Watch Gravity Foil This World Record Domino Tower Attempt

Video: Sometimes failure isn't always a bad thing. This 5.79m tall domino tower was only 10 layers away from officially becoming the second tallest in the world — but then gravity claimed yet another victim. As heartbreaking it is to see all this hard work go to waste, it's also pretty cool to watch 241 layers of dominoes, some 3242 in total, come spectacularly crashing to the ground. As a result of science being science, this domino tower officially became the third tallest ever built, but the tallest in America, so it wasn't all for nought.
