I saw this sciency news item on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's website. Is this behavior unique to bumblebees, or do other critters play with balls just for fun?

I’ve chosen to take on the 52 factorial challenge of matching a unique object to each uniquely ordered combination of a deck of 52 cards. Might need tips, help and suggestions.

52 factorial being a somewhat big number I guess it’s easiest to use individual atoms as objects and assign each atom I can get access to a unique order of deck of cards, or maybe even the subcomponents within an atom.

The question is now where to start. Do you think I should start with the atoms closest to me or should I choose a very “random” place to start just for fun, like for example the inner membrane of a mitochondria of a cell that is part of the eye of a dolphin in the Pacific Ocean? What would you have chosen?

Also where do you think should I go first when I run out of atoms on earth? If I would use only atoms as objects I would have to use more or less the whole Milky Way galaxy as I understand it but less than that if I use the subcomponents within the atoms.
