My balls are big, soft (cough cough) and round, thank you very much. I play basketball at the local YMCA's in my county. Pierce county in Washington State if you want to stalk me or challenge me to a one on one.

I don't do sports, I'm pretty unfit. I'm sure the army will change that soon enough :oldtongue:

I always like big balls but I don't get fantasized about them. I love playing others e.g shooting games, which are more fantastic!

You need plenty of balls to join the army, good luck with that.

You do not like playing with little balls, tennis, ping pong etc, yet you like shoot them up games, i am not playing with you.

Ghetto kids play basketball.
Some go to regular colleges and play football
Some go to Ivy League colleges and play baseball or tennis.
Some go on to be business executives and play golf.
Clearly, the richer you are, the smaller your balls.

I hear that Donald Trump doesn't think that's funny.

I've always really not enjoyed "ball sports". They just seem to lack something which can hold my interest.

The torus, on the other hand, makes for a beautiful piece of apparatus which I've started to become obsessed with.

I don't think hockey pucks constitute as balls, but they're round!

Lol... I reckon you're right...... :oldbiggrin:


However... Uncle Bill trumps "The Donald' by so much...

There is currently no proven physical significance of the Planck length
Maybe now, we have found some... lol


So I'm not hijacking the thread... I played with a lot of "snow balls" during my snow plowing time at MDT, I was just a storm temp, but it was kinda fun... :oldsmile:

I used to have one of those, but I broke it and couldn't put it back together again. There were always some pieces left over...

Soccer balls are best.

But, pool balls are a pretty good substitute - especially in the winter.

As an oldster, I've loved playing soccer, american football, tennis, bocce, billiards/pool, and bowling.
My latest love has been of the "volley" type.

I really have no idea why people get upset when I say I have a love of playing with balls.
