Describe the inside of a ping pong ball without using the words white or smooth

Hollow.

I've never had anything particularly bizarre myself.
Not a winner anymore.

My worst assignment was 'Determine the chemical compound by flame test'.

Basically you're given a bunch of chemicals and you put them in a flame to see what color they burn and then you look up the color.

I'm colorblind.

I failed.

Unless that was a clever joke then I would have thought that you could have told your teacher and you would have gotten off of the hook.

lego is last generation, and lived in a time before fairness and decency.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

To avoid error such as this I had a lab partner (who turned out to also be colorblind). I'm not totally colorblind, nor was my lab partner, but we were both bad enough we couldn't get the right answers.

The teacher held us both after class becuase we bombed the test so bad and made us repeat it. When we came up with the same answers he did cut us slack and made sure the two of us never worked together again.

My colorblindness is bad enough that I cannot get any of those little 'dot' pictures where you have to find the number in the picture. But I can tell the difference between traffic lights.

It had to be a 200 word essay.

On a friken BALL?

The ping pong ball was very very very light.  It bounces very very very high.  It has a very very very dark logo on it.  It is very very very very very very very hollow.  It also bounces.  I like pingpong balls.  They are very very very nice.  etc.

"The texture inside of a ping pong ball is the opposite of rough, just like the outside of it is. It is not black, but looks more like the color of a sheet of printer paper."
