Laying Bricks Like Dominoes

Bricklayers in Teralba, New South wales, Australia, capped a wall with perfectly-laid bricks, using a domino fall.  I understand the first fall, although I couldn't understand why they did it. Then the second fall comes back around, and whoa! How did they do that? On Twitter, @neconocc gave us a graphic that helps to make it clear.

It's pretty darn cool to watch, but I don't see any advantage to laying bricks the old-fashioned way. S till, if the purpose was to make a viral video, they did well. (via Metafilter)

I'm sure they just did it for fun. The time taken to set it all up so precisely would make it a pretty inefficient way to cap a wall. And presumably afterwards they had to lift each block and put mortar under it anyway. But it was fun while it lasted!
