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!

The Worst Part of Being Disabled

The central character of my novel is a wheelchair user. I know that's no big surprise. It's important to me, however, that I'm able to relate the experience of severe disability to a universal audience. I want to make sure the character expresses his worldview in a powerful way. For example, you can close your eyes, but that doesn't help you truly understand blindness. Every so often I hear about some sociology professor who gives everyone a disability for a day. People come up to me and tell me how they learned to understand my limitations and frustrations because they borrowed a wheelchair and went to the mall.  If they want to understand my frustrations, they should borrow a wheelchair and go to a job interview. Whether you have been disabled your entire life, or spent your life in perfect physical condition, I want to get your perceptions on true disability. What do you feel is the worst part about being disabled? Please be very specific. You can choose any disabil

Personal Space: an invisible disability

The worst part about being disabled for me may surprise you.  In a previous post I invited you to share your thoughts about disability. (See:   The Worst Part of Being Disabled ) I face numerous frustrating challenges on a daily basis. I'm constantly dependent on others. I need help bathing and dressing. I can't drive, cook, hold a book or feed myself. I rely on family, employees, technology and the goodwill of others. Some days it's frustrating, but I've learned through experience how to manage all this help. Other frustrations are attitudinal barriers. Today I live very comfortably and have a high family income. I'm an entrepreneur, but not because of my unquenchable desire to build businesses, but because very few companies would be willing to give me a job. I made the decision more than 15 years ago that I could build a business easier than I could find a job, so that's what I did. My single biggest frustration however isn't getting the help I need or ov

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’v
