An Adeptly Patient Neurosurgeon

Have any of you ever played the game of labyrinth before?  If you have, you understand the intricacies of the game.  The object is to guide a silver ball through a maze consisting of many holes to the finish line.  If the ball falls into one of the holes, you lose and start the game all over again.  Pretty easy, huh.  Try doing it in about 24 seconds. 

 You think that was neat.  Wait, until you see this one.  A neurosurgeon, who played the one ball game of labyrinth in the video above, is challenging himself with a two ball game of labyrinth.  A two ball game of labyrinth is near impossible by many circumstances, but watch and see how he patiently guides the two balls to the finish line in about two and a half minutes.  It is a supreme display of intellect and sheer patience.

I trust him to operate on my brain.  :)

Wow. That's crazy. Was that one really a world record?

Amazing. Patience AND strategy. But I hope I never need brain surgery.

I believe so. It is pretty difficult playing labyrinth with one ball, but playing labyrinth with two makes it all the more impossible. And, breaking the world record on top of that. Hats off to him. :)

I agree. I hope I never need brain surgery either, but if I did I would easily trust him with my brain. :)
