Best Rube Goldberg Ever

Many of you may or may not know that I teach physics, and this means I have a fondness of all types of nerdery and pseudo science!

If you have not yet seen the world's largest Rube Goldberg machine, you have to check out the link below. Its an okay go video, that they set up in a warehouse. They brought physicists in to design it, and you can see them all at the end of the video when it all finally works and they all go bonkers. The whole take is one long video with no breaks or editing, and it took them almost 70 times to get it all to work.

The question I first asked was 'why is the guy who starts it covered in blood?' You find out at the end!
