing people up to 5-speed (but not accuracy). (I lay claim to the invention of this one only because the people I knew searching for patterns by computer forbade 0s.) 52512 The baby-juggling pattern. Two balls doing 5s, the baby going 1,2,2, 1,2,2,1,2,2 forever. 53 The 4-ball half-shower. 531 A somewhat tricky three ball pattern, filling in the hole in 501. 5313 An asymmetric version of the above. 55500 The "flash", 3 out of 5. 50505 The "snake", 3 out of 5. 5551 A sneaky 4-ball pattern, where one hand doesn't know it isn't doing 5. 55514 A much prettier pattern, where three of the balls are always doing 5's, and the other one is sneaking underneath going 1,4,1,4 forever. 450 A very goofy 3-ball pattern; "A complete waste of a 5-ball juggler." 453 A very pretty 4-ball pattern, particularly with the 4's outside. 55550 The active way to do 4 out of 5. 552 The lazy way to do 4 out of 5. 633 61616 642 6424 66661 56414 645 661515 71 771 777171 723 7272712 723 75751 7562 7161616 70701 7531 741 714 7571 67561 17170170 801(4x,2x) the synchronous 3-ball shower (6x,2x) the synchronous 4-ball shower (6,6)(6,2) The easy synchronous 3-in-one-hand, 2-in-the-other (6,4) The much harder one (8,2x)(4,2x)(2x,8)(2x,4) Dan Bennett's amazing 4-ball box (6x,2x)(2x,6x) A much easier kind of 4-ball box (4x,2x)(4,2x)(2x,4x)(2x,4) the "double box" (6x,2)(6,2x)(2,6x)(2x,6) a really nice pattern - check it out! (6,2x)(6,2x)(2x,6)(2x,6) kind of a synchronous 61616 but with only two 6's on each side.24[45] rather difficult, as the 4 tends to collide with the pattern. 25[65]2 a bit easier 25[75]51 a very fun variant of 75751 ...717171 21[75]1 717171... the multiplex in the middle of showering 4And for my last trick, a synchronous multiplex!
