Question Trackball Injuries

Has anyone injured themselves messing around with one of these things?

Re: Trackball Injuries

Upon update 4's release, I tried to pump it up to the 47 inches. I stopped around 42 inches, than tried getting it through a 36" door. It got stuck, I proceeded to dropkick the thing in front of my team and a girl I had gone out with the previous Fri. It didn't move, I hit the floor.

Ouch, my pride.

Re: Trackball Injuries

HAHA they look like those huge exercise balls i use to loved playing with when i was younger. It looked like fun to try and slide over the top but my SHORT self didn't make it and i fell off the side almost 4 ft off the floor infront of all the mentors and walked off with black knees.
