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.

    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.

    i have often wondered from what height would someone survive being dropped inside a zorb ball, it would be interesting to see someone use a crash test dummy with sensors mounted to it so they could measure the forces involved

    For magnus effect on such a large ball, have a generator and tredmill to apply the proper spin to the ball before flinging itself over the edge

    I so wish i did all these things they do, ive always wanted to do some of those types of things some day. Great videos, i love watching them.

    How do they build a dam like that? It blows my mind! Awesome content mates!

    If the holes on the sides of the zorb where facing to each side . it would've gone a lot further. The effect works with airflow from underneath powering the spin further. The holes are causing drag and slowing it down . Love to see the ridiculousness of it all !

    I love the sound of the Zorbie hitting the ground lol. The hollowness and flexibility combined with the fact that there's a hole on one side turns the whole thing into a sound cannon, like a big ol' drum.

    They seem like a bunch of great friends having a great time. It’s a win for me. Spread the Joy, Men!

    Good to see the Aussies using the zorb ball, invented right here in New Zealand.

    Next time you try a Zorb, attach a rope or strap with gaffer tape loosely so it can easily rip off to the ball and wrap it vertically around the ball a couple of times. Then tie the other end to the barrier. When the ball drops the rope will spin it around as it unravels, and you should have shed loads of spin.

    Something I feel like you guys forget a lot of time is air resistance. Wind may be low on the ground and at elevation, but it isn’t the same air pressure from those different elevations, and it always changes. That’s why the Magnus effect is kinda skewed

    Your videos are fascinating. Also brightens the day, I’m subscribing. Thanks for sharing these fun experiments.

    Question boys…does the wind direction dictate the forward or backward rotation to achieve maximum Magnus effect?

  • Derek Buhse

    The biggest issue with this is the imbalances in the balls weight so it is almost impossible to generate a good magnus effect.

    They should do a video on watching paint dry as they laugh hysterically.

    Anyone else think they where going to go down it inside the Zorb?

    Should've wrapped a long rope around the circumference, held onto one end of the rope while letting the ball unspool over the edge like a yo-yo to get a good spin.
