Mental Floss

Rube Goldberg Tends Bar

Mangesh Hattikudur

While this brilliant Rube Goldberg machine by Joeseph Herscher only makes one type of drink (a Falling Water), every bounce of the ball and whir of the chain makes me long for one that much more. Such a delight to watch! Of course, I'm holding out for the second version, which supposedly channels a Mentos-Coke explosion into refilling your bar nuts and explaining to your wife why you haven't yet come home.
