  Joel Waul's ball already is made up of more than 300,000 bands of different sizes and he plans on adding 2,000lb more once the material is delivered to his home.

   'I would like people to say I had the world's largest rubber band ball ever and that they probably couldn't break the record at all years from now after I'm gone,' Joel told the Sun newspaper.
