Do tell (or off-list if it's a bit grubby)

Hey Jinx,

Okay, I've got too much packing to do so things are
chaos around here.  So I won't mess with you today...

The green golf ball joke is the joke itself -- it was
the biggest (that I've seen) joke scam by thousands
or millions across the internet about 8-10 years
ago, when the internet was almost completely populated
with just geeks.  The joke was that there was no joke,
but that newbies would get on and be made fun of cause
they did not know the joke.  Actually they were not
made so much fun of, as they were left in the dark
about not knowing the joke.  To date, I'm still not
sure where it got the term "green golf ball".

I remember my period of frustration when I was a
newbie back then.

Cheers,
-Neil.

Ok, I don't understand :-) What is funny about the one that Jinx sent? I
would think that it is just what you say (i.e., it isn't funny) except you
imply that he didn't know that.

:-) Ok, so it isn't the first time I have embarrassed myself on the piclist
:-) I read the joke (Jinx's one) again and I got it. At least I have the
excuse that it's late here!

Couldn't find a direct explanation, but this site does mention
it - (as well as those Ginsu knives of yours from the other day -
the world just got the tiniest bit smaller eh ?)

I think it was called the green golf ball joke because there is no way you
can find a green golf ball on a lawn (execpt using a metal detector).

I didn't think golf balls were metal... I thought that they were some kind
of ceramic or plastic composite...  Though, I've never sawed one in half,
they just don't *feel* like metal.

What are they made of?

There is a hard plastic shell, a rubber (I think) core, that is wound
with something that looks and smells like rubber bands. At least that's
what one looked like (mumble) years ago when I disassembled it.

BTW, there is an Urban Legend that golf balls will release a deadly
gas if broken open.

I would love to see the UL / CSA / CE / TUV certification reports if
that were the case.  Heh.

The central core varies. Cheap golf balls (almost typed Gold Balls) are
filled with rubber. Expensive ones are filled with Titanium.
