No way! Roanoke's ball drop made Neatorama.com and geekdad! Cool.

No, not that Ball Drop.  The Science Museum of Western Virginia hosted this superball drop at noon on New Year's.  About 11,000 balls were dropped, and the kids loved it.

We were stationed on the ground floor, where I hoped my Superball-loving Geeklet would get a good view of the big bounce. While the folks up top had the fun of dropping balls from five stories up, we had the wild experience of being inside the ricochet zone. Yep, I took a couple of hits, but it was worth it — especially when we started scooping up the balls.
