Rube Goldberg

Posted by tb4

I want to send out congratulations to my alma mater Purdue University on winning the 21st annual national Rube Goldberg Machine Contest. This is Purdue's third win in the last 4 years. This years task was to assemble a hamburger consisting of no less than one precooked meat patty, two vegetables and two condiments, sandwiched between two bun halves. The 17-member Purdue team used 156 steps in its machine, which had a global travel theme. The machine's journey started at Purdue and continued around the world to England, France, Germany, China, Mexico and ended back at a tailgating party at Purdue, where the hamburger was made.
