Coolest Lego Set EVER. Legos for grown ups.



Legos aren't just for kids and geeks. LEGO Architecture Studio is 1200+ pieces of Lego awesomeness. It's designed with adult Lego builders in mind, particularly those who like free-form building rather than detailed instructions.

I grew up with classic Lego sets.  We didn't have the movie themed sets.  We relied on imagination. Like most of you, I never outgrew my love for Legos. My wife, who grew up back when they were still considered "toys for boys", never played with them. She had difficulty understanding why I wanted to purchase two of every set when I started getting them for my kids.

Actually, that's not completely true. The only set of Legos I still have is the Ferrari Formula One Lego Set, which combines two of my favorite passions.

Now, if I could just convince them to create a Bacon Lego set, I could die happy.

Anyhow, we all know Legos are cool; so what makes this the coolest Lego set ever?

This set is entirely white with lots of unique pieces specific for creating architectural masterpieces. If you have your gold iPhone, IKEA furniture and live in a hipster loft in New York city, you may be colder than this set but not much.

Additionally, well it comes with a design guide, this set isn't designed to build anything in particular. In other words… You must possess imagination. If you don't, I recommend that you get out your Harry Potter set and build yourself a Dumbledore.

Until now the coolest set was the LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector's Millennium Falcon which, requires you not only to be geeky, but you also need to be unemployed to build it in less than a year. Don't worry, however, because you can shoot a time lapse video and put it on YouTube. Now you're not unemployed, you're a filmmaker.

If you don't already have it, don't quit your job yet. This retired $400 set is now selling for over $1700. One Amazon Seller has it ready to ship for $3,899.99. 

Anyhow if you have architectural skills, design skills or at least imagination, you can get this set for $150 with free shipping. If you use my links, I'll even earn a tiny commission.

Happy building!

Marvels of the Science: Rocks and Things

My kids have a science test today. We've been studying rocks and minerals, erosion and weathering, and other science-y geology stuff all week.

All that work, and we just should have done in Internet search. After all, everything on the Internet is factual when it comes to science.

Here's a perfect example, a quick documentary that teaches us everything we know about rocks and 2 minutes and 43 seconds.

Stretch your brains!

More Realistic Anniversary Gift Traditions

New Anniversary Gifts Destined to become Traditional My wife and I have been married for 20 years today. Over the past 20 years I made efforts each year to observe the traditional anniversary gifts. Some of them are certainly more difficult than others, and many of them are hard to find gift worthy in the modern age.
Therefore, I offer you a modern take on anniversary gifts. How many of these will become traditional?
First Anniversary – The Ramen Noodle anniversary. Let’s face it, you blew $30,000 on the wedding, and your student loan debt hasn’t gone anywhere. Share a Cup O’ Noodles. Eat with chopsticks on the floor because you can’t yet afford a couch.
Second Anniversary – The Puppy Anniversary. She’s been looking at you with those eyes that say she wants to start a family, but you just bought a new couch. Get her a puppy instead.
Third Anniversary – The Kinky Lingerie Anniversary. Leather, silk or lace can re-fire the engines after a year of flannel pajamas that smell like the puppy,…

Donald Trump Hates Freedom of the Press, But Why?

Donald J Trump is challenging the concept of free press. He has publicly ridiculed ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, BBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, MSNBC, and many other news organizations. Some have called out his twitter rants as being distinctly fascist.
This past week on Meet the Press, John McCain, a Republican member of the U.S. Senate, while not mentioning Donald Trump specifically, called suppression of the press "how dictators get started". Freedom of the Press in the Constitution
Freedom of the Press isn't a new concept. Our founding fathers put it into the original Bill of Rights. Even in the 1789 they realized that a free press was essential for maintaining checks and balances to the power of government.

The Press in Colonial America
Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Alexander Hamilton and James Madison understood the power and value of the press. But what, exactly, was the press in pre-Constitution America? In colonial America around 1760 there were only 24 new…
