PostSubject: Not flying related but entertaining when your not flying!   Wed Mar 25, 2009 12:47 am

A video clip showing a Creme Egg being squashed by an elaborate home-made wrecking device has become an internet sensation on Youtube.

The device, dubbed the 'Rube Goldberg Machine', uses a series of weights, balls, swings and wires which combine in a giant chain reaction to smash the Creme Egg.

It was created as an entry for Cadbury's "Unleash The Goo" competition, in which entrants must find the most creative way to break a Creme Egg.

New Zealander Joseph Herscher took six months to build the contraption using 30 sticks of hot glue, 480 pins and most importantly, according to the credits, the support of "the world's most tolerant flatmates".

To date more than 700,000 people have watched the clip which took 3 days to film consisting of 200 takes.
