ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
My mother e-mailed this on to me ages ago.
domino topple â‰ Rube Goldberg device
you must be very proud of her
trick setup, not trick shot. where are the masse shots, the rail bounces, any english on the cue ball?
My point was that it’s kinda old news…
But she is pretty hip for someone in her 60’s…
Did you think that this was CNN?
Good point. Better if he sank all the balls without knocking over any of the dominos.
I can only imagine how long that took to set up, time well wasted.
I’m inclined to agree with MMBB and some of the youtubers (!) – this isn’t really a trick shot. Even as a “Mousetrap” stunt, the ball rolling down the cue is impressive, but everything else is just different configurations of the same technique. I’d like to see the balls enter the pockets of their own volition.
The funnyest part is the french: 2 men are discussing how great it is. Towards the end a woman says “all this serves nothing, it’s useless” on what the men answer “c’est con une fille“: “woman are dumb/stupid”.
