        Well, as so many others noted within the youtube comments, “so this is what retired engineers do with their time (and money)”. I don’t know if they’re actually retired or a professional engineer but still … It would take me five lifetimes to come up with the time and ingenuity to make something like this (not to mention a few more lifetimes to save up for a place to put it in).
