Behold! The World's Slowest Rube Goldberg Machine

In our fast-paced, super-connected world, sometimes you've just gotta... slow down. Slow TV. Slow cooking. Slow parenting. And now: the world's slowest Rube Goldberg machine (a.k.a one of those Mouse Trap-like contraptions that takes hilariously complicated steps to accomplish a simple task).

Most Rube Goldberg machines take a few minutes to do whatever they're supposed to do, but inventor Bob Partington took a radically different approach. We don't want to spoil anything - just watch the video of his machine in action, condensed into a tidy three minutes, and smoothly soundtracked by Kanye West's, Drive Slow.

Prime Minister-designate Boris Johnson has dabbled with illicit drugs in the past, but reforming the United Kingdom's antiquated cannabis laws probably won't be part of his future. On Monday it was officially announced that MP Boris Johnson had been elected as Leader of the Conservative Party, which means he will succeed outgoing Prime Minister Theresa May as the head of government. Johnson is expected to take a different approach to politics than his predecessor, but anyone hoping that he will push for national cannabis reform probably shouldn't hold their breath.
