Dominoes Suck: World’s Largest Stick Bomb Chain Reaction

To break the world record of the largest stick bomb chain reaction, Tim Fort (warning: this link will make your eyes bleed) built a montage of 2,250 sticks. He then set the apparatus off and caught the whole thing on tape. Check it out:

  1. How the heck is there enough energy from the first flipping madness to continue throughout the whole run?

    The video is cool, but it only looks as though these are all simple tongue depressors. No stored energy. No springiness. No potential.

  3. The record is now 3200 sticks. Whoo, hoo!

    BTW, there is stored energy in the tongue depressors. They're woven in a basket weave which causes them to flex out of shape and thus store up elastic potential energy which converts to kinetic energy when one stick is removed…
