Sheer Genius.

I just stumbled across http://www.wildboston.com/item/4687/, and had to share it....
I think you will agree, the work of a genius.

I like to watch the rows of dominoes being toppled. A recent record attempt was sabotaged by a sparrow, which ended up being 'euthanised'.

Good setup, but with ruthless song and voices.

Dear god help us all.
I've got a marble maze thing that does the same sort of deal but it took a very long time to set up (And stayed on the dining room table for months). Please tell me this is 'puter generated.

But it is very cool.

I've always accepted the Honda cog ad as pukka until now, but I just don't believe those tyres. look at the third one -it continues UP the slope after striking the fourth tyre. Surely it would roll back down? And what holds the tyres in position BEFORE they're struck?

There's also something 'odd' about the plank 'through' the car door window. I can't quite work-out how it's supported on the 'departure' side.

As far as I'm aware, the tyres were actually counter-weighted on one side to allow them to roll up the hill in the first place - so whilst the ad may be pukka, the wheels themselves wern't
