    Default Ever wanna turn your room into a big ballpit?

    Now you can!

    It'll cost me $2300 to make my room a ballpit.

    It would cost me $47000 to fill my apartment, and $6100 for my bedroom. Totally do-able. That would be awesome.

    Well I'm in a small dorm room, so maybe about $3000 if I were to fill the whole room. Don't think the roomy would like that so probably only half of that. My bedroom at my house is bigger so that would definitely be more. And I would probably fill the entirety of the big bedroom at home. I have to say that is one of my favorite of the xkcd comics.

    I almost did this.
    I had priced the balls and everything but then funding it fell through.

    There is another link to someone who actually did it and it looks really sweet. I can't seem to find it though.

    Definitely a cool idea.

    To fill my house (1200 sq feet) to a depth of 4 feet (2 would only be a tease) would cost ~$52k, and my marriage...

    And then the divorce would probably cost more than the ball pit.
    My goal in life is to earn enough money to enjoy the lifestyle that my wife and kids do.

    I found the link to the people that did it.
    They just did a small version but it still looks like a good time.
