Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted)

This streaming video shows a Rube Goldberg machine that is used to squish a Cadbury Creme Egg. It is an entry in Cadbury’s “Unleash The Goo” competition, in which entrants must find the most creative way to break a creme egg. By the way, a keen eye will notice that the egg unravels out of its foil wrapping before it is smashed. The music is by the Jews Brothers Band. [2:35].

    To waste a creme egg like that, there should be a law.

    My wife’s response to the question is the correct one:
    “Eat it!”

    Amazing, brilliant, it would more useful if the egg fall on a hot frying pan…
