Rube Goldberg Would have Loved this one

FTLComm - Tisdale - April 18, 2000
Before it rained this unlikely contraption drove by yesterday. There was a cartoonist, popular in the 50s who used to create monsterous machines that accomplished some trivial task, his name was Rube Goldberg and when I saw this thing doddling down the street yesterday I immediately thought of him. This is, no doubt, what he could have done, with the concept of a ladder. Actually this rig probably is pretty handy and definitely safer then some of the ladders I have fallen off of, but it does have a designer's sense of humour wrapped up in this funny device.
