What Engineers to after they get laid off.

The title is what my email stated that linked to this cool Rube Goldberg contraption. One of the better ones that I've seen over the years.

Re: What Engineers to after they get laid off.

wow, that was elaborate and yes, one of the better ones. i just wish they'd done a little better on the video... was hard to see how a few of those worked. but, all in all, very innovative and fun!

i couldnt find a clip of the one the mythbusters did. it was very elaborate, also. and i found that there's a competition at purdue university for these things: http://planetgreen.discovery.com/vid...-machines.html

and if you think about it, knocking down dominoes is a sort of rube goldberg machine, too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qD4My2Htvvw&feature=fvst
