When I was about 10 and after watching The Absent-Minded Professor and seeing the scene where the basketball players where able to jump 20 feet in the air I got the bright idea of boiling down a couple of SuperBalls and sticking them to my Converse All-Stars. Oh Yeah. Big mistake. For some reason it didn't work. SuperBalls do melt and when boiled down (to the point that they stick to pot) they do smell up the whole house.
