THE NET — If you spend much time on the internet, you've seen a lot of videos and whole YouTube channels that involve trick shots with all kinds of sports balls.
Ping-pong balls are a popular choice for people who aren't Dude Perfect. I'm guessing this is because ping-pong balls are cheap — which means you don't need a cash infusion from sponsors — and they are light, which means they can be tossed around your home safely.
Now, this featured video starts out like all the other ping-pong videos, with a few increasing distance shots and some angled boards. But if you patiently watch the just-over-one-minute video, you'll be rewarded with some impressive upgrades.
YouTube user DoodleChaos is responsible for posting the clip, which he aptly describes as a "crescendo of difficulty." One-hand shots escalate to two-hand shots. Two-hand shots escalate to timing shots with moving parts. Then moving parts shots escalate into moving parts that are literally thrown into each set up with a sort of chaotic precision.
It all ends with a small Rube Goldberg machine and a guttural "yes" from the ping-pong ball throwing hero in the video.
After all my praise, however, I do have one qualm. You may notice that we don't actually see any human actually throwing ping-pong balls. Basically, I cannot guarantee that each throw wasn't done by a precision robot or even a wizard. Please post any other conspiracy theories you may have in this vein below, and I'm sure we'll get to the bottom of it.
