Things You Can Do With Lots of Balls
Circa 2006, this comic about defining what it means to be a grownup appeared on xkcd.
The comic inspired an online calculator to determine how many playpen balls you would need to fill your apartment (The first floor of my house would require 105,845 balls and cost over $20,000). One, Mike Machenry, felt inspired by the strip and constructed a ball pit in his own home. Then xkcd author, Randall Munroe, followed suit with his own ball pit.
Turns out, plastic colored balls don’t have to be confined to interior design. You can take them outside… and use them to protest.

And here I was just using balls to throw like a sucker. I have so little imagination. 🙂
