How Lego Bricks are Made

I’m filling in for Ryan while he circumnavigates the Eisenhower Expressway in Chicago.

I know this one went around a few days ago, but it’s so good: a Flash and QuickTime movie on how Lego bricks are made.

The detail is so fantastic that you must check it out. Must!

That was a cool link. Let us all praise Paul, as Ryan would never deliver to us a link this cool :)

I bring you links, Ryan brings you Roomba accidents. That's how it works.

Usually Paul's links are to some lame computer or internet applications.

Except when they're not, about 90% of the time. 10%! That's all I ask!

Paul I'm just kidding with you. But please, less web based pings

Matt: they're all web-based! (Just kidding with you too.)

C'mon Matt, us eternally geeky ex-Berwynites (As the Son of Sven Ghoulie would say: BERWYN!!!!!) need to get our Slashdot fixes on every 2.485 seconds. ;) We figured you'd know that by now?!?!

Without it... we get this insatiable urge to try that muskratt/lampur turd coffee Ryan enlightened us to eons back. ;) Either that or we just try to find newer and more intriguing ways to sneak into Ryan's house and hook a R/C car receiver up to his Roomba (and find a way to control it via a shell script linked to a daemon in Terminal in OS X). ;) Gives us hours of enjoyment in having him figure out why it keeps crashing. :) ::chuckling::

Bowing to Andy Ihnatko, you truly are a genius and a mentor.


Be afraid... be verrry afraid. LoL


What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
