    Brilliant. Now we just have to figure out how to “nudge” the table. It would be really cool to see someone with paralysis getting to play pinball. I love The Adams Family pinball. “Well played thing you’re really on the ball”. RIP Raul Julia.

    That’s pretty dang awesome. I want to try that out. It reminds my of the lyrics to Wonderboy:
    “How ’bout the power to kill a yak from 200 yards away…
    with mind bullets! That’s telekinesis, Kyle.”

    (I’ve been listening to too much Tenacious D.)
