Nill illigitimi carborundum
it never stops :)
we started making one in a lab i worked in a few years ago, last time i saw it was way bigger that a football. Keep going Sean you can catch up!
never never never stops!!!
when I saw your comment I thought its not the starting it thats the problem
sorry clicked twice - very impatient me :-o
Don't bother dropping it out of a third storey window (onto an empty street), they don't bounce.
you need more rubber bands to add to that and by the way if ya make em tight it will bounce hehehe the one i made ages ago did
yep when they get big and tight they bounce
Yeah, I've unwound it and rewrapped it dead tight. Nearly took out my light fitting. Fantatsic! Whee!
how DO you actually start one?
joe. that question does not have an answer, they just ARE!
Hehe - It's like starting a scoobidou.
*Awaits google flood*
Only kidding. I started by wrapping a couple of times around my finger then wrapping it over itself - cos it's all rubber the friction kind of holds it together long enough to get a few good turns on.
It's easy to stop at the moment cos the final band will wrap around it, but if it gets much bigger I have no idea how to stop it.... It's outta control!
if you ever need more bands just look on the floor out side peoples houses! the red post office ones are every where you dont see them till you start looking!
Yeah, might have a scavange along the street when I buy the paper today :)
They're quite good at picking them up along our way though. Perhaps they're making balls of their own...
i usually find started out rubber band balls around, i think people give up, thats why i assume they just ARE, no one actually starts them!
i may well start a paperclip ball!!............dangerous..much!
you cant use the red rubber bands that post men use as they are bio-degradable they break down after a while
