big paper ball

St Paul is known for allot of things: cold winters, being nice, and snow 50 miles high on the side of the road. Well, they can add the World’s Largest Paper Ball to their cities list of good things. The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency said a 426-pound wad of paper created to represent the state’s waste has been awarded a Guinness World Record.
The paper ball, which measured 9 feet, 7 inches tall and 32.2 feet around, was dubbed the world’s largest ball of paper by Guinness. No one had ever done this kind of thing before so they are trailblazers.
The ball was held together with a paper mesh rather than glue or tape to comply with the record-keeping organization’s guidelines.
If you want to see the ball you cannot because it has since been recycled, the organization said.
