    The logic of striving for failure: If your goal is failure, every time you fail, you succeed in your objective and, if you fail in your objective, it's because you inadvertently succeeded. You can't lose

    I really appreciate anyone actually trying and building something. No matter how simple it may seem. And sharing the anthusiasm and the spirit of designing and building. Thing doesn't always work as you may have thought or expected, that's why you have to build, to truly understand.

    I think the word "useless" in the title is a reflection of humility, because what she builds are NOT useless. You wanna see something truly useless? The "free-energy" thingy that some people build and demonstrate on MReporter, that is useless, worse than useless actually, because of the dishonest and the deception.

    This inspired me. It gets hard to fight that voice in your head. It gets to a point where I can't move even if the answer is right in front of me. Fear of failure takes over and the thought of starting turns into 2 months' worth of daydreaming until the drive just fades away. This video made a great impact and possibly changed my life (work(job) and play). This is possibly all of those "just friggin' do it" articles summarized into 12 minutes in video form. Thanks, Simone.

    Simone you're machines are only useless in the way that they don't perform (usually) as intended. Or maybe they do...because they inspire and ignite our sense of discovery/ambition/invention. You may not have an engineering background, but you have an inventors mind. One day....one day
