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!

I'm Disabled and I Can Prove It

I'm disabled. 
I was born in 1970. About a year later I was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy. I never walked. I got my first wheelchair at kindergarten age, and my first power wheelchair in sixth grade.
Yet, around 4 to 6 times per year I have to, for one reason or another, prove that I'm disabled.
Granted, I'm 5 feet nothin', 112 pounds and sit in an electric wheelchair, but apparently that's just anecdotal evidence… We need science!
The Good Doctor
Every couple months I have to send my physician a form and ask him to fill it out. He has to state that I have spinal muscular atrophy, identify the diagnosis date, explained that my prognosis is something akin to "ain't getting better any time soon" and sign it.
With new Medicare regulations, the good doctor is not allowed to sign the said form without seeing me "face-to-face" to prevent fraud. Although I'm extraordinarily healthy, hospitalized last in 1996 for something unrelated to my dis…

Endangered Gorilla Killed after Child Falls into Habitat

One of this week’s trending topics on Facebook and twitter was a tragic story. A small boy fell into the gorilla habitat at the Cincinnati Zoo. Minutes later the western lowlands gorilla, a critically endangered species, was shot and killed by zoo personnel.
A tragic story has been made even more tragic through misinformation and misguided opinion on social media.
Here are six ways that Facebook and twitter users made the situation worse.
It’s the mother’s fault!
I’m a father of 14-year-old twins, a boy and a girl. I don’t know a single father or mother that has never in their lives lost sight of their three-year-old. I compare it to a trip to Walmart. You’ll see a toddler screaming and a mother completely exasperated, and usually another child being completely ignored. Those of you without children stand in judgment. I know I did. “If that were my child I would…” I’ll let you complete the sentence in condescending judgment. 
Parents, however, understand. We’ve all been there. Every …
