Purdue Rube Goldberg Machine
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Rube Goldberg Machines!
The 2011 Purdue University Rube Goldberg machine shattered the world record for most steps ever successfully completed by such a machine.
In 244 steps the "Time Machine" traces the history of the world from Big Bang to the Apocalypse before accomplishing the assigned everyday task of watering a flower.
The record has been sanctioned by the Guinness Book of World Records and the World Records Academy.
