You might have found out about the unforeseen fatality of a European residence sparrow in Amsterdam recently. A pest control operator shot it dead with an air rifle as it trembled on the edge of an exposition center. The bird had overturned a domino after flying in with an open home window. Sadly for the bird, the domino dropped onto another domino, and it hit one more, as well as so on until greater than 23,000 dominoes fell.
The catastrophe might have been a lot, even worse. Employees of the Embolden NV TV business had spent weeks with the objective of establishing even more than 4 million dominoes to beat the globe document on 2005 Domino Day domino99 , November 18. They just had 200,000 dominoes to go when the bird knocked one (er, 23,000-plus) over.
