What's the 44 Club? Well it all started in the outro of this video 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.
We are passionate about seeing children released from poverty and we would love you to consider sponsoring a child with Compassion. We visited our sponsor children in the Philippines and were blown away by the difference that child sponsorship can make. To find out more about sponsoring a child right now, check out:
What Slow Mo Camera Do We Use? We've got the The Chronos 1.4 which shoots 1500fps at 720p. Check it out here
A big thanks to the awesome crew at the Gravity Discovery Centre in Gingin for letting us use their 45m leaning tower for our own experiments. If you wanna head out there and check it out, it's not far from Perth. Western Australia:

Should try it again, but with a thin thread to keep it at a small distance and centered. Thread should easily snap once the cannon effect takes place.

Next time, stick the little ball onto the big ball with a little bit of blue tack - just enough to hold it in place while you drop it, but not enough to stop it bouncing off.

Just use a small piece of tape between the balls to keep them together while they fall, with that you could drop a stack of three or four balls. You may be able to get one to bounce twice the height of the tower.

So, this may have been said, but if you were to hang a lead weight to stabilise the fall of the lower ball and use a small pin or needle to holt the top ball in place... You might just be able to' middle it!

What about putting a small bit of cellophane tape looped over itself and then stick the small ball to the top of the big ball and then drop it. The tape should help with holding the small ball in place so you could concentrate holding the big ball for a nice steady drop. The tape should offer only the smallest bit of resistance.

What if, you take just a small drop of glue (hot or regular), that way the small and large ball stick together on the drop, but the force of the bounce will break the glue. Possibly become more accurate at the point of contact and create higher bounces??? Second take on this vid plz!!!

Could maybe even use some kinda glue to hold them together just enough and not stop them from doing the full bounce

Idk if y’all will see this but try this with command strips on each ball. They aren’t super strong and would provide stability to the balls on the way down.

Very enjoyable. For an interesting idea do a IDshow search on WKRP Turkey Drop. I suggest frozen only.

What they needed was to put a pin needle or toothpick in both of the balls to keep them together. When it came time though the needle/toothpick would easily be freed because the ball on top would be flying upwards. Maybe next time but that's what I would do.

You should try this again, but build a sort of cone shaped tube, so you can load the balls on top of each other in it. Then have a hinged panel at the bottom that you can quickly release so the balls stay in line and drop at the same time. Or just have a tube for the smaller ball, so you just have to hold and release the larger one from under the tube, and the smaller ball will naturally fall with it.

I would have used a small piece of yarn with scotch tape to attach the two balls together. The yarn and the tape would only be strong enough to keep the two together during the fall and then easily let go on the bounce.

Double sided tape! Put a bit of it between the two balls. It’ll be enough to keep it in place but it should let go just fine on the bounce. Big ball, medium ball and small ball stacked in that order.

Maybe use masking tape to tape the small ball on the big one. Not strong enough to do much to retard the bounce but enough to hold it in place.

consider double sided tape to put balls together before dropping. It won't help with rotation, but would keep them together.

zak679 2 bulan yang lalu
One of the issues they were having is the bottom ball is created a slipstream what was too large for the little ball causing it to bounce around in the slipstream maybe if they use two of the larger balls they wouldn't get that issue, but then the risk for property damage would also increase too lol still I would like to see it.

On these big-ball-small-ball drops, you should lightly scotch tape the balls together. That will keep the balls aligned until the big bounce blasts them apart.
M Scott Johnson

I'm Scott Johnson and this is Science with Johnson. What you need to do is put some fletchings on the big ball to keep it from rotating. It'll fall straight down, which is what you want so that all of its kinetic energy is converted to linear and not angular momentum after it bounces. Then, put the small ball right in the middle. The air resistance on the big ball will slow its fall and the small ball, shielded by the big ball, will experience no air resistance and sit directly on top of the big ball. A bounce with no spin and the small ball directly on top is what you want.
PandaTurtle 2 bulan yang lalu
Okay now this is just a hypothesis. But what if you taped the smaller ball to larger ball in the center with weak tape. Just to keep it in the center on descent. Once it experiences the force from impact the tape would bust and it would increase the smaller ball's vertical height without all the trial and error. I say this because I was honestly disappointed at the results. Still enjoyed the video!! Keep doing the good work!!
muntaindw 2 bulan yang lalu
just use some weak tape to hold it next to the bigger ball, it should rip right off no problem.
Damon Finken

4 balls, big on bottom getting smaller. Only difference is a small piece of string about 1" to 2" between each. Each smaller ball creates just enough drag to prevent it from spinning and keeps the balls mostly in line. The balls should all be making contact before launching the cannonball (small) into space at fairly a vertical direction. The more balls being used, the more variable for being out of line. I'm not a scientist per say, however a am a Martial artist who uses physics to create power.

You didn't want it to roll, so you START by dropping it from one side in an under-release mechanism....brilliant. Proof you can make money without a brain. You just have to be lucky, IDshow lucky.
