Admittedly, courage acorns ARE good bait

Almost 17 months ago (previously), MetaFilter enjoyed the tale of Biisuke, the ball who bravely saved his ball brothers after they were kidnapped by traversing a Rube Goldberg world full of enemies. Now can Biita and Biigoro return the favor? Find out in the action-packed, also-musical sequel Save Biisuke! Ball Brothers Big Adventure (SLYT).

(The video in the 'previous' post has gone away but it lives on on dailymotion.)

Oh man! Yes! These were done for special New Year's Day versions of Pythagoras Switch for grown-up audiences, and I just happened by complete coincidence to see this year's one get rerun on yesterday morning's episode of the regular show.

OH my GOODNESS these are just SUCH a DELIGHT

These have been a real hit with my kids and others.

Not to spoil anybody's fun at all but those balls are all DEAD, you know.

YES! I love these. Mini McGee even remembers watching the first one, so we've been metafiltering as a family for a while now!

The domino thing at 2:48 seems entirely unreasonable and I feel like it's probably against the laws of physics somehow. I worry that the Rube Goldberg gods will smite them for their hubris.

I just saw this the other day and it is so good.

I just searched this to see if it had already been posted and I see that it has and I'm disappointed that I didn't get to posted while simultaneously pleased that MetaFilter hasn't gone this long without seeing it!
