Marble Run - マーブル・ラン


Marble Run(マーブル・ラン)

女: Check out this cool video of a Rube Goldberg marble run.
男: No! Not yet.

男: I've always known I'm doomed to eventually become one of those people who builds elaborate marble runs in their garage.
男: I can feel the pull.
男: So satisfying.

男: I just want to do as many other things as I can before I give in and disappear into that world.

女: So you know where you're going to end up, but you're trying to take a really interesting and circuitous path to get there.
男: Exactly. Bounce around, maybe go off a few jumps.

Alt-text: I have so many plans. It would incorporate a Galton board, a Ranque-Hilsch marble vortex tube, and a compartment lined with pinball bouncers with a camera-and-servo Maxwell's Demon that separated the balls into fast and slow sides.

Ruling Out - 除外


Ruling Out(除外)

男: So far our astronomy group has published studies ruling out the existence of Earthlike stars, exoplanets in our solar system, habitable-zone quasars, stars with subsurface oceans, and tectonically active black holes.

Science got way easier when we realized you were allowed to do studies just to rule stuff out.
