    This is the LEGO Firewalk constructed at the Bull Moose music store in South Portland, Maine. Not to brag, but I could go the distance easily. You see, ever since I was a child I've run around barefoot to develop super-calloused 'Ninja Turtle' feet. Now I can walk on anythin... / Continue →

    These are the LEGO shot glasses available from ThinkGeek ($20 for 4). They're not actually licensed LEGO products though because LEGO doesn't promote underage drinking, plus why pay for licensing rights when you don't have to? That is like flushing money down the toilet. Sam... / Continue →
