These things are so awesome! I always wanted to build one.

In 5th grade, we had this invention contest. My concept was a rube-goldberg style alarm clock. My idea was that some series of things would happen and then it would drop a wet sponge on your face. I didn't think this would wake you up, necessarily, so much as motivate you to get out of bed before the sponge drops. Anyway, somebody talked me out of it and instead I invented an automatic spaghetti twirler. Which didn't work out well either, it had way too much horse power and the whole experience turned into a Tim Allen style failure

In 7th grade, my class was required to work in groups to construct a Rube Golderg that represented the fall of the Roman Empire. That was a nice, creative assignment and a good memory.

Now I just remembered that Twitter thread you posted and I started laughing again

Ah, the days when Tim Allen was funny.

It is important to remember, though, that failing on too MUCH horsepower is better than failing by too little.  Widescreen or go home.
