Behind the back blind (also called blind behind the back or just BBB) is a trick where all the throws and catches are done behind the back. By letting the balls touch your back while they're in the air, you can tell where they are without being able to see them.
If during a pinball juggling attempt, a ball lands on top of another ball that is held in the hand, so that the ball has clearly stopped rolling down the arm before the other ball is thrown, that will be considered collecting, and thus only allowed at the end of a run.
