YES we did have all the various balls collected from the bottom of the gorge so don't worry about commenting about wasting or polluting, cool cool cool.

We are passionate about seeing children released from poverty and we would love you to considering sponsoring a child with Compassion. We visited our sponsor children in the Philippines and were blown away by the difference that child sponsorship can make.

What's the 44 Club you may ask? Well it all started in the outro of this video www.youtube.com/watch?v=AyLPM... where we wondered if anyone was still watching the video at that point, and to comment 44 (Scott's fave number) if they were. Brett then said 44 Club get on board and the rest is history. The 44Club is the official How Ridiculous fan club made up of people who love our videos and watch them right to the very end. We've even got 44 Club merch now! So yeh, that's the story. Pretty random but good fun at the same time.

    I think it would be interesting to watch how they collected all those balls after they were done. You should have filmed that part also. That would have been cool to see.

  • no

    The cameraman sitting on the edge is really testing my anxiety.

    Magnus only

    Makes sense to me that these super low density things where friction is going to be a significant will have their spin stripped much quicker than something with more inertial capacity. You can definitely see it with the first soccer balloon.

    Loved this video! Since Magnus effect is dependent on the spin of the object maybe you could paint one side of the balls so the spin is more visible. Thanks for the fun guys!

    Nice to see you guys harnessed. The tower videos make me nervous even though it has the tall railing.

    For those of you who don’t know, the Magnus effect is when you are walking along the bottom of a tall canyon or building and get nailed in the head with a ball from some random sport.

    Should have spun the rugby ball from the ends, so it would be rotating around its long axis instead of end-over-end. It might have gotten a lot of Magnus Effect that way, since it would have more surface area than a sphere of equivalent volume. The oblong end-over-end tumble creates completely different aerodynamics.

    I would say that wind currents have a much greater impact than any spin effect, especially for balls with large surface area.

    Damn standing that close to the edge has made my heart pound like a jackhammer.

    With the magnus effect you need to account drag across the surface. Smoother surface gives less lift from magnus, that's why the volleyball soared where the fake soccer ball didn't. It's the drag the panels on the volleyball create. That's also why the exercise ball is so successful, those grip ridges on it help magnus. I'd be curious how much throwing it with the ridges vs against the ridges would impact the distance and steadiness of the flight.

    These 6 balls will take more time to decompose in nature than all visible rocks combined.

    Great video! This is a good example of employing the scientific method. The crew started with 1) hypotheses , then 2) tested the hypotheses, then 3) reevaluated hypotheses, and 4) then retested. With enough tests you would have figured out what is optimal for the Magnus effect. Given enough background on physics and you may have re-derived the Magnus effect, and might have called it your own "How Ridiculous" effect.

    What do you do with those ball after trowing it?

    I would really like to see the sky-hook at various angles. I wonder if 30-45 degrees down might go much further than going up and out as you gents tried. But we need to know! hahaha

    I love this effect on things. Nice video showing the magnus effect on different things of different sizes and weights.

    Cool video! Now I have to find out what the Magnus Effect is all about LOL. Just a suggestion that marking the ball would make it a lot easier to observe the spin.
