This Guy Made a Googol to 1 Gear Reduction Machine Entirely Out of LEGO

 

The Finnish madman behind Brick Experiment Channel built a crazy Googol:1 gear reduction using 186 LEGO gears of various kinds.

The build was inspired by Daniel de Bruin’s “Universe’s biggest gear reduction” and the rotation time for the last gear would take 52433879932503535381614991275498187972589101825233846406570841889117043121149897330595482546 years to complete once!
 
Formula for the gear ratio:

24/8 * 40/8 * 40/8 * 40/8 * 60/1 * 12/1 * 168/1 * (140 / 8 + 1) * 141 * 20/12 * (40/8)^20 * 20/12 * (24/1)^20 * 56/16 * (36/1)^10 * (40/1)^18 * 15/9 * 56/1

Michael Jordan’s Game-Worn Air Jordan 1s Sold For Record $560,000 at Auction

Michael Jordan Air Jordan 1

The last two episodes of the ten-part “The Last Dance” documentary are set to air tonight, and thanks to it, Michael Jordan fever has reached new heights. Over a decade-and-a-half after #23 laced up his Jordans for the last time, MJ is still setting records as a pair of his game-worn shoes has set the new mark for the most valuable kicks ever sold at auction. Though Sotheby’s opened the auction a week ago and expected the “Chicago” Jordan 1s from 1985 to go for around $150,000, the results dunked on that estimate with a closing bid of $560,000.

This particular pair of Jordans, which were sold by collector Jordan Geller (nice name, by the way), was rocked by Michael in his standout rookie season and are signed by the GOAT himself.

Also, just a reminder that if you want a pair of Chicago 1s for yourself, though they won’t run you a half a million, prices on the original AJ1 style are currently skyrocketing on the aftermarket.
