Chain Reaction Sends A 2,672 Marble Army To Destroy A Wooden Castle

This is a marble run designed and built by Ortwin Grüttner that begins with a single marble running down a couple ramps and tubes before setting off a 2,672 marble chain reaction to destroy a wooden castle. I love stuff like this. I think it's-- "Because you have the mind of a six year old?" I was going to say five, but it means the world to me that you think I'm maturing. I want to make you proud. I also want to make a voodoo doll of you that I can poke at night to wake you up when I can't sleep. "Why would you do that?" So I know I'm not the only one who can't sleep. "Um, what?" Our relationship is complicated, I get it.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Gregory C, who agrees marbles and wooden blocks are the original recipe for a kick-ass good time.

    What did we learn here today?

    To never place your shitty buildings next to a hill of marbles.

  • GeneralDisorder

    This is why old world castles were either build on a hill or a hill was built for them.

    I dont see the connection, this has nothing to do with food

  • Beard

    Cool.

  • ATAVU5

    That was pretty boring

  • Ollie Williams

    Skip to 1:30 for the action.

  • 1:40 for the Money Shot (TM)

  • Big Dog on Krampus

    1:45 for the refractory period

  • Deplorable Erik Dee

    Maybe we could redo the soundtrack to heavy metal of some kind. Maybe the Trooper from Iron Maiden?

  • Mark

    The bugle sounds, the charge begins
    But on this battlefield no one wins
    The smell of acrid smoke and horse's breath
    As I plunge on into certain death

  • Deplorable Erik Dee

    The charge of the light brigade... love it!
