Millions and millions of dominoes--4,079,381 to be exact. This isn"t the whole run though--that took about two hours.

seen this 2 years ago, still wondering why people could watch the full 2 hours of it. In my opinion the only amusing part was the slow motion part, due to water.

... reminds me of the shot sparrow haha XD

@ the `1100 man hours` post...it would have taken MUCH longer than that, think about it, they also had to figure out which color domino to place here and there...besides you gave none of your "math" with it, whatd you do? see how long it takes to set up a domino and take it times 4 million?

I`m going to take the liberty to say that if you think this is stupid and useless, you suck.

First off, you`re insulting something for being usless while you`re on I-Am-Bored watching videos.

Second, if this is useless, then so is almost all television, internet, and actually just about everything in the world, because it`s just another form of entertainment.

Finally, if you had the sense to read the description, which I really hope you did, then you would have known it would be "useless" knocking over of dominoes, so why did you watch it?

If you`re going to be a dumbass, please do it silently, thanks.

Yet another blatantly wrong link description. I am getting sick of this... I`ll just drop it by declaring that every link description IAB ever had and ever will have is wrong. This has been proven. This is law.

Now that thats out of the way... Domino records are easy to beat. Stacking them is easier than it looks. I could beat this record myself if I had the time, money and reason to do it.

It was impressive all the same but I`ve already seen it. The video is a repost and I think the this record has been broken since.

It`s was done in the netherlands, but students from all over the world helped. They do it every year or so... They have special devices to keep all of it from falling (so if you trip a stone only a section will fall, not the whole structure).

That would have sucked poo if the night before one of the janators when in there, unknowing of the event that would take place the next day and thought it would be cool to "push" just one of the dominos... Its kinda like the button that says "dont push". Ya know its so wrong but you also know it will feel soooooo good.lol

Always nice to see something from the Netherlands making it on IAB.
They actually do this every year, with a lot of people, mostly students. And about the "accidents", this one time a bird got in the hall, and they shot it, which was quite a big thing in the news here. Shooting animals is not allowed in the Netherlands, weed is :P

"and why the hell did the guy and the girl freak out like that, like they found the cure for cancer or smthin..."

I don`t know, if I`d spent that much time working on something (even something useless) I`d probably be nervous it wasn`t going to work and when it did I`d freak out, too.

They should have set the dominoes up according to some kind of theme instead of just lining them up to knock each other over...

I agree with krembil. All of that time spent could have gone to something more useful. Dominos are just plain lame.

that was unreal. I would love to have seen that in person. Not even for the dominos, but the fact that they actually made drawings and etc with them was just epic.

respect :-)

did the maths and it would have taken about 1100 man-hours to do. Assuming it`s one person working say 10 hours a day, that`s 110 days.
