Wow, I never even though about making it that difficult! :P

I just built a big box for the whole thing to start out on, so it didn't have to climb so high.
I had just finished tube, so it was fresh in my mind and thought I could make a car that would climb up, fall right, then swing into the goal on a leash.  Unfortunately it became increasingly complex when I couldn't get the car to fall the right way and ended up making minor tweaks for about 2 hours :P

I have to repeat myself on saying how good of a time killer this game is. For once a flash game actually kept me interested.

There's a whole page on their forums about overly and needlessly complex solutions to every stage.

I'd bet that you're currently bloated like a water ballon on a hot summer's day.

That analogy doesn't even make sense.  Why would a water balloon be especially bloated on a hot summer's day? For your sake, I hope there wasn't too much logic testing on your LSAT.

lmao.  I liked the bug Chavo showed because it was really dramatic, but that's just cool.

I beat all the levels after a little bit of time. Here's my solution to unpossible:

http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=714744

I was initially trying to build a launcher (out of what is now the drawbridge), but when that failed due to the chain's weight, I had to settle for this. It's not that awesome, but I like it.
errr... something like that...

Tried to do unpossible with a slingshot, since I haven't seen anyone try. It was pretty much just an epic failure. Here's how far I got:

Wow... your launcher is a lot more powerful than mine was, but I modified yours a bit and solved it with:

I modified yours, Drake, to make it a bit less sloppy with loose pieces.  :)
