This device consists of a weathered London Yellow Stock brick wall 2m in height, fitted with a rather large and ornate period mangle handle.

Turn the handle for as long as you like.

Prior art? The_20Entropy_20Machine

       Ignore this, someone beat me to it.

       I think you should keep it as an unusually precise example of an idea whose time has come. Also, it would be really interesting to analyse the creative process which led to the two ideas coinciding. Please don't delete it.

       Agreed. This phenomenon must be thoroughly investigated. Please link or otherwise cite example of prior art for purpose of comparison.

       I think [Phront] is referring to my idea, The Entropy Machine, that I posted less than a day earlier. While the two inventions are superficially similar, it seems to me that the intent is different. Mine is more of a "consider the grand cosmic scale" type idea while [Phront]'s seems to be simply Zen.
