Gizmodo: Lego Brick Timeline: 50 years of Building Frenzies and Curiosities – The LEGO brick turns 50 at exactly 1:58 p.m. today, January 28, 2008…It all first started in 1947, when LEGO bought their first plastic injection machine. The brick was not invented then but took final form in 1958, when the shape of the stud-and-tube brick was patented.
Global warming is fun and all, but it would be nice if fit would get a little bit colder so the local snow “hill” could make some snow. We’re supposed to take R out for skiing lessons, but it hasn’t been cold enough for them to make snow since Christmas break. They say they have “sugar snow” with 12″ variable base – translation: crappy skiing. While the snow doesn’t matter too much for R right now, there’s no point in paying $$$ for Aaron and I to get lift passes if we can’t take a couple of decent runs.
Snow! Snow! Snow! Snow!
