I don't know how many of you ever played the board game Mousetrap. For you children under the age of 48, the point of Mousetrap - well, there really wasn't any point, unless it was to prove that the people who designed it must have been on acid. You would spend half the day putting together the game's infrastructure, which would, when the time was right, activate a tall gear that would trigger a mallet, slapping a steel ball down a crooked staircase into a winding gutter, where it would set in motion yet another steel ball balanced on a rickety plastic pole high above the game board.
