April 5, 2009: Big Ball in NZ

Big ball in New Zealand. The worlds biggest in fact, and has held the record since 2005.
Well maybe not the biggest ball, but the biggest tape ball according to Guinness.



Quote:
Two young Kiwis have put New Zealand on the world map by gaining a Guinness World Record for the world's largest tape ball.

The record tape ball weighs a staggering 53kgs (116.6 lbs) and has a circumference of more than 2.5 metres (8.2 feet).

Alexis Fletcher and Ben Naylor, both Massey University students, have spent the last two months trying to beat the record
previously held by an American whose tape ball weighed only 45.65kg (100.4 lbs) - about seven kilograms lighter than the New Zealand tape ball.
See, right there is why America is in trouble.

These College kids from New Zealand spent two months of their spare time building this World record, accolade and kudo garnering tape ball, adding prestige, and the envy of all nations, to New Zealand's honors.

And what the hell have the American students been doing with their spare time? Studying for exams, writing papers, doing lab experiments, flashing their naughty bits in sandy places? Who knows, but I do know they have diminishing the standing of the USA in the eyes of the World, by letting this record slip through their fingers.

It's not only the biggest tape ball in the world, it is also unusually well socialized. It gets taken on rides in cars, and when at home spends its time in a well-furnished location so it can discuss philosophy with its human friends.



SPUCK  Sunday Apr 5 06:04 AM

Yeah rite!

I could beat that easy.

Now where's my 3 foot exercise ball, the garden hose, and my half-used roll of tape.

Lets see now 24,416 cubic inches of water...
105 gallons...
My 'tape ball' will weigh 874 lbs!

...and it lives in a pet shop now?

A sticky situation. Big balls are a good thing. Sometimes you need them.

They were using the digital scale at the veterinarian's office.

Yeah, but I never liked that asshole: he's so damn clingy and transparent.


Happy Monkey  Sunday Apr 5 11:48 AM

Hrmph. Size isn't everything.



Sheldonrs  Sunday Apr 5 03:30 PM

If you think THAT ball is big, try getting epididymitis.



Shawnee123  Sunday Apr 5 05:33 PM

I've got big balls
I've got big balls
And they're such big balls
Dirty big balls
And he's got big balls
And she's got big balls
But we've got the biggest balls of them all


AC/DC

Nonsense. He's a well-rounded character who can roll with the punches. And I'm always finding new layers inside him.

and assumed you must be discussing Sheldon




ZenGum  Sunday Apr 5 10:07 PM

Surely, Sheldon has some standards!



Aliantha  Sunday Apr 5 10:16 PM

I'll bet they started out just making a tape ball to play hallway cricket and then got carried away.

I'll also bet it was boys who did this and not girls.

One male & one female, you lose.

Obviously you never said to him "no hurry, stick around" and three days later he's still there, has drank all your scotch, and won't adhere to simple house rules (I've told him to put the seat down about 60 times.) I told him to stick around and I got stuck. Hmmph.

The rooster CLucks DeFiance...The lawyer Fucks de Clients.

Geez Bruce, I know I just had a baby and all, but they did stitch me up pretty tight afterwards...


xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Apr 7 12:21 AM

I have no idea what you're talking about. :p



Aliantha  Tuesday Apr 7 02:30 AM

Must be age catching up with you then.

Dirty tricksy moderator powers!

Remember, though, most kiwi chicks have at least one testicle anyway, so Ali is still pretty close.
