The Way Things Go .

“Der Lauf der Dinge” or “The Way Things Go” is a movie by the Swiss artist duo Peter Fischli and David Weiss from 1987. They built a Rube Goldberg Machine which is an overengineered apparatus that performs a very simple task in a very complex fashion, usually including a chain reaction. This machine is in a warehouse, about 100 feet long, and incorporates materials such as tires, trash bags, ladders, soap, oil drums, and gasoline. Fire and pyrotechnics are used as chemical triggers. The film is nearly 29 minutes and 45 seconds long. I watched it all and i love it so im also posting the whole thing. Light up a cigarette, lean back and enjoy.
By the way – didnt you dream of building such a machine when you were a kid?
