God bless Rube Goldberg. Oh, sorry, the word "rube" is offensive to bumpkins and hicks (according to another recent thread). I won't do it again [Razz]

Hi All:

I love these "perpetual motion" machines (especially when they don't do anything). It's very well done.

Menolly: Don't worry too much about the guy who keeps losing his head. The machine provides him a new one in short order. [Big Grin]

True, but just as soon as he gets it set to the right color and used to his new face, *BAM* off it goes. Sad, that's all I'm saying. [Smile]

This machine is truly mesmerizing.
