Thought Experiment: Longest 5-piece assembly?
So, for reasons totally unrelated to anything, I was contemplating: What is the longest distance you could cover with 5 assembled LEGO elements?
* The elements have to be plastic. No string, stickers, paper, wires, etc. (The longest non-plastic thing I can think of was probably a kite string they sold)
* The elements have to be "attached" using a standard connection (stud/tube, pin/hole, ball/socket, etc). Doing something wacky like "using the adhesive at the bottom of a play table" is disallowed!
* The elements have to be released in something LEGO has sold at some point. (I know LEGO has, for instance, long reels of plastic flex-tubing in-house that they can cut-to-length, so ignore stuff like that!)
I got a pretty large answer (over 2.5 meters), but I'm curious to see what other people can come up with. I have no idea if something longer is possible!
