If I would have took the time to build something like that, I doubt I would as I imagine it can be a little frustrating. Great shot.

I seen the video, and my goodness, that's just amazing! You must have one heck of a lot of patience with this stuff!

I just subscribed to you over at YouTube, and I'm adding you to my DeviantArt watchlist as I'm typing this.

My first thought when I saw this was, "Jeez, someone has too much time on their hands..." :XD:

Wow, very impressive! 17 hours of work on this really paid off! :') haha dominoes...I can barely get five up, so you being able to put up 3000 is beyond me. Congrats on the Daily Deviation-you deserved it! ^^

LOL! This goes out to all the great maths students out there! Revising for an exam is like a stack of dominoes: It takes for ever to get all right and ready for the exam, but when you get all your results from your exams and pass wonderfully, all the information about that subject can fall out of your head and you can relax and fall over.
