Pretty impressive build.
Jim McDonough is truly a master at his craft. He likes Lego, boats and naval history. And when these passions combine, magic is made. McDonough’s epically huge, ridiculously well-detailed Lego navy boats are the stuff of legend.

+Bill Collins , glad you like it.  Being a Missourian myself I have always been intrigued by this ship.  And being a military history geek of WWII and WWI plays into it also.

This is what I do for my sister's son.  I just give him the money instead of buying the crap they are selling.

A neighbor came by asking me to buy... I just gave him a 20 and said buy yourself some of that stuff as I do not want any of it...

So far someone else came knocking at my door BUT they did not receive a answer.

Fascinating.
Time, patience, time, dedication, and time are just a few of the things Peter Bellerby needed to found and subsequently operate Bellerby & Co. Globemakers, one of the only companies on Earth that still makes globes by hand.

A fabulous set this week.
Here are eleven of the best photos that readers added to the Consumerist Flickr Pool in the last week, picked for usability in a Consumerist post or for just plain neatness.

Seems to be a pretty nifty device. USB powered, a built in light, automatic sensor for the light.  I'm going to wait til the last 48 hours of the Kickstarter before I decide if I'm going to jump on the bandwagon
CycleLabs is raising funds for SmartHalo - Turn your bike into a smart bike on Kickstarter! SmartHalo is a smart biking system that lets you focus on what matters the most - the road.
