Last night I took my daughter, who I can’t believe is 22, on a date for dinner after she got off work. Besides the usual “how was your day” and a discussions about anthrax, we talked about Rube Goldberg machines. Many months ago I was shown the Rube Goldberg Machine, This Too Shall Pass, which I thought was pretty amazing. My daughter told me The Athlete Machine was even better because of a car drifting through the spiral of tires.

Both are amazing but I think “This Too Shall Pass” holds true to the Rube Goldberg theme due to the fact it does not require human interactions, except one human body, to trigger the next point. Let me know which is your favorite.
