    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Dr. Josiah Bartlett: This place still runs like a Rube Goldberg contraption.

        Reuben Garret Lucius Goldberg, artist and cartoonist of the 1920s and 30s, was famous for drawing complex machines to do simple tasks. The term Rube Goldberg is defined in dictionaries as an adjective meaning to accomplish simple tasks by complex means. The board game Mousetrap, and video games Incredibots and Crazy Machines, are based on Rube Goldberg machines.
