The Amazing Tippe Top

Yep, its the only object I know that not only turns upside down when you spin it, but reverses the direction of its original spin. Facinating.
Imagine a Planet turning upside down and reversing its direction of spin, without missing a beat.
That would be incredible,...since all that spinning Planet mass, ala kinetic energy, has to come to a halt, and start spinning the other way. Impossible?
Well a Tippe Top does just that.
(Try it with your college ring, make sure the stone starts downward and rises to the top, during its spin)
