Students Compete To Build Craziest Rube Goldberg Contraptions


Rube Goldberg Contest



” There were more mad scientists than normal at COSI Columbus Saturday morning. 

  Eight high schools – including six from Ohio – sent their Rube Goldberg teams to complete a simple task: Zip a zipper. But in Rube Goldberg fashion, their goal was to include as many extra steps as possible to make the zipper move. 

“A Rube Goldberg machine is a series of different machines doing a very simple job but in a very complex way,” said Reno Sith, one of the West High School competitors. Goldberg was an  early 20th century cartoonist known for drawing elaborate, complicated machines that resulted in everyday tasks being finished in a comical way. 

The regional competition was won by Columbia Central High School in Brooklyn, Michigan. Columbus’ Centennial High School placed second. Other area high schools included Metro, Beechcroft, Reynoldsburg’s eStem Academy, and West. “


    Continued  … LOL … The Rube Goldberg way of taking a simple task and making as difficult as possible reminds us present day government … think about it . The difference being that Rube Goldberg inspired creations are funny were disfunctional government is not .

2nd Amendment Sunday – An Illinois Pastor Calls For Kids To Create ‘Assault Pop-Tarts’






” “Assault pop-tarts” and “combat cupcakes” was the call to action by Grace-Gospel Fellowship Church in Bensenville, Illinois.  This past Sunday Pastor Kirkwood held a contest for the children of his church where they were encouraged to come up with the best 2nd amendment themed pastries they could imagine.  Winners were given gift cards and toy assault rifles.  Pastor Kirkwood explained the event in a Facebook post:

2nd Amendment Sunday is here at Grace Gospel Fellowship, Bensenville. Join us as we lay out the Biblical doctrines of self-defense and Liberty. Our Jr. Church will respond to the latest absurdities in the news of “toy gun” buy back programs by eunuch preachers and suspending elementary children for assault fingers, pop-tarts and cupcakes.”
