Fill that bus with golf balls

A busload of golf balls…

Did you ever wonder how many used golf balls will fit in a school bus?  Me neither…but apparently this question actually ends up on some job application forms.  There is no sense in failing a job interview because you don’t know the answer, so here we go:

Fill this School Bus with golf balls

This is the size school bus you will need to use for this experiment

Considering buses come in different sizes, AND have seats in them and other stuff bolted to the walls….and all that takes up space…it is safe to guesstimate that, on average, you can fit about 500,000 into and “empty” school bus.  We suggest using one similar to the bus shown above.

If you want to test this out here is what to do: 

Borrow, rent, or buy a school bus.

Then buy enough used range golf balls for your experiment.  I would suggest a D grade ball as it really does not matter if the used golf balls are in Mint or Refrubished condition…although any golf ball will work.  Make sure you buy them from GolfBall Monster (yes…we have MANY more than 500,000 in stock…at all times), as SHIPPING IS FREE and our prices are the best ANYWHERE.

Then, and this is only a suggestion, get on the TOP of the bus and find a hole through which you can start dropping the balls.  If the bus is on a slight incline, it would help.  Make sure those wheels are chocked!

When you are done you will likely be very proud of your work…and now you have SEVERAL options:

  • Set this up as a roadside attraction and sell tickets.
  • Open up a driving range as you will have PLENTY of golf balls.
  • Empty out enough balls so you can get to the driver’s seat…drive around town and earn a new reputation.
  • Rent the bus out, “as is,” for parties.

Good luck and please send photos of your project.  We will post them on this blog!
