    Man creates 1,300-pound baseball

    ALEXANDRIA, Ind. - A man who's spent years applying layers of paint to a baseball that's grown to enormous proportions is hoping to have it declared the world's largest ball of paint.

    For the past 27 years, Mike Carmichael has been painting a baseball that hangs in a shed behind his home. It now weighs 1,300 pounds, is more than 35 inches in diameter and has a 111-inch circumference due to more than 18,000 layers of paint.

    They should have put a pic of it on that link!! I think this guy's got too much time on his hands, but hey, at least he's staying out of trouble. :)
