    One of my proudest moments in life was building a replica of the landing craft from V. The original V. I replaced the head with a green cylinder to simulate the lizard people. Makes me reflectful.

    tedgp, LEGO is the brand name, but in this case it is being used as a noun. You wouldn`t say "I`d like a box of LEGO for my birthday." It just seems weird.

    I never had real "Legos." Mine were called Brix Blocks. I used to make a guy named Steve Brix Blocks out of them and he would get into all sorts of predicaments that would make him smash apart and then I would have to rebuild him.

    I had a giant denim bag to hold my thousands of legos. It definitely helped keep them from getting lost and then stepped on later.

    When I left for college, I gave them all away to a relative`s kid.

    Actually kids, if you want to get technical, LEGO is the name of the company. You`re supposed to say "LEGO bricks" or "Lego pieces" as opposed to LEGO or LEGOS.

    I actually built cars that had wheels and I would try to make them as durable as possible. Then I would roll them into a wall really hard to see how much stayed together. I actually got pretty good at it and started doing some original design changes. Looking back on it, that`s probably where my engineering career started!

    I`ve said it before and I`ll say it again, it`s LEGO. Not LEGOS or LEGOs. It has never been LEGOs and it never will be LEGOs. You have never seen LEGOs on the box, right? Why? Because it`s just LEGO. You buy a box of LEGO. You use a LEGO Brick or Bricks. You don`t buy LEGOs, or use LEGOs Brick or Bricks.

    They even announced it themselves.

    Apart from beating the crap out of my little (well behaved, highly academic) brother. Locking his little mates in the shed ("there are some sweats at the back!") and then screaming "Snakes! Spiders!" Oh and dangling him over the banisters from his feat and making him say things like "I`m a big poofta". He used to love making large elaborate spaceships out of lego. I`d pretend not to be interested until completion then I`d grab it and swing it wildly around making "Neeeaarrrnnnnn" noises as I flew it close to walls etc. After I got bored with this I`d say " I think this should fly upstairs", which meant it was time to crash it down the stairs.
    Drawing it out with a few more "neeeeeaarn, whooosh" noises I`d sling it downstairs and watch it disintegrate. While my brother was crying and cursing me I`d give him a massive deadleg and bid him good day. Ahhhh, happy times.

    He is a copper now.
