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.

@Molehouse: No, I`m pretty sure everyone I know says "Legos" not "Lego" when referring to the plural form of "Lego."

As the father of a 4 year old this is a common occurrence for me. I love to be bare foot around the house. Now I have feet of steel!

It`s not `LEGOs`, you just call it LEGO. In the same way you wouldn`t say `The welsh farmer was intimate with all his sheeps`.

I remember being really pissed at my older brother for a while, so I decided it`d be a good idea to hide them around the house...In his pillow case, in his shoes, and occasionally in his cereal. Rarely worked though.

Is it just me or does anyone else refer to the collection of LEGO as LEGO, not LEGOs? Isn`t that like saying pass the kleenexes rather than just kleenex?

@Bremir, and it`s just annoying when people mix up Lego with Megablocks or Lockblocks.

um, hell no

see, i don`t understand why people who know they are in a lego-inhabited zone don`t LOOK THE HELL DOWN AT WHERE YOU`RE STEPPING AND AVOID THE LEGO!!

Orange takes place of red, and vice versa

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.

I actually just played lego with my boyfriend not too long ago. heh. We made a bunch of cool cars and ships and a house. Ah, good times...good times.

I would always follow instructions first, then just tear it apart and build random stuff.
And of course the last one, sooooo many times.

When I used my LEGO® bricks, I built houses and people, then made the people go in the houses, then get attacked and decapitated.

Also, I have had bagged milk, but only in elementary school.

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!

@plurr4all tbh, I never buy jugs so I wouldn`t know lol. I`ve only had a bag leak once or twice though, and that was because someone sat on it or put it under other food on the fridge lol.

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.

Lego`s hurt :( But I pretty much always built according to the instructions, and then got frustrated because it`d always be missing the most important piece or I lost the right color so I had to substitute it with another. I miss legos :P

@plurr4all hahaha bagged milk is very normal here. It`s not gross at all, it`s just like milk in any other container. I like it better than cartons, they always leak >_<

Any childhood memories of Legos have been ruined by this one event.

Froggybuster, get that long gray LEGO outta your colon and relax a little...the plural of LEGO is whatever anyone wants it to be. You know what, maybe I want to call the color grey...does it matter? No.

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.

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.

"You wouldn`t say "I`d like a box of LEGO for my birthday." It just seems weird."

You would in Europe. It`s Lego. Not Legos.

This ggraph is inaccurate as I know I spent WAY more time trying to separate the long flat legos than actually finding what i need

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.

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.
