What pills do you have to take to do stuff like this? It isn’t all they did. Amongst other things they juggled with six burning torches. I tried to take photos of that bit too, but heads got in the way.

More gems from the TYO. He dislikes tickly labels in clothes and was having trouble with something in his T-shirt. His mum asked what he was doing. ‘I’m just unitching myself,’ he said.
And another: He had made an unidentifiable construction out of Lego. I asked him what it was. It turned out to be his magic go-away machine. Brilliant, I thought – the times in my life when I could have done with one of those! Turns out he meant some kind of teleporter, not what I was thinking at all…
