  3. tssss.... Cooper Green : he's Belgian, and he speaks dutch (or flemish as we call it) - & not german : we kicked 'em out in 1945 (thanks to some brits & yanks - k ?)

    ps : i'm not proud of that thing there, though : he does not harm anyone doing that, he's prob a bit autistic, no ?

  4. I kept thinking they would show some more complicated devices, kind of like those from pitagora suicchi, but this guy is something else. I think he lost some marbles...

  5. Cooper, imagine he had the internet...he'd be on it 24 hrs a day looking up marble websites.

    Savannah, it's the timing thing that cracked me up. Some are faster than others.

    Anon1, aaah the Belgians, great chocolate! And marbling! I don't think he's autistic, just super nerdy.

    Anon2, that would have been cool. The marbles would have enjoyed the change of scenery, too.

  10. Gary, he must appreciate what he has now, compared to what he had when he was 12. Feels like a king, I bet.
