STEP LIST
1. A CAR MOVES DOWN A ROAD (INCLINED PLANE) AND TRANSFERS ENERGY TO A BOULDER IN THE ROAD
2. THE BOULDER DROPS THROUGH THE ROAD AND TRANSFERS ENERGY THROUGH A STRING AND SCREW EYE (PULLEY) TO A PIN (WEDGE) HOLDING UP A HOSE

23. RISING ELEVATOR PULLS A PIN (WEDGE) OUT ON THE CRANE
24. CRANE’S LOAD UNWINDS (WHEEL AND AXLE) TRANSFERRING ITS ENERGY TO SEYMOR
25. SEYMOR FALLS ON THE (LEVER) OF A MOUSE TRAP
26. THE LEVER RELEASES THE (WEDGE) OF A MOUSE TRAP
27. THE WEDGE RELEASES THE (WHEEL AND AXLE) OF A MOUSE TRAP PULLING A STRING
28. THE STRING PASSES THROUGH AN SCREW EYE (PULLEY) AND REMOVES A BLOCK (WEDGE) UNDER THE HOPPER’S RAMP
29. HOPPER LOAD (GOLF BALL) MOVES DOWN RAMP (INCLINED PLANE) OF HOPPER
30. BALL FREE FALLS TO THIRD FLOOR AND INTO A SERIES OF RAMPS (INCLINED PLANES)
31. BALL PUSHES STRING (WEDGE) ACROSS PATH ACTIVATING THE MEDIUM LAUNCHER (WHEEL AND AXLE)
32. MEDIUM SPHERE MOVES DOWN THE DISTRIBUTOR (V-SHAPED INCLINED PLANE)
33. MEDIUM SPHERE FREE FALLS FROM DISTRIBUTOR, BASED ON DIAMETER OF SPHERE, AND DOWN RAMPS (INCLINED PLANES)
34. MEDIUM SPHERE FREE FALLS TO THE SECOND FLOOR AND ACTIVATES THE ETD (ENERGY TRANSFER DEVICE) ON ITS WAY TO THE CRANE HOPPER
35. THE ETD (WHEEL AND AXLE) ROTATES PUSHING A GOLF BALL CONNECTED TO A STRING OFF ITS PERCH
36. A PIN (WEDGE) CONNECTED TO THE STRING RELEASES BALL BEARINGS INTO THE BEARING WHEEL (WHEEL AND AXLE)
37. THE BEARING WHEEL ROTATES TIGHTENING A STRING ACTIVATING THE SMALL LAUNCHER (WHEEL AND AXLE)
38. SMALL SPHERE MOVES DOWN THE DISTRIBUTOR (V-SHAPED INCLINED PLANE)
39. SMALL SPHERE FREE FALLS FROM DISTRIBUTOR, BASED ON DIAMETER OF SPHERE, AND DOWN RAMPS (INCLINED PLANES)
40. SMALL SPHERE FREE FALLS TO SECOND FLOOR AND DOWN A RAMP (INCLINED PLANE)
41. SMALL SPHERE DROPS THROUGH AN OPENING IN RAMP AND FALLS ON THE (LEVER) OF A MOUSE TRAP
42. THE LEVER RELEASES THE (WEDGE) OF A MOUSE TRAP
43. THE WEDGE RELEASES THE (WHEEL AND AXLE) OF A MOUSE TRAP PULLING A STRING
44. STRING ACTIVATES THE LARGE LAUNCHER (WHEEL AND AXLE) ON THE THIRD FLOOR
45. LARGE SPHERE MOVES DOWN DISTRIBUTOR (V-SHAPED INCLINED PLANE)
46. LARGE SPHERE FREE FALLS FROM DISTRIBUTOR, BASED ON DIAMETER OF SPHERE, AND DOWN RAMPS (INCLINED PLANES)
47. LARGE SPHERE FREE FALLS TO THE SECOND FLOOR AND DOWN RAMPS (INCLINED PLANES) INTO CRANE’S HOPPER BOX (WHEEL AND AXLE)
48. HOPPER ARM ROTATES WHICH RELEASES A LARGE SPHERE DOWN A RAMP (INCLINED PLANE)
49. LARGE SPHERE FREE FALLS TO FIRST FLOOR AND DOWN A SERIES OF RAMPS (INCLINED PLANES)
50. LARGE SPHERE TRANSFERS ENERGY TO A POST (WHEEL AND AXLE)
51. POST FALLS ON THE (LEVER) OF A MOUSE TRAP
52. THE LEVER RELEASES THE (WEDGE) OF A MOUSE TRAP
53. THE WEDGE RELEASES THE (WHEEL AND AXLE) OF A MOUSETRAP PULLING A STRING
54. THE STRING PULLS ON THE WHEEL BARROW (WHEEL AND AXLE) DUMPING ITS LOAD
55. THE LOAD MOVES DOWN A RAMP (INCLINED PLANE) AND INTO A HOPPER (FIRST CLASS LEVER)
56. DEPRESSION OF THE HOPPER LIFTS HOPPER ARM
57. AN EXTENSION ON THE HOPPER ARM TRANSFERS ITS ENERGY TO A GAG DONUT
58. DONUT MOVES DOWN RAMP (INCLINED PLANE) AND STRIKES SEYMOR / BARRACADE (WHEEL AND AXLE)
59. ROTATION OF THE BARRACADE PUSHES AMBULANCE DOWN A SHORT RAMP (INCLINED PLANE)
60. AMBULANCE FALLS ON THE (LEVER) OF A MOUSE TRAP
61. THE LEVER RELEASES THE (WEDGE) OF A MOUSE TRAP
62. THE WEDGE RELEASES THE (WHEEL AND AXLE) OF A MOUSE TRAP PULLING A STRING
63. THE STRING CAUSES THE APPLE SUPPORT SHAFT (WHEEL AND AXLE) TO ROTATE
64. THE APPLE SUPPORT DROPS ALLOWING THE APPLE TO FREE FALL
65. STRING ATTACHED TO APPLE, THROUGH AN SCREW EYE (PULLEY), PULLS CURTAIN OPEN EXPOSING SEYMOR’S SAD CONDITION
66. STRING ATTACHED TO CURTAIN PULLS OUT PIN (WEDGE) ALLOWING MEDI-DISK TO DROP DOWN THE MEDIC BOARD (INCLINED PLANE)
67. MEDI-DISK FALLS ON (LEVER)
68. LEVER RELEASES SMALL SPHERE DOWN RAMP (INCLINED PLANE)
69. SMALL SPHERE KNOCKS A POST ONTO THE (LEVER) OF A MOUSE TRAP
70. THE LEVER RELEASES THE (WEDGE) OF A MOUSE TRAP
71. THE WEDGE RELEASES THE (WHEEL AND AXLE) OF A MOUSE TRAP PULLING ON A STRING
72. THE STRING PULLS OUT A SUPPORT (WEDGE) HOLDING UP A MASS
73. A STRING ATTACHED TO THE FALLING MASS PASSES THROUGH AN SCREW EYE (PULLEY) AND IS CONNECTED TO “DAS BOOT” (WHEEL AND AXLE) CAUSING IT TO RISE RAPIDLY
74. A STRING (WEDGE) IS RELEASED WHEN SEYMOR GETS KICKED ALLOWING HIM TO FALL FORWARDS
75. SEYMOR (WHEEL AND AXLE) DROPS ONTO BANDAGE APPLICATOR AND A BANDAGE IS APPLIED!!!

HOWEVER

TO SEE THAT THE BANDAGE WAS APPLIED
WE HAD TO ADD A FEW MORE STEPS THAT DON’T COUNT


• BANDAGE APPLICATOR PLUNGER PUSHES DOWN ON A LEVER
• LEVER PULLS OUT A WEDGE
• MASS MOVES DOWN INCLINED PLANE
• A STRING ATTACHED TO THE MASS PULLS SEYMOR UP TO VIEW 
