ka ta ko ra suichi
If you're reading this, you're probably not doing anything important anyway. I can't think of a better way to spend the next 12 minutes and 54 seconds of your life than watching this video:



Now if I just knew what that song meant.

Update: Someone out there in the blogosphere knows. It's "pitagora suichi," meaning "pythagorean switch," meaning "rube goldberg machine." Thanks for your comment, anonymous commenter.
Comments:
Some of these are really quite cool! What an awesome way to procrastinate!
 
I'm assuming readers have already seen Honda's Cog spot (video here).

Why yes, that is a Garrison Keillor voiceover at the end.
 
"pitagora suichi" == "pythagorean switch" == "rube goldberg machine"
 
apparently, there is a whole television show based on those cool little machines.

Just another example of the Japanese being way smarter than us.
 
Does anyone find it odd that all of these little Japanese machines are built out of things like Jenga blocks and Morton's salt containers and English pharmacy textbooks? Weird.

But very cool.
 
"apparently, there is a whole television show based on those cool little machines.

Yeah, but wouldn't it be cool if we could vote one of the machines off every week?
 
yeah, but machines can't say stupid things like "I like sal-mon."

*only funny if you actually watch American Idol*
