Reminiscing about childhood games last night, my friend Arthur wondered out loud how marbles are made. Nick and I googleraced to find the answer, and (unsurprisingly) both ended up finding the same bit of video.
‘How It’s Made‘ is surely one of the most interesting series on Discovery (perhaps beaten by Mythbusters). The marble video caused us to go on a mini knowledge quest, in which we learned how many other things were made. Golf balls, bubblegum, jawbreakers all have extrusion in common with marbles (though are fractionally less cool), while filing cabinets are about as interesting as they deserve to be. Aren’t the internets brilliant?
