Rube Goldberg Has Big Plans....

...and they're surprisingly uncomplicated.

I'm torn. I want more needless steps, but I'm impatient for Hitler to suffer.
Comics legend Reuben "Rube" Goldberg, who didn't invent the delicious sandwich, but did get an award named after him, came up with these devices.

Once the ball I drop rolls down the ledge to knock the milk over to shrink the string to move the sword to trigger the guillotine to slice the sausage, which will swing into the door that moves the sickle to pop the balloon that will startle the bird who will fly off the scale which wil cause the foot to squish the squid to squirt the ink into my fountain pen, I will write a thank you note to Olaf for this. Because today is my birthday, and Hitler-punching is really the best present I could ever ask for.
