No, just couldn't sit up for long periods of time, I was still trying to get all that fluid out of my lungs (ask Nacho, that has to be one of the worst things one has to do during recovery).

Ok, I have been corrected.....found the article on ZDNet that I referenced, and then later when they reversed that thought and declared Blu-ray the successor.

Actually, i would bet to get all the fidelity digitized from that ball, you'd need more cd's than there are records...

Is it just me, or is this going to set the world record for being the most bizarre thing I've ever seen?

Maybe the pipes are to provide venting, being black it would absorb lots of heat.. Wouldn't want a huge vinyl puddle. Or so the hamsters have a way in and out of the worlds largest darkest hamster ball lol.
