Page-turning Rube Goldberg contraption

In case you've missed it, here is a video of a REAL Rube Goldberg machine designed to turn the page of a newspaper. The creator, Joseph Herscher, must have really studied Goldberg's drawings because the ridiculous contraption incorporates, falling balls, flames, a tipped vase, strings, a flyswatter, a live hamster, and a dozen other household items. It's very authentic, if I can use that term here.

Learn more about Joseph Herscher on his web site.
