Lego! It makes the world go Round

I love discovering the wacky, amazing things that people build with Lego. Check out this working Harpischord. Just damn cool what people come up with.

And on a random aside. I loathe the sometimes pluralized “LEGOS”. It just sounds intrinsically wrong to me at a basic phonetic level and sets my teeth on edge. To me the singular and plural form of the word will always be LEGO which comes from the Danish phrase leg godt, meaning “play well.”

Dumb-Dumb-Dumb Dumb-de-Dumb Dumb-de-Dumb!

(That’s the Imperial March for those of you trying to hum along at home).

And yes I spelled it Dumb rather than the traditional Dum so as to tie in with this stellar example of Darwinism at it’s finest.

I think we can safely apply the first part of the Wizard’s First Rule here as well. (For the unenlightened, here is the full Wizard’s First Rule. I hope you can figure out which is the first part on your own).

People are stupid. They will believe anything they want to be true or fear to be true.

And on that note… G’nite.

Uhhh Yeah…

I’m not sure if I’ve posted this link before and quite frankly I’m too lazy to search through the archive so if I’ve posted this link before, just nod and smile and move on. If I haven’t, then amuse yourself with the sordid tales of comics from a more innocent age that, in the context of modern times, have become… a bit off (to put it politely).
