LEGO Great Ball Contraption (GBC)

A conspiracy to destroy the productivity of the United States (or something like that).

LEGO Great Ball Contraption (GBC) Layout 2012.9

So here's this video that someone posted a week ago (I recommend the video).  It runs 7 minutes long.  And it was watched 3 million times during the first week.  So that's 21 million minutes (35,000 hours (14,500+ days (~40 years))) spent watching that video, in just the first week.  That's an average of 2000+ people viewing this video at any given time throughout the week.  That's +100,000 views since I first watched the video earlier today.

And according to the video, it took ~600 hours to produce the Rube  Goldberg device in the video.  So that's a viewing payback of almost 60:1 in  just the first week.
