Looks like they’re escalating the arms race with the Generals.

Won’t somebody please think of the children?!


#3

There should be a law that all Rube Goldberg videos must be done in a single take. Still a cool video, though.


#4

Mr Goldberg would agree. Mr Goldberg might also point out that hitting record should ideally set off said machine.


#5

Very cool contraption shown in that video. Harlem Globetrotters are Kung Fu masters of basketball.


#6

Why all the tight shots where I can’t see what’s happening? Kinda frustrating.


#7

Obviously, the Generals were in charge of the cameras.


#8

Yeah, so damn annoying. You can barely see anything.


#9

I feel that I should point out that I got a Globetrotter’s autograph in the 70s. That Globetrotter was Nate Branch. So there you have it.

You should have to build a separate machine to hit the record button!

. . . i should have to build a separate machine to type this post.
