Now We Know: Ping Pong Balls Burn Fast And Furious

ping-pong-ball-fire.jpg

This is a video of a brick oven full of 2,538 ping pong balls being lit. The flame burns so hard and tall because ping pong balls are made out of celluloid, a highly flammable plastic. Mmmm, I love the smell of burning ping pong balls in the morning. Smells like...burning plastic. And *sniffing* is that stale beer? What is this, the opening ceremonies for the Beer Pong Olympics?

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to my buddy Terry, who has way less going on inside his head than any of those ping pong balls.

There are Comments.

    If you're bored and looking for something else to do with ping pong balls, put a couple in the microwave. But make sure you do it outside with an old microwave. And stand back. And don't stand downwind.
