Beginning today, guests will participate in building a 90-foot tall tower of Lego bricks. The previous record was set last year at Legoland Billund in Denmark.

My initial reaction, before I read that the guests will participate, was to think that they certainly are putting their three new master builders to the test.
I think thier next project should be to build a scale replica of Legoland, complete with scale replica of Legoland, complete with .... ;)

Not related, but did you notice the Honda TV spot with the Lego SUV originally had no mention of Lego, but now it does? They didn't think that Lego would just pretend it was some generic building block in the spot, did they?

Every time I've seen that commercial, the small print on the bottom says that they are Megablocks.

Doesn't matter if the Honda is made out of legos, megablocks, plastic, or metal.
The Honda Element has to be one of the ugliest vehicles on the road.

No Chitown, I think that award goes to the Pontiac Aztek (is it still made?). I think they used an ardvark as their inspiration.

Funny, I have a poster of the Aztek in my room from the autoshow where it was a concept car.
I wonder what these legos are capeable of supporting. I mean you can't just make a skyrise out of these, can you? There has to be some upward stress limit on the legos at the bottom... I just wonder what it is.

Thanks for the link! I'll have to remember to swing by slowly to see if it's still up on my way home.
