There’s an up-and-coming artist in Windham, NH whom you should know about.
A “one-of-a-kind ball” made of aluminum foil is for sale on Craig’s List.
According to the ad, the ball, called “unit” by its creator, weighs ten pounds and was made using 63 rolls of aluminum foil, along with “blood, sweat, and tears.”
This insanely talented person has some suggestions of what the purchaser could do with it. “Exercise with it,use it as an antenna to contact the spirits, or just a sweet yard decoration.”
This silver beauty isn’t cheap, though. It’s currently for sale for $10,000.
Now, I did some research. Even if heavy duty brand name Reynolds Wrap was used, that’s $10.98 a roll at Walmart totaling $691.74. If they were more budget friendly, they’d go with the generic brand at $6.52 a roll, bringing the grand total to $410.76. That’s a big difference. Now, say they used a generic industrial restaurant sized roll, they would have saved even more money.
Basically, this person wasted money, time, blood, sweat, tears, and precious aluminum foil. I hope they can reuse it.
But look, if you can come up with the ten grand for this thing, think about the possibilities. You can sell tickets for people to view the unit. Maybe make your money back. Hey, it worked in “Field of Dreams”, right?
