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!

Friday Funnies: Funny Retail Signs

Well, it's Friday so maybe you're planning to do a little shopping tonight. Watch carefully, and you might find some entertaining retail signage such as these. Here's a collection of funny retail signs from around the globe, mostly from the good old USA.

If you're planning to stay overnight, make sure you have a shilling and a few extra pence if you need to stable your horse. Here are the Rules of Inn.


After Christmas wrapping paper goes on sale, and so does Rapping paper, apparently.


Special offers are everywhere! You can get two drinks for the price of two! Don't worry, after four you won't notice how much you're spending anyhow.


Sometimes no caption is necessary.


But I'm so hot.  I'm sure everyone inside doesn't mind looking at me.


I didn't even bother going inside.  Clearly I would violate several of these store rules.


This was seen on a Dairy Queen drive through.  I always keep my secret ice cream money in my underwear.


You should pay a…

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,…

An open letter to Emmanuel Macron, President of France

Dear Pres. Macron,

The President of the United States, Donald Trump, has been invited for the celebration of Bastille Day, a day for celebrating democracy and independence of the French people.

As a citizen of the United States, I encourage you to revoke the invitation. Donald Trump does not represent the vast majority of the American people. As you have stated publicly, if the United States is not going to support science, you have offered US scientists the option of emigrating to France for the continuation of their studies on climate change.

Additionally, Donald Trump has made his nationalist and blatantly racist feelings known on multiple occasions, again something I know that you personally find offensive.

The majority of Americans would support the decision for France to revoke his invitation. Citizens of the United States need to take responsibility for removing their country from a position of influence on the world stage. Our previous president, Barack Obama, strived to be a …
