ONU Ping Pong VideoHow many hours does it take to record a 3 minute and 42 second YouTube video of college guys shooting ping pong balls into cups?

Probably hours that could have been better used focused on higher education … but they now have a popular YouTube video to put on their resume … and who knows what might be a worthwhile skill. I’ve heard of “softball talent” as a hiring criteria, why not ping pong basketball?  BTW, I was surprised to see an “ONU” T-shirt, until I realized it was not Ohio Northern University (whew!) — the alumni of Olivet Nazarene University must be so proud.


  • A friend just sent me a clip from the new Disney/Pixar’s “UP” movie since it had a classmate from ONU 2 years behind me — Bob Peterson. (Thanks for the email … but how did a ‘gear’ end up writing, directing, animating and doing voiceovers for films?)
