    This is the paper airplane folding and launching machine that a group of engineers built. I could probably watch it all day. Also: sleep and play video games. And if one of these f***ing lotto scratchers would finally hit the jackpot, maybe I could. But nooooooo, apparently... / Continue →

    This is a video of a Brazilian boy who built himself a little model excavator using plastic syringe hydraulics. Most impressive. I'd pretend I could have made something like that growing up, but I'd be lying. The only thing I was making at his age were messes in my pants. "... / Continue →

    This is the space shuttle replica that a 60-something Chinese farmer built on the roof of his home in the Guangdong province. Obviously, all the neighbors are jealous. And can you blame them? Who doesn't want a spaceship replica on top of their house? Nobody I want to be fr... / Continue →

    This are the first official images of the new Ghostbusters LEGO set. It looks like a fun one. It'll be released in June for around $50. Released tomorrow for $10,000? Hopefully my girlfriend, on bail. She, uh, she's a real firecracker. Plus an arsonist apparently. Keep g... / Continue →

    This is a picture of the Super Mario themed drum kit that Josh Fry just finished building. It was his first drum kit build. For reference, I have built zero drum kits, but a shit-ton of model airplanes. Anybody recognize the sprite he used for the ground? I know it's not fr... / Continue →

    British man John Bitmead spent over 1,000 hours and £4,000 (~$6,500) building a street-legal version of a Little Tikes Cozy Coupe car. Why? I'm not sure, apparently he doesn't share the same dream as you and I. "Which is?" A Flintstones-mobile! Allegedly the gas-powered ca... / Continue →

    This is the Joker themed LEGO funhouse built by LEGOmaniac Paul Hetherington. The build is impressive to begin with, but even more impressive when you see the video and realize PARTS OF IT ARE ANIMATED. Not like a cartoon though, I mean they move. Me? I rarely move. *lifti... / Continue →

    This is a 3-D recreation of MC Escher's iconic 'Relativity' built in LEGO (six years ago: this one) by Riccardo Zengelmi using 9,000 blocks over the course of 15 days. It kind of hurt my brain to look at for so long. It also kind of hurt my brain to chug both those beers with... / Continue →
