Re: How to build an elevator?

Now Elliot,it may seem like we are picking on you, when in fact it is just our way of showing our affection for you. If it weren't for you, my roof wouldn't be 18" taller. Thanks and be safe out on the road. There are a lot of crazies out there, and as soon as I get out, there will be one more.

My life finally has meaning! I can die happy now! And Reprobate shall become Chief Holy Potentate of the Royal Society For Picking-On-Elliot-In-Eternity! Wooooooohoooooo!

I'm glad Millicent is leading by an Acceptable Example. Raising a roof is easy!
If we don't all rain away by tomorrow, I'll try to get out to Millicent and take a snapshot of the folding bunks -- that you haven't seen yet.

2008 is gonna be great!

Folding bunks? Are they going to operate by Kinetics?

Why not? I'm thinking it would only take something like this:

(I wonder, could that be an insult?)

In fairness, that's not my mechanism -- it's the drive train of a friend's Kinetic Racing Sculpture. My own mechanisms are rarely that neat.

If ya wanna make SURE you clinch the Rube Goldberg Grand Poohbah Prize, you need to be able to power the whole rig via a hamster in a treadwheel.

Elliot, I've heard of getting your back scratched, but that's just a little too much.

(De Sade would also be proud)
