Huge ask but.....



Sorunome (author)Jake_hates_lego2016-06-29

Haahaa, i destroyed this thing six years ago, no way for me to re-create it!

Still glad you like it, though ;)

Shadowman39 (author)Sorunome2016-08-07

You could re-create it from the pictures and video, you're good at doing that. ;-)

What do you mean, I was on the edge of my seat! So suspenseful!

Sorunome (author)Shadowman392013-10-07

Will the ball manage to slide through? Yes it did! Now is the next curve coming up! Will it manage it past that? You'll see that right after the advertisments!

How long did that take you?!?!?!?!

i copy pasted it off of when i originally made it.
And it took me houres.

Haha looks like a script ;D

but but but, derpy

also, if you are by any chance next time on a linux machine or on a apple machine, go to terminal and type in


you will see exactly that image

My school uses linux (because it is free, off course :p)

so, check it out in your school then


and you will see that derpy :D (and will have to hit ctrl+c or just close the window)

Haha I'll try ;D

yay, tell me if it worked :D

www139 (author)Sorunome2014-04-13

it worked!!!!!

Sorunome (author)www1392014-04-14

yay! :D

Shadowman39 (author)Sorunome2013-10-07

I have no idea what that is, but it's probably Derpy. :-P

Sorunome (author)Shadowman392013-10-07

how did you guess xP

Shadowman39 (author)Sorunome2013-10-07

I guess it's a lucky guess. :-)

Sorunome (author)Shadowman392013-10-07

lol, or do you happen to know me pretty well? ;)

Shadowman39 (author)Sorunome2013-10-07

Yes, that. :-P

Sorunome (author)Shadowman392013-10-07

mindcraftmaster (author)2013-10-10

Sorunome (author)mindcraftmaster2013-10-10


MoomanII (author)2013-08-09

I like path 6.

Sorunome (author)MoomanII2013-08-09

Ha, thanks!
Also, you made me rewatch the vid because i had no clue which one it was x.x

Shadowman39 (author)Sorunome2013-08-09

You forgot your own ball machine? :-O Just kidding, I would do the same to mine. :-P

Sorunome (author)Shadowman392013-08-09

Shadowman39 (author)Sorunome2013-08-09

You forgot the upload date on your own ball machine? :-O Just kidding, I would do the same to mine. :-P

Sorunome (author)Shadowman392013-08-09

that post was almost the same as the one before :P
/me smacks Shadowman

Shadowman39 (author)Sorunome2013-08-09

I know it was. :-)

Sorunome (author)Shadowman392013-08-09

I know that you know it was.

Shadowman39 (author)Sorunome2013-08-09

You should rotate some of the pictures on this Ible. :-P

Sorunome (author)Shadowman392013-08-25

but....that would require work O.O

Shadowman39 (author)Sorunome2013-08-25

It wouldn't be too hard.

Sorunome (author)Shadowman392013-08-25

It takes time.
Time is money.
Money is knex.
Knex is Apocalypse.
So it takes Apocalypse! D:

Shadowman39 (author)Sorunome2013-10-07

Use the new editor. :-)

Sorunome (author)Shadowman392013-10-07

it isn't enabled for slideshows yet iirc

Shadowman39 (author)Sorunome2013-10-07

Oh, nevermind then. And what does iirc mean?
