"Talking nonsense is the sole privilege mankind possesses over the other organisms."
A four-minute clip from Mechanical Principles, a 1930 film by Ralph Steiner, excerpted and set to some new music by VertikalDesign.

The music is "Little Boy," by 3 Liquid Hz.

Mesmerizing!My father's second (part time) job consisted in repairing clocks and watches. As a child, I was fascinated by the way these pieces of machinery worked. I spent hours looking at the different mechanisms, springs, pendulums, weights, cuckoo clocks and many other varieties. Fun.
I've always been fascinated by gears and such, too. I have a copy on my desktop of this animated GIF of a Geneva mechanism that I swiped from Wikipedia, and I look at it all the time.
