    I have! Since my video cammera is kicking my ass, I decided to take a break from it. I was sitting out side and noticed that I have a shit ton of golf balls in my shop. SO, being as I was curious as to what was inside, I made a rather complex golf ball "Vice" and got out my circular saw. Didnt work. Golf ball shot accross the street. SO, I fetched the golf ball, re mounted it in the "vice" and went at it with my Sawzall. The golf ball was filled with about 400 feet of rubber band, wraped around what I thought was a solid rubber ball at the core. As I unwound the rubber band stuff, and was left with only the rubber ball core, I noticed it was rather "squishy". So I got my drill, and poked a small hole in it. Its filled with some clear liquid! Interesting. I grabbed another ball, and proceeded to clamp it down. This one has a solid hard rubber core. No rubber band stuff. All solid. Ball # 3, All solid. Hmmm.....


    Wife is shaking her head.






    I need a job......:(



    Where is that fucking video camera!

    It took you THAT long to look inside a golf ball?

    Oh my gawd...the memories are coming back.

    Me & the neighbor kids used to cut off the outside cover to expose the rubber band. We'd tie one end of the rubber band to a pole and stretch it across the street to another pole. We'd sit inside the house and watch cars drive through it all day long. Funny as hell.

    People would stop...grab it with their fingers and look at it...then realize it was just a rubber band. We'd wait till they were gone and go out and retie the thing. Wait for another car.... :eek: (We were bored kids and before video games came out)

    It's all in my head at the moment...
    Drill some holes in a bunch of aforementioned golfballs, run some strong fishing line through them. Then attach them to the rear bumper of your HOA member's vehicles. Do you know the action you'd get from them balls when they bounce, get pulled back in, make contact with the ground and then launch again.....Oh my! It'll look like a mobile Lotto machine bubble.

    They will think the sky is falling.

    Bored too...

    Yeah. They never really intriuged me until I saw them today. I used to just hit them with a tennis racket at my brother. Maybe I'll tie up some cars with the rubber band. :D

    Wow. I guess I was a privelaged youth growing up near a golfcourse. I've known what was inside a golfball since the age of 8. Did your neighbor figure out why a golfball was embedded in the side of his house yet?:D
