The "competitions" are nothing more than an excuse to move a single rod or wheel to beat your opponent. The reason I have bothered to spend 5 minutes to win nearly all of the ones on this page is to prove how silly easy it is to win when there is no real goal.

Most of the times i try my best to complete a completely *new* contraption, or at the very least modifying one of MY previous builds. Being an artist i feel a compulsion to build anew, to create. However i am repeatedly beaten by "one-rod" devices and people who seem to put the most minimal amount of thought and creativity into their bots. So yeah, i agree with you.
