Squeezing to hard you are, young jedi. Strong in you is the force.

No...kind of a goopy green slop with a messed up texture, kind of like a fugged up water balloon.

I think tennis balls are the next step, I got given this one for free so it happened to be in the area haha

Take it easy on the tennis ball. You could give yourself tendinitis.

At my old job that happened to someone, the same slimy liquid innards too. Except we had to call the health and safety manager and a cleaning crew in to deal with it :eyeroll: Since we didn't have any WHMIS docs outlining the ingredients in the liquid it got treated like a huge health hazard.

Hooray for huge bureaucracies!

Hey, it gives those guys something to do, other than perhaps go to the yearly safety training course needed in most large companies.

I started rock climbing several years ago and started destroying stress balls. Puny stress balls...

So I started on the hands of salesmen. Much more satisfying, really.
