    This is a solid gold 2x4 LEGO brick for sale. Apparently they were awarded to employees and business partners of the company back in the late 70's and early 80's when I was just an ugly baby with a big head who crapped himself all the time. This brick is 25.65g of 14K gold (0... / Continue →

    Remember the washing machine that failed to clean a brick? Well here it is again with a face. Not so funny now, is it? Yes, yes it is too. As a matter of fact, it's even funnier. Unfortunately, all the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't put the washer back toget... / Continue →

    Remember the story about the house in Britain that would be constructed entirely out of LEGO blocks? Well this is it, mid-construction. I have to admit, I'm a little disappointed that it has a wooden infrastructure. I thought the whole damn thing was gonna be LEGO, right dow... / Continue →

    Ryan went to Best Buy to buy a MacBook Pro. And he did. Or so he thought. Then he brought it home and realized it was a brick. A real brick! Still, it's a step up from rocks. When I got home I opened the box and found a paving stone packed with bubble wrap, instead of the... / Continue →

    What is being hailed by some as the world's first vampire remains have been discovered in a mass grave in Venice, Italy. The woman (who I suspect was a vampire-witch hybrid) was buried with a brick wedged in her mouth, which apparently has some link to being to vampiracy. D... / Continue →

    Some guy in the Netherlands is making Gameboy shaped bricks. They're bricks that look like Gameboys but can't play Tetris. He's charging €31.30 (~$46) per brick with worldwide shipping included. $46!? You could pave your sidewalk with real Gameboys for cheaper. There's a... / Continue →
