I've never understood the modeler mentality of spending hours on tedious non-functional toys, but that's pretty damn impressive.

Anyone else get the feeling that this thing's going to go up in flames any minute?

I'm very relieved that this freak is a fan of the New York Football Giants.

Yeah, but as far as I remember, children can't eat wood, plastic and metal.

And in fairness to this guy, he'd probably be raping the starving children if he didn't occupy himself with these types of tasks

I accidentally a few words.

Yeah, that second picture is a pretty faithful reproduction of the view I had from section 310.

Take a moment to watch the video. Really gives a better look at the guy, the stadium and his long-suffering wife and neighbors.

This is one of those times that I have to remind myself that "fan" is short for "fanatic"

If declaring yourself a Giants fan means you owe community service, being a Cowboys or Raiders fan must get you 3-5 years at minimum.

I love it. Seeing things like this makes me sad that I don't have the time, money or focus needed to do projects like this. Because this is the sort of thing I'd do if I did.

Being a Raiders fan gets you the Raiders. Surely that's a worse punishment than jail time.

Tri-state people have more Asperger's than anybody. There's this kind of fixated, child-minded, toy-focused male hobbyist there that you don't see so often other places.

If I were rich, I'd buy it, dress up like Godzilla, and destroy it.

Not that I have anything against the giants. Just think it would be fun.

As a Giants fan, I'm okay with this.

If Big Blue defends its title, this should be in the parade.

Blairstown Tri-State area? It's at least 75 miles from NYC. Closer to Philly in fact.
