Yep, after 6 years in the ocean the words are still readable...

How did he know what number to text if it's covered in black

You wouldn't text "I want to be a super hero" to a number where you're not sure what you're dealing with. You'd say "hey this is weird but, I found this softball with your number on it" it wouldn't be a tinder pickup line

Well it does say permanent...

Maybe the guy pulled it out of the water the night after she threw it and took 6 years to work up the nerve to call her. If so, this should probably be on /r/sadcringe

"oh my lol," god has left us, and he's not coming back
15 Nov 2017 02:22 - +433
Oh my lol

I could believe this.

Where does it say “cute guys text me”...? All I see on it are her name and number.. I call Farva’s favorite restaurant on this.

This is somewhat plausible

"I met my boyfriend on Tinder but I'm embarrassed about it so I'm making this shit up. I know it's only been a week but I can't wait to make him tell this story at our wedding."

I mean, that could be a photo she took of the ball 6 years ago, before she threw it into the sea.

This person got their phone in eastern Kentucky

Nope. Someone found this ball the next day after it was thrown into the water. It ended up in a bin somewhere and was forgotten for 6 years. Anyone who has accidentally left a softball in the back yard for the winter would know they don't hold up this well. The robust stitching gives it away.

Well she could have thrown it into the sea, and it washed straight back on shore when the tide came in, and then just sat under a rock or something until it was found. Isn't that wild of a story.

This reminds me of the time I moved to a new city and started hanging around with these kids that played baseball. This kid, Benny, knocked the ball into this old guys backyard... He had a man eating dog, so we couldn't get it back. I told the guys that I had a ball and stole one from my stepdad. I didn't know it at the time, but that ball was signed by Babe Ruth!! Well, we lost it of course and spent days trying to figure out how to get it back from the beast. In the end, it all worked out, though!

But wouldn't the writing on the ball have faded a little after being in the ocean for six years?
15 Nov 2017 03:05 - +11
Entirely possible. Unlikely but possible.

Where was it flung into the water and where did it end up?

I loaded 10 soda bottles with notes, sealed them, rented a plane and flew 20 miles off the coast of Daytona Beach. Tossed them all out the window and waited. About 3 days later I started getting letters. All of them washed up on the beach about 5 miles south. One asshole even sent one letter from Chicago, saying he found it in Lake Erie. End of experiment.

Bitch didnt reply at the end

“oh my lol.” Are there people that really communicate like this?
15 Nov 2017 05:47 - +2
It's not impossible if it got stuck in the mud or something. I had someone call me about by discgolf driver 9 years after it hit a tree and bounced into a river. Permanent marker really does stick unless there are abrasive forces in action.
