You do not even know what you are talking about: we needn't do any such thing, the original is a problem about cardinals, not ordinals, and cardinals are about bijections. Not to mention that, even if we did work with ordinals, we'd just get sharper answers.
But you won't get it, you are too busy finding and playing the crank/anti-crank wars, the crusades of your ego, while neglecting the difference between parroting the received view and an argument, and between a rational discussion and your primary school ad hominem, offenses and, eventually, the pure noise. -- You are just yet another idiot: nothing uncommon, nothing interesting, you have just now definitely lost the right to waste my time.
Indeed, back to us, and on a more general note, it's amazing how many people in this world just cannot think. In this regard, debunking the "eventually every ball is removed" looks very promising to me as better than a Turing test to demarcate people who think from those who don't...
