Did any of them actually die or at least lose their ability to reproduce?  No?  Then Darwin did not move in, its too bad though because reading this "Chief Bob Rupp says students elsewhere in the building failed to leave despite blaring alarms and heavy smoke." makes me angry for some reason.

Ping pong balls burn pretty intensely. I don't know if anyone else has ever had the curiosity to say "hey Imma light a f*cking ping pong ball on fire and see what happens", but I have.

More likely scenario: dumbass A decides to throw it at dumbass B after dumbass B steals dumbass A's beer.  Then, when all hell breaks loose, they make up a stupid story about a dent in the ball.

I know this because I used to be a dumbass.

They should have stuck to designing roller-coasters.

I think those things are made from nitrocellulose, and in any case do burn rather intensely.  But for some real fun throw a golf ball into a fire.

Shh, all the people out there who gleefully call things darwinism yet never want to have kids might figure things out before it's too late.

Did they get the dent out of the ball?

Probably, but then they stepped on it.

Those things are actually pretty damn flammable.

Why do so many people here know that ping-pong balls are extremely flammable?

The same reason we know so much about Justin Bieber. It's not like we want to know all this shiat, it's just the god damned internet.

If you throw confetti around a lit candle you may get a surprise. Just one more thing to keep in mind.

To be fair if it was anything like the dorm i lived in, it was probably the 10th alarm of the week, and 95% of the time its some dumb biatch who doesnt know about the popcorn button on her microwave.

Darwin didn't move in, no; he paused for a moment outside, rocked back and forth on his heels for a spell while stroking his beard thoughtfully, then shook his head and strolled on.

I'm not so sure about the age bit, there. I went to visit my father a while back and he was giggly as a school girl. So, of course, I ask him what's up. He brings me over to the garage to show me the new, extra high powered chain saw he had just bought. At the time, he was closer to 55 than 60, if I remember right.

When a tree came down on his garage a year ago, I got to use the chainsaw. It's wonderful.

Na the age limit holds true, what your father was exhibiting was the natural, healthy male attraction to tools, preferably ones with massive motors behind them, now if he had decided to scale a tree with it in order to see if when he cut the branch he was sitting on it would hang there like in cartoons or immediately fall, then you might have had a argument...

Had they just stuck with a stripper shooting ping pong balls, all of this could have been avoided.

I didn't know that ping-pong balls were flammable. In my experience the contents invariably were.

He should hold a press conference explaining how he doesn't butt-chug. I'm sure it won't be awkward.

Had a girlfriend that went to college at Bloomsburg in the 90s. Real bad fire during that time took out 5 college kids and another fire in 2000 took out 3 more. Disabling smoke detectors is very bad. Don't do it even if you gotta cook through the beeping. Fully extinguishing and completely removing from the premises any burning furniture before going to bed is also a pretty good rule to live by. I don't,however, see the harm in playing a little drunken flaming beer pong in a small apartment at a school where Final Destination: The Cremation Education took place. Party On, bozos.

Hot air expands.  They didn't want to light the ball on fire - they wanted to heat the air inside it.

I think the point is that you shouldn't hold an open flame to something you don't intend to light on fire. You want to reenglobulate a ping-pong ball, you use a hair dryer or hot water for that.

It's a word if I say it is

Fark that, at least for the ping pong ball I know because I was once a preteen boy and more than once tried to play "flaming ping pong" spectacularly unsuccessfully.

Hey, I didn't say they had foresight.  Just logic.
