                    If you have one of these from HF #94773





                    please check the wiring.....I found the wires on the socket were just wraped around the screws ...and NOT tightened at all..

                    Could not get the picture to show up.

                        Not quite the same kind of Goldberg but my wife and I saw her play them a couple of Sundays ago

                        Forty plus years and I still have ten toes, ten fingers and both eyes. I must be doing something right.

                          While obviously they had too much time on their hands, the "Goldberg" aspect is lost with all of the camera cuts and jumpy editing. They could have started the 'machine' at multiple points throughout with all of the cuts. Somehow I doubt it was a 'single take' machine like the Honda commercial.

                          Though I highly approve of the use of a slinky in a machine.

                            Hmm.
                            I guess since editing was possible, it wasn't clever after all?
                            Who cares. It was still very cool. To me, the "Goldberg aspect" has nothing (well much less anyway) to do with whether it is a 100% trigger success from start to finish as the creative use of different things in interesting C&E chains. It's art man!
                            Besides, I have a feeling that while they were working out that one, they probably had several 100% successful runs.

                            By the way, last I heard the Honda ad was actually two complete setups due to the size constraint of the room, thus actually two takes, plus the smoothest transition edit that Honda money can buy. That ad was still very cool despite this revelation. I'd like to see an encore or three.

                              When that clip was about 1/2 way through I was begining to think Evan and You set it up.
