The world's largest rubber band, Sphere
Waul has spent the last six years carefully wrapping
and linking and stretching rubber bands of various
sizes into the ball shape. The Guinness Book of
World Records declared it the world's largest rubber
band ball in 2008.

On Thursday, Waul will say goodbye to his creation.
A team from Ripley's Believe it or Not will come to his
driveway with a crane and haul the 6-foot, 7-inch tall,
9,032-pound behemoth away. The ball will eventually
be displayed in a far-off museum yet to be
determined, so folks can marvel at Waul's obsession.
