It seemed as though there was at least a couple of sweary nights leading up to this too.

Starry, starry night.
Paint your palette blue and grey,
Look out on a summer's day,
With eyes that know the darkness in my..oh shit, no, no, no NOOO! Stop...motherfu....


Sigh.

Starry, starry night.
Paint your palette blue and grey,....

I enjoyed it. Particularly the thrown domino at the end.

Ha! Loved that! Imagine the planning and patience and perseverence that went into it. And feeling the thrill at the end when it works. Fun!

I really appreciate the documentation of the errors. Every time one started I got a sympathetic *oh crap* cringe. I would have expected a lot more of them!

The thrown domino was really cool, but intended or to trigger a failed chain?

Porpoise, I assumed that thrown domino was to trigger an failed chain. I liked that part.

Really fun! I can't imagine how this was planned and how the builder knew the layout would create the effect that it did, that is boggling! Plus, the patience and precision. Thanks, merelyglib.

That is pretty crazy. Kinda reminds me of the sandpainters I heard about, who would always break up their paintings after making them.

I suspect he gets some of his patience from his cat.
