0 Rolling Throught the Bay, with 100,000 Toothpicks

Scott Weaver likes toothpicks. A lot. He likes them more than Rain Man does. He likes them more than a guy who just ate corn on the cob and now has stringy bits lodged in between his teeth. Just watch:

From the artist's website:

"Rolling through the bay is an abstract toothpick sculpture of San Francisco. It has about 100,000 of toothpicks. The amazing part, is that is has four ping pong ball paths that roll through different landmarks of San Francisco. I have spent about 3,000 hours on it over a period of 34 years and the only glue I use is Elmer’s."
This amazing kinetic sculpture is currently on display at The Tinkering Studio at the Exploratorium in San Francisco.
