World Record Beach Ball

They like to do things big in Texas. On Sunday, the world's biggest beach ball was dropped on Elm Street in Dallas. The ball was produced by Carnival Cruise Lines, and was accepted into the Guinness Book of World Records. Exact dimensions of the ball were not included in the article, but it was required to be more than ten meters in diameter to break the record. Link (with video) -Thanks, Brian!

It was so much fun. I heard that it was over 36 feet in diameter. seriously, so much fun. My friend made this video with sound that approximates the fun I had:

The ball was half full of helium, so it wasn't that heavy at all. It was quite a sight! When they dropped it off the side of the building, it looked like it was falling in super slow motion!
