Dominoes Made of Dominoes Awesome and very chromatically beautiful. Watch for the hold-outs that refuse to collapse.

Has anybody ever talked at length about the relationship between doing these elaborate domino sculptures and Buddhist sand mandalas? Because looking at this guy's other videos that's what I'm continually reminded of. Cool post.

Reminds me of Seuss's "The Economic Situation Clarified." How timely.

Hey, when the cat in question is this cat, you pretty much let him near the dominoes if he wants to be near the dominoes.

The video of him cleaning stuff up is totally raw.

Wow. It took me a second to realize what I was looking at. It suddenly clicked and my jaw dropped. Incredible.

Very cool!

And OMG, penduluum, that cat had me larfing. I can only imagine what it must be like to live with so vocal a feline.

That was beautiful. And that's also what came to mind for me, penduluum.

Amazing....

but not amazing enough!

30,000 dominoes only gets you dominoes made of dominoes. 5,000,000 dominoes gets you dominoes made of dominoes made of dominoes!

Show me cats made of cats and I'd be happier, but this was still great. Thanks.

Talk to me when he's got 700 billion dominoes.

Yeah, I made that up.

Funny how the dominoes fell in the opposite direction of the wave propagation. You'd think if the wave was moving to the back, the dominoes would also fall to the back. Any physicists in the house?

That was really cool. Ditto on the "JESUS FUCK GET THE CAT OUT OF THERE WHAT ARE YOU THINKING YOU LUNATIC?", though.
