The Top Ten Random Things to Talk to Total Strangers About

1 The Insides of Ping-Pong Balls

Now, the insides of ping-pong balls can be really interesting. Ping-pong balls have to be made lightweight and must have a lack of density, such that it does not require much force and momentum to accelerate them. Therefore, ping-pong balls are made hollow with a rigid surface. The surface is made strong and rigid, such that it keeps it shape, and experiences a large force upon impact from its impulse, which creates the force required to bounce it to a similar height to its initial height. If the ball were solid and not hollow, it would be more dense and somewhat heavier, therefore harder to accelerate with the same force being applied. It would also receive a smaller force on impact from greater momentum at a fixed velocity, preventing it from slowing sufficiently on impact, and would not reach rebound heights similar to the initial height. Therefore, the inside of a ping-pong ball is sufficient for its purpose. Interesting, isn't it? - PositronWildhawk

Just very random.

It'd be interesting to see just how long this conversation would be. - Britgirl

2 How Many Times a Day People Say the Word 'The'

OVER 9000!

I'd be afraid to find out! - Curti2594

The subject is one of the most interesting of the range of all of the subjects that the list can have in the circumstances. In the comments, the "the" count has all of the attention of the people who are the most interested in the statistics of the "the" count. The word "the" must have been the main focus of the attention of the "the" counters. The whole "the" ordeal is one of the hardest things to explain to the people on TheTopTens, so the point at which I stop is the present. The next thing I do, I presume, is go to the retailer for a CD by the band "The The". - PositronWildhawk

What I do understand something about 'the is that it is used in
The lion king
The River
The Taxi
The Book

The is something which only P.W. 's speech can explain. I don't why 'the' heck I'm doing with 'the' thing but of everything thing has something which we might be 'the' thing. No wonder I'm confused with 'the'. - Kiteretsunu
