[Times] Epitome of Silliness

Have I ever told you guys about my ball of foil?

No?

Well, I think it's high time I did.

I've managed to misplace my digital camera (god damn it, I am cleaning this room the MINUTE I get home from work, I swear on the souls of my ancestors), so I can't provide a picture yet, but let me describe it for you. It's a ball of aluminum foil. And it's very nearly as big as my head. I started it in... oh, had to have been sixth grade. Yes, it's pure foil, all the way to the center. I started it with a bit of foil that was rolled up into a ball. It has consumed multiple rolls of aluminum foil; I have actually purchased foil in the past (and most likely will in the future) solely to add it to the ball.

Why? Hell if I know. Because it's cool.

Feeling: goofy

Evidently I've left my digital camera at home. *facepalm* But as soon as I can get my hands on it, there will be photos. Oh, such photos will there be.

And don't worry. As I have never developed the ability to unhinge my jaw like a snake, there will definitely be no biting of foil going on.

I second the motion. This I've gotta see.

I promise I'll put some pics up as soon as I get my hands on my digicam again. ^_^()

I once saw a pic of the "biggest ball of string on record." It was huge, like about eight feet tall.

I echo the sentiment re your ball of foil - don't bite down on it!

I don't think my foil ball has even hit a foot in diameter yet, unfortunately. But I am working on it.

And no need to worry on that account; I can't open my mouth wide enough to get a single tooth into it.

Didn't they used to have a foil ball the size of a refrigerator on Pee-Wee's Playhouse?

I do believe you're right. That may well be where I got the idea, even.

When it gets to be like ten feet in circumference, you should paint in like the Earth and put a flag bearing your name on it.

As a thought.

GENIUS.

*prostrates himself at your feet* Thank you for this fleeting glimpse of your wisdom, Sensei.
