    What's the 44 Club you may ask? Well it all started in the outro of this video tvclip.biz/video/AyLPMhp7qbs/video.html 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.

    How ridiculous can you guys do competition between all of you and see who can build a device that would keep an egg intact and drop it from the tower and dam.

    The camera angles from the drone are pretty much worthless. Instead of giving a side angle view to see what you can't see from the launch point. You just have the drone way up looking down at the balls, giving basically the same view as the launch point.

    “We’ll pin ya” sounds so much like “Wilpinnia” which could be a random NSW country town!
    I’m aware of Wilcannia, but I’d love it if Wilpinnia also actually exists.

    Hey guys! Just wanted to let you know, those harnesses are super duper expired. They are about 5 to 8 years past their expiration dates.
    The figure eights knot look super loose and tethering with a tubular sling and a square knot in it is about as safe as having nothing at all.
    Made me laugh out loud when you said "trust these harnesses".
    (I'm a climbing instructor.)

    You should try using hydrogen. It's lighter than Helium and explosive. It would be spectacular.

    If my physics memory serves me well, I believe that no matter what you put in the balls as long as they are the same shape and thrown the same way (which none of these were), they will arrive at the bottom at the same time. If you've ever seen a feather and a steel ball in a vacuum tube it's the same point, just that here you have the resistance of air so it's important that they are the same balls... Someone please correct me if I'm wrong

    The gear loop on a harness isn't fall rated. Scott's protection looks like it was hooked up to the gear loop instead of the belay loop. I'm glad no one took a fall. Next time you harness up make sure you use the belay loop for protection. I really enjoy your videos and can't wait to see more!

    I'd be pretty surprised if the helium made any sort of meaningful difference in the soccer and basketballs. Not enough gas with a heavy exterior. But it seems the exercise balls were influenced. More gas with a lighter external material.

    It was all in the throws. The difference in throws is amplified the larger and lighter the ball. Helium didn't make a difference.
