    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.

    Use a pitching machine to get maximum spin and see how it affects the magnus effect...

    Yep it definitely did disappear and reappear behind and too the left.

    Has anyone said how the helium exercise ball seemed to disappear and reappear.

    Results are biased because of the disproportionate amount of berries you were each giving... I call for a redo 😁😂🤣

    Just in case, the weight doesn’t matter, but the shape the object has. So if it’s the same shape but with different weights it will hit the ground at the same time

    I'd bet someone else mentioned this, but I wonder of they were filled to the same pressure? That would be substantially more hydrogen atoms, and I'm interested to know if you weighed them.

    1:09 Herron, you're doing an experiment - are you sure you're not scientists? And what the heck, I'll guess 4 minutes 44 seconds on filling the exercise ball.

    I think you should try it with sulfur anti helium

    The gym balls weren't an accurate test. The helium ball was released into a much more horizontal pitch this giving it more forward momentum and aiding the Magnus effect and distance. In order for the results to be validated you need to find a method to replicate launch angle, speed, revolutions, height. Though fun to watch I think you need to tag up with Mark Rober to engineer a solution to perfectly replicate and test the effects. That video would get 500k likes for sure. Cheers from Qatar.

    You guys need to collab with Mark Rober to develop a robot that will launch both balls with the same power and backspin.

    I'm really glad Scott didn't need to use that harness and rope...the hoops on the side that he's clipped into are NOT designed to take a fall, only to hold quick draws and other gear, that was terrifying to look at, haha

    You should fill a jim ball with nitrogen and compare it to heilman.

    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.
