Favorite Rube Goldberg video:

Person goes down slide and smacks into a wall that leads to more walls falling. Scaring another person down the slide which in turned flings another person off his diving board. Slamming into another person as he falls off the other diving board. When he fell he grabbed the string that a animal was holding on to that lifted the animal into a roller. The roller then rolls down the hill into a wooden wall that falls and pushes a metal globe. The metal globe rolls and rolls into some support beams that fall and scares another person that was working on another slide. He flings up lifting the slide that rolls a ball that was holding the slide bend in place. It rolls down to another person that falls into a whirlpool that was draining. Once he fell it pushes a water tanker forward into a glass globe that rolls into another glass globe. The glass globe then roos down the tunnel around slink corner, and down the ramp on to a beam that lifts a weight that was tired to a person that was working on a waterpark wall that pushes it and makes it fall. The walls then fall hitting a roller that rolls down a big slide that hits a wall. The wall then falls hitting another beam that releases the cord that makes the bandaid fall on the injured person.
