An evening pause: I haven’t posted one of these in awhile, and this one is a doozy, including three new US domino records: largest domino field, largest domino structure, and largest overall domino project in America. It took 19 builders from 5 countries 7 days (over 1,200 combined hours) to build it.

As I have noted before, I welcome suggestions for evening pauses. If you have suggested before, please suggest again! And if you have never done so but have something you want to suggest, comment here (without mentioning the suggestion itself) and I will provide you info on how to submit your suggestion.

    Hello, I have an idea you might have used before for the evening pause, how should I suggest it?
    Thank you.

    Very satisfying video. Please send me the info so that I can suggest content for An Evening Pause.

    One can have cats around such things, but not dogs. Or maybe Japanese dogs are better trained. This would go in slow motion on Mars.

    Impressive, a truly first world past time activity.

    I wonder how it would work if under each domino there were a drop of glue?

    I have a couple of suggestions for your Evening Pause list.
