If you were looking for something fun to do to pass the time then you could try and replicate this insane video put together by Pepsi in which they rig 1,650 mousetraps with ping-pong balls and then film them all going off.

The video was filmed by HarrimanSteel and shows how they setup the elaborate rig. Apparently the chain reaction in the video can be used in physics classrooms to demonstrate what happens inside a nuclear reactor which is pretty cool.

According to the creators there are 1,620 mousetraps and 1840 ping-pong balls, so it might be a bit difficult to replicate this at home. Maybe it's best to just leave it to these guys.
