Favorite Rube Goldberg video:

Back in the day, there was a VERY famous basketball player named Michael Jordan. He was beating every other team he played against. And it was the last game of the season. So the last 10 seconds of the game and he shoots a half court shot and scores. So, to celebrate he wanted to play a quick game against his own teammates, to see who was the truly the best player on the team. The first matches were going ok, until he was going against one of his best friends. Scottie Pippen. He was struggling at first and then he went in for the slam dunk and Scottie came in and he pushed Michael to the ground. When he fell he got a few bruises on his leg, but he fractured his pinky and dislocated his collarbone. He was tired and went home to get some rest. The next day he couldn’t pour his bowl of cereal. So he needs our help to pour it for him!
