Your ball is within the atmosphere, and has
this drag, for one. For another, it gets
STOPPED shortly after it starts! Third, we
stated they had to be LARGE objects heading
for each other, and your ball does not qualify!
Present an example as we asked. NOT small,
NOT stopped almost as soon as starting, and
with NO artificial finite limit in time.
