In the game of bowls, a small heavy melamine ball (bowl) is bowled down a perfectly flat green lawn at such a pace that it will come to rest next to a smaller white ball (jack). Rather than following a straight line, the bowl takes a long slow gentle curve to reach its destination.

One of the sides of the bowl is slighter heavier than the other, it has bias so that as the bowl slows down there is a pull towards that side. The bowl literally curves around until it comes to a stop.
