"I've got a man working on a flushing Lego lavatory. We think it's possible."

I would not want to be the one that cleans the lego toilet after someone goes #2.

Being a girl, I didn't get Legos. And I would have been run off the girl's section of the playground if I wanted to play with Legos. I did once have some Duplos, but those are barely worth mentioning.

The plasticine garden looks cool as well. It's the cake that makes it art. I wonder how many people will show up to help him build the house?

\I'm saving up for one of the big kick-ass Lego kits.
\\How would you make Lego slashies? [_] Like that?

Why on Earth were people playing with Legos outside on a playground?

If clarkson and hammond show up they will make a laughing spectacle of themselves (with may) and ruin it.

Well, sometimes a boy would show off a small Lego whatever, but I mostly referring to the fact that girls just didn't play with Legos when I was a kid.

\Let go of my Legos.

They plan to build a house from 3.000.000 pieces of Lego? That'll be a rather small affair I think, considering that the Mythbusters used more than 500K pieces for their 7 ft. boulder of Lego.

No kiddin. God I hope they seal it somehow, too, since any kid that's ever had the bright idea to try to make a lego ship will say - legos aren't even remotely watertight for the most part.

Change names like this and people won't laugh at you so much.

I would assume that they would use a silicon sealant.

They claimed he is Michael Schumacher but now they have, I believe, admitted he wasn't really The Stig, but was just brought in for that episode.

You beat me to it...

I personally think The Stig is a different driver each time, I've noticed different driving styles & I'm positive that he's gotten taller and shorter in different episodes. (Thinner, too.)

Either that or I have to stop doing Volcano hits before watching Top Gear...

/ok no I don't

1- It's a British show and they are British.

2- They're not losers. Unlike you.

The world's largest model plane? Is that just a plane without a working engine? WTF? :)

One thing I read said there is actually a team of drivers and they take turns. Not confirmed, but as they have said The Stig is not a person but a character, it fits.

I'd guess RC plane. But then I don't understand how an RC jetliner would not qualify which I doubt they mean.

There's also the interview with some Dutch bint, where you can hear the Stig speaking with a distinct British accent, something you definitely can't describe Shumacher's accent to be.

LOL Subby's such a nerd!

Now I'm gonna go be cool by working on my tan, popping my collar, teasing out my hair, while listening to Icy Hot Stuntaz....

Dorking is actually a lovely little town. If I remember my local history correctly, it was named for Queen Dorkas, who lived in the area around 42 CE.

When we moved to Surrey, I refused to live in Dorking. I was 14 and knew what my friends would say. We ended up in Weybridge, which is far more innocuously-named.

/supposedly related to Dorkas
//yes, my friends had a field day with that

James,
I have a trash bag full of foursies and eightsies if you need.


P.S..... Scumacher was The Stig in the FXX Test because he's the OWNER of that FXX.
