Comment Ripley's Believe It or Not Ball (Score 3, Interesting) 138

How about just outside the Gatlinburg museum's entrance, visitors can see a 5-ton solid granite ball floating and spinning on 1/264 of an inch of pressurized water. Visitors may put their hands on the 4-foot diameter ball and spin it in another direction. Or the Merchant Family Memorial (Ripley's Believe It or Not Ball).

The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.
