Someone makes a googol:1 reduction using LEGO gears.



I didn't know that most of those gear types existed! The last gear will rotate once in 5.2(10^91) years (or it would if this guy kept it turned on, of course). The predicted final age of the universe varies with the cosmological model, but I think it can be assumed that all life everywhere will cease long before that last gear could complete a rotation.
