SoulPancake wanted to see how people would act if you put two strangers in a ball pit. Would they find something to talk about? Would they become fast friends? So a ball pit was erected and people entered, ready to meet a new friend. Prompted by questions on some of the balls in the pit, the strangers quickly learned about their ball pit companion, sometimes discovering amazing and quirky things they had in common.

The experiment shows that regardless of where you came from, you can learn new and interesting things from strangers. We all have threads that tie us together.
