    What's the 44 Club you may ask? 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:
    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:

    i'm sorry but you guys did it wrong.
    it does mater how you put tape there.
    if you start test with gaps then you should end like that.
    bcus fully covered frame is much stronger.

    How many strange up tarps does it take to make a bowling ball bounce? That's what the Aussie in me wants to know. It might be less then what your thinking. So get the bl oo dy bell on and stop digerie doing around all ready.

    To paraphrase Jamie Hyneman, duct tape isn't a perfect solution to anything, but with a little creativity, it's an adequate solution to just about everything..

    I'm surprised you didn't do some diagonally. Putting them all perpendicular just lines up how the tape tears.

    My God the flies! How satisfying would it be to swing one of those electrified bug-zapping tennis rackets around the tower? It might be more therapeutic than popping bubble wrap!
