    on the mod topic, while lego may seem to be a good thing for building a case out of due to it thermal properties and high self-ignition temperature (a value most people don't realize can be very low for the acrylic we like to use so much) it lacks the lateral stability and general rigidity that steel or aluminum naturally has.

    I other words if you built a lego case without glue, and didn't build it in the exact proper manner, the load-bearing beams would snap like twigs.

    I just tested the breaking point of one of the long technic-style beams and was surprised to find it's failing point along its longest edge (which should be the strongest) is only 2 pounds.

    That's really quite cool. I remember going to see a LEGO exhibit at our local mall when I was a kid. I still have my collection in a large bin in my closet, and it's not uncommon for me to play with them on occasion.

    Just an FYI, LEGO bricks should never be abbreviated as "LEGOs." The last page in this document will give you the necessary spellings. Note that the name is always in capital letters, never used as a generic noun, and never abbraviated.

    about 4 years ago I opened my Lego box and started messing around with them..... I ended up with a sweet looking aircraft , all in black. I like it so much that it's still exposed on my desk :D

    okay it's not nearly as good as what this guy can do, but.... nevermind :waah:
