    Are these the ones with the Japanese jingle at the end?
    If so I don't want to see them again, I had that tune in my head for a week the last time I saw them!!

    awesome!

    wow! It reminds me of being a kid again. I used to (try to) make things like that all the time. Of course they weren't quite as spectacular and my motivation was usually "booby-traps". (I'm sadistic like that) Those were the days. :) When I was watching the video I remember the feeling of anticipation of hoping it works out. :p

    Now if only I knew what they were saying.
    My son came home early today and he's all mumbling that jingle.

    p.s. that was my favorite part too devilot.

    For some reason, brassieres come to mind.

    Anyway, when I was young (4-5), I would spend hours building cat traps out of laundry baskets, string, sticks, and food bait when I visited my grandmother. My goal was not to hurt the neighborhood cats, just to be able to pet them. None of the traps worked as intended (well, they all were functional, but there were no stupid cats in the neighborhood, and the smart ones stayed away). But, to me, they seemed as cool as cool could be.

    And now, I love videos like this one, as they remind me of those days. But, back then, I didn't have a funky jingle to go along with my designs.

    wow I liked that!

    Especially the one at the end with the marble in the plastic cup that rolls over the books.

    Honestly i must ask, who has that much spare time to not only design such a contraption, but then to spend the painstaking amount setting it up and perfecting positions for consistency. And then to have that many of them?!?!? Damn :eek:

    Stupid jingle... stupid head.... :mad: Not only did I get it stuck in my head from my watching it, but now I hear the hubby in the background on his computer watching the same clip....

    I like the more intricate ones that looked like they took a lot of thought to design. Very cool!

    I've been thinking about that. How about we put that off until we can figure out what on earth that jingle is saying. I'm not going to be able to do anything else until then :) So, we can start not this Monday, but next Monday?:p
