Best thing on BB in weeks, THANKS!

The marbles look like they’re having fun.


#4

That was rad! The hand-carved wood bits go really well with the outdoor setting. And was that Stonehenge?


#5

The ones that get stuck and hang around a little know that eventually one of their little buddies will come along to help them continue on the journey.


#6

Well, the 18 inch version.


#7

Yeah, Stonehenge, a castle… You know. Rafting things.


#8

Pretty damn cool.

Although if was gonna go to all that trouble, I’d design it so the marbles picked up speed and mostly kept it.

David St. Hubbins: I do not, for one, think that the problem was that the band was down. I think that the problem may have been, that there was a Stonehenge monument on the stage that was in danger of being crushed by a dwarf. Alright? That tended to understate the hugeness of the object.

Ian Faith: I really think you’re just making much too big a thing out of it.

Derek Smalls: Making a big thing out of it would have been a good idea.
