    Those are called Rube Goldberg machines, defined as "exceedingly complex devices that perform simple tasks in very indirect and convoluted ways."

    This was a small one.

    ---
    That IS a hobby. You know. Making stuff. Sitting on the computer telling others to "get a life" isn`t very creative at all, not to mention a "life" is not just hanging out with some idiots and getting drunk. Which seems to be the epitome of cool. And lifeness.
