  1. I’ve seen rows of dominoes more interesting than this. “Hilarious?” How so?

    …and so it goes. Needs a little ‘red’ but other than that far more fun than dominoes. I am convinved I once saw a perpetual motion machine and failed to buy it due to cost, some $400 in the 70s. I was a bit of a clothes horse then and needed the money. I also drank some (sum?). It was made of wood and steel balls. I wonder if it’s still running?
