Chevy made a life-size Silverado pickup with Lego bricks

Building life-size replicas of cars from Lego is far from a fresh idea these days, but seeing the finished creation is still just as impressive as ever, especially when considering how much time an effort goes into the construction.

LEGO heads swallowed and passed for science so you won’t have to

LEGO heads swallowed and passed for science so you won’t have to

It’s a sad and unavoidable fact of life that innocent as well as not so innocent toddlers love putting things into their mouths. Most of the time it's food but other times it involves things they may perceive as delicious delights.
