Honestly, it's just kind of sad at this point. Like, that is one of the gags they do in old movies/tv shows that you say "that never ACTUALLY happens."

We're living in a Mel Brooks movie? Is that it? I was taking it more for The Twilight Zone than History of the World, Part 1 lol

Wait, that's real?

Not even his own staff give enough shits about his image anymore to tell him about this?  I mean, there's pretty much nothing left he can do to make himself more of an international ass-clown, but he still continues to surprise me every damned day.

I'm trying to figure out what it's doing right after it lays each piece of track.  Like it aligning itself to the engine for a second to check... something?

It switches directions once after laying the piece and again after picking it up to align the piece properly. After that, I think it just makes way for the train and keeps moving in a semicircular pattern to clear the train and pick the next piece. It moves in roughly a D shape.

It looks like it's verifying that the train made it on to the next track, before continuing the routine.
I didn't know I could handle another 10 inches and it was rough but in the end I'm glad I did it.

That's meme-speak for "We are really f*****g lazy when we can't eve say full words".

Looks to me like it hovers over the train and maybe detects the yellow center and once does it knows it can go grab the other piece where it follows along the path of tracks.  Im more curious of how it then changes course and cuts across the circle to lay the next piece down.  T

It might be simpler than all of that. It might just be programmed to begin each movement from the next sequential base point, of which there are 8. Report to point 1, move 100 and grab a piece, drop it 180 away, report to point 2, continue the sequence.

That is hot.
Only King could mis-spell a LETTER.
Yep. I think the only party in the MP/DT situation that hasn't moved on is DTF.

:lol

Man, if I had a press like that and the wherewithal to use it to make Youtube videos, that's about 400,000th on the list of things I'd do with it. Fuck, I can think of at least 4 things involving toothpaste that would be more entertaining than that one.

You never seen those videos? They have whole channels of just crushing weird stuff with that thing. Not my thing, but I can assure you they do weird stuff with it.
