Win A Set Of BuckyBalls By Leaving A Comment

By David Ponce

Update 2: Sorry guys, the promo code is “ohgiz” and not the one at the bottom of this article. 20% off!

We wrote about BuckyBalls a few days ago and the company got in touch, offering some sets as giveaways. If you don’t know, BuckyBalls are 216 tiny magnet balls that can be re-arranged in any number of ways. I’ve got mine on my desk right now, and they’re awesome!

We’ve got three up for grabs, and all you got to do is leave a comment on this post.

Yeah… entering is that simple. Winning is different, since we’ll choose winners not at random, but at our discretion. And by “our”, I mean my dictatorial opinion. It might be the most entertaining comments, or the most compelling, or the most creative… I’ll decide. In other words, earn your BuyckyBalls guys; it just takes a little comment.

Oh yeah, and enter once. Be nice. We’ll be checking.

Update: Oh yeah, guys, I almost forgot. If you don’t win, you can still be a winner by entering promo code “ohgizmo” and get 20% off your own set of BuckyBalls!

    What did the male magnet say to the female magnet?
    From your backside, I thought you were repulsive. However, after seeing you from the front, I find you rather attractive.

    I wish I could think of something witty to say about balls, but insomnia doesent seem to be humor’s friend…

    These things look like they would be awesome to just absentmindedly play with while you’re watching TV or something. I do wonder where the name “Bucky Balls” came from, couldnt find anything on their website about it.

    So there was this college student geek kid who wasn’t so manly, so OhGizmo.com felt bad for him and thought they would help him boost his ego so they kindly gave him a set of BuckyBalls to boost his self esteem! The End!

Ohgizmo.com heard and felt bad for this poor poor geek and thought they would help him boost his ego, so they gave him his own set of BuckyBalls to raise his self esteem.

    When I first read about these, I wanted some.
    I thought these must be over priced and instead of paying for the name, I'd just buy the same magnets from another store. Turns out, ZoomDoggle has the best price for this amount and size of sphere magnet(s).
    Anyway, the day they arrived, I was able to play with the Bucky Balls at least 15 minutes before the door bell rang. If I knew then, what I know now I would have either kept quite and continued playing or would have stashed them away. My Friend stopped by with her twelve year old daughter. You know the one that I could never say no to? Yeah, her. I was excited to show off my(her) new toy. In the same moment I handed over the jar, was the same time she assumed ownership. My smile began to droop, then was twice as big. She said, ” Thank you!” and opened the jar.
    Yes, I lost my new toy, but knowing that she was distracted from her DS for a few hours was worth it. Even though, I bet the jar is somewhere under the back seat of her mother's car or buried within the sea of toys in her closet.
    UPDATE I asked about them and she told me, they are doing fine and happy on her desk. She didn't exactly refused to bring them back, but has offered to take a picture. That is, if I let her use my camera.

    I have nothing clever or witty to say. But I love me some BuckyBalls.

    The only sad thing about the situation is I had a friend in high school with the nickname “Bucky.” So you can see how it will be strange to play with these balls.

    So if you love homoerotic gadgets (and honestly, who doesn't?), then give me them balls!

    BuckyBalls aren't just for personal desk enjoyment…not by any means! They can be re-allocated to other tasks such as cleaning a work area of construction debris, playing “confuse a gambler” at a Japanese pachinko parlor; the all new “Metallic Pea” color for the Family Truckster; or even swallowed (yeck!) by farm animals to cleanse their digestive tracks of metallic matter. Oh the uses beyond the desk.. If I had a set; I could find more…

    Ahh Bucky, What Became of Your Kind? A Review of Utopia or Oblivion?

    In its day (1969-72, when I first read it), this was one of those inspirational heartbreakers — why can't EVERYONE see the promise of the approaching possible Golden Era? But with time (what, over 35 years now, since I first read it) even the great futurist himself seems a little dated. And I'd forgotten (or never really noticed before) how angry he could get, and not just at the Great Pirates who well deserve(d) it (especially considering recent economic news), but for those who had slighted him in the past as a gadfly of sorts. These lectures/expositions are a series of previously-published papers, and there is a lot of redundancy, but the basic question (“It's up to us, do we want to succeed or fail?”) still rings true. And some of his ideas, like the World-Wide Electrical Power Grid, and the end of the Nation-States were absolutely brilliant in their foresight. The bottom line, however, and what I think will be his legacy, is to look at the world not only differently (the sun doesn't set, the world turns), but holistically (there is no up and down, only in and out)… and how about those buckminsterfullerene molecules (buckyballs!) — they will change the world. We'll miss your kind, Bucky… we already do. (As a side note, I got to shake hands and speak briefly with Bucky after his Earth Day speech at Florida State University in 1974[?], just as the sun went down, and it still brings a tear to my eye to recall how both intelligent and innocent he was at the same time.)

    What a coincidence! After 3 years of telling my wife I was going to get a vasectomy and putting it off because I am a little scared of surgery. I finally set an appointment for Oct. 23. I should say that all I can think of is what if something goes wrong. What if a blood clot follows the well worn pathway that so many manly signals have traveled before and flows from my testes right to my brain?… What if I get infected and my family jewels blow up to the size of ripe cantaloupes?… What if I find out in November that there is a deadly virus loose among the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders squad and the only antidote is a personal “special delivery” of my own healing sperm?… Must not think bad thoughts. Must not think bad thoughts. So I call and set it up. I put the phone down and pick up the laptop and lo and behold I find your offer of free Bucky Balls.
    Now I know there will be days if not weeks after surgery when I won't be able to play with my own… so please send me a set of Bucky's Balls. There is nothing, nothing, I can think of that will alleviate the misery, the ache, the pure emasculating temerity that will happen on Oct. 23 except a set of Bucky Balls… Oh yea, and a twenty pound bag of ice.

    Maybe this limerick will help my chances:

    I would like to thank the Ohgizmo academy
    For recognizing this altercation upon my anatomy
    No ifs ands or buts
    I'm in for an a-salting of my nuts
    So send me those Bucky Balls on the day of my vasectomy

    I used to work at an elementary school and the music teacher would usually be out on duty with me on the playground at recess. The students usually brought their baseballs, kickballs, superballs…you name it. When it came time for the bell to ring telling us it was time for recess to be over the music teacher would always yell out “RECESS IS OVER…HOLD YOUR BALLS!” Man did those boys laugh everytime as well as me…she never knew what she was saying and it still cracks me up. I'd really like to hold those buckyballs.

    Adding a set of nice, ferrous balls would really put the finishing touches on my cubicle:

    It will automatically let co-workers know that I’m not afraid to “make the call.” (“That guy’s got balls!”)

    When I use them during a brainstorming session, it’ll show that I can “think outside the box.” (“I’ve never seen balls like that before…)

    When I’m running late in the morning and need to save some time, I can shave at work by looking at my reflection in my shiny Buckyballs. (“Why’s he staring at his balls?”)

    A well-configured Buckyball sculpture in a drab office could lift my co-workers spirits and add some style to a sea of beige furniture. (“His balls looked so good today, I think I’ll postpone my two-weeks notice.”)

    The possibilities are endless.

    I am only leaving a comment in the hopes of winning. To wax wit would possibly increase my chances, but considering that winners are chosen at the discretion of the editors, well; one can only post and hope. I would definitely love a set of these.

    Peace.

    these look awesome!

  • ryantanguay

    Out of 162 comment thus far only ONE person has mentioned who Bucky actually is! Buckminster Fuller was a man ahead of his time. He had invented so many things that are still considered to be ahead of this time.
    While in his prime, he envisioned and prototyped a dome or sphere that was so structurally sound that no matter what size you build, with no supporting columns internally or externally. Many buildings showed this design, one famous one was the Montreal Biosphere (look it up) or you may be more familiar with “Spaceship Earth” better known as Epcot. They were so strong and perfect that they have been used for many buildings and sports complexes.
    They are even creating molecules that are in the shape of mini “Epcots” and they have named them “Bucky Balls”. They are hollow balls that are comprised entirely of carbon and are incredibly strong for their size. They are trying to use them in applications of material where tensile strength is needed.
    Just thought I would share a little about what “Bucky Balls” are all about. I had first heard about him in college where I studied design. I hope the winners of this contest read this to know a little more of what they had won.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Bob-Huey/1246884988 Bob Huey

    Still, so far, three people actually made reference to Mr. Fuller — you excluded — though they may not have explained his roll behind Bucky Balls.

  • acetheI

    This is so much fun! I am usually the only commenter here. Welcome after, everyone.

  • theganjaguru

    I normally wouldn't jump in line to beg for a free give-away, but “I want one, I want one!” Seriously, those things look awesome. Unfortunately, unless I get them for free I highly doubt I will ever have any first hand experience with them. I guess I'm saying I'd love to have a set, BuckyBalls and bong rips seem like a great way to kill a few hours.

    Sincerely,

    Yes, I apologize, I did notice the other references to the person behind the Bucky Ball after i had posted my comment.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Bob-Huey/1246884988 Bob Huey

    It's all good.

  • spawnxd

    My life is just one of fore things boring, sad, morbid, or occasionally happy, that's why i have been able to count how many times I've actually won anything. 7, 7 is how many things I've won in my entire life. Would you be so kind as to make that number 8?

  • terrypescosolido

    “Bucky Balls” is also a chemistry term for a chemical structure that looks like a large soccer ball (relatively speaking, of course). My wife has a chemistry degree, and this would make an ideal present for her. Help a hubby score some marital brownie points!

    Bucky Balls are so fun. My friend gave me a free pair cause he won some for a video contest. Its fun when you try to make shapes out of them like a cube, which isn’t hard but if you try to make a sphere. It takes me forever!

    If only they were only soccer ball shaped like real buckyballs. They're not even superconducting like cesium doped buckeyballs. They may be better for your heatlh than real buckyballs though.

    Part of me just wants to find out what would happen if you set these up in a delicate circle around one of those plastic army men. Then when you tipped one off sending the whole cascade of balls into the unfortunate plastic 'lack-of-action' figure if they would take his head off. Make my experiment possible.
