VIDEO: Amazing, Complex Human Powered Rube Goldberg Machine

Some people have a lot of time on their hands. Having said that, at least these guys are doing interesting things with their free time, instead of just playing video games, or watching sports or reading up on what the Kardashian’s are doing to embarrass themselves.

A free-runner named Jason Paul got some guys together to make one of the largest, most complex Rube Goldberg machines that incorporated humans into it, then submitted the video of the master run to Red Bull. Red Bull is a weird drink, so obviously the makers like weird stuff.

What’s a Rube Goldberg machine? A Rube Goldberg machine is a deliberately over-engineered or overdone machine that performs a very simple task in a very complex fashion, usually including a chain reaction. Most of the early ones were small little things that did stuff like set off mouse traps and the like. The machine that Jason Paul and his buddies created is a massive contraption that goes on for several minutes.
