    Wonder what Lego bits you use to make the black hole that's going to consume us all?

    I love the thought that the fundamental building block of the universe is a lego brick.

    Technically it would have to be a block where the gravitational attraction is too great for anything to escape, I am not sure they make that block yet so I guess a black one will have to suffice.

    Yeah c'mon build the rest of the system, in fact to make it complete we want the whole site including offices, toilets and canteen.

    i'm pretty sure that the box you keep your lego in has a small black hole in it, there is always one bit you know you've got but can never find. so perhaps there is in fact a black hole creating lego brick.

    Actually I think that is a wormhole and the other end deposits the missing brick on the stairs to be trodden on (with bare feet) whilst creeping upstairs to bed after getting home too late and trying not wake anybody up...

    17 boxes of Lego?

    ...about 9500 pieces...
