3,000 hours and 100,000 toothpicks later

Artist Scott Weaver spent 35 years working on this toothpick structure of San Francisco, which required 100,000 toothpicks and has a ball that rolls through the entire thing in Rube Goldberg fashion.

The nine-foot-tall creation is called
"Rolling Through the Bay". But perhaps the best part of this is Weaver's sentiment towards the project; he loves to "know that I'm building something that people will see later on that took a long time to build for no reason."

Ripley's Museum has upped its offer from $10,000 to $40,000 to buy it. Mr. Weaver isn't selling.
