Seen that in the media for sure...

Ahh, the ball and paddle. Brings back memories.

Ages ago, when I was short term deployed overseas, there was a lot of down time between actually working.

(Note - being present at your workstation was what you were being paid for. So if anything went down, there weren't phone calls to find you.)

So to fill the time, one of our officers got a ball and paddle from the PX and marked down the highest count. A morale booster for us all as we tried to exceed the score.

What I say next is not out of pride nor insubordination, but I bested that officer's best score of over 100 continuous bounces of the ball on the paddle. I seen to recall my score was 142.

But, alas, there are always casualties on deployments. The rubber band broke that connected the ball and paddle.

The things you do while you are waiting for the S to hit the fan.

Laugh, and the world laughs with you;
Weep, and you weep alone.
For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth;
But has trouble enough of its own.
