Pass the Salt

Joseph Herscher of Joseph's Machines  manages to find the most ridiculously difficult way to automate a simple task, just like Ru8be Goldberg did. Only Goldberg's machines were merely committed to paper, while Joseph demonstrates his in fairly deadpan manner in the real world. Here, he automates the task of passing the salt down the table. What's especially strange is that most of the process doesn't involve salt much at all, but requires everything else in the kitchen. Eventually you realize that there are two salt containers, both within reach of the people sitting on either end of the table. But the destination is really of no matter, just enjoy the ride.  (via Tastefully Offensive)
