(Daily Mail)   Boy with Asperger's saves up money for two years to buy his dream Lego set only to find out it's no longer made. He and his therapist write a letter to Lego and they C) find him a copy and get it to him for his birthday. So damn dusty in here   (dailymail.co.uk) divider line 26

Dear sirs,

My name is derpyhoovesBrony and I am 32 year old.
I have been playing with many My Little Pony sets
and products since I was about 27 years old. I have
Pony playsets, Plush, Pedophile Lure sets and more.
I participate in a Brony Meetup to get tips on luring
7 year olds into my mom's basement. (I haven't been
diagnosed with pedophilia yet) I love rubbing my little
pony merchandise against my genitals at home (I play
with them every day).

A couple of years ago, I saw the PRINCESS LUNA MINKY
SOCKS PLUSH (Hasbro #37436) and fell in love with it. I
wanted it right away, but my mom told me that I had to pay
for my part of the cable bill instead. For two years I kept
all the money I got from unemployment and SNAP money
(I claim a fake child for tax purposes). I also get money
for letting doctors experiment on me. At last, a couple of months
ago I had my $40 and was ready to buy the Plush My Little
Pony of my dreams!

Sans comic does however describe most Asperger's. The jokes: They don't get 'em.

Hey. That does look like a neat set.

I wonder if there are any on ebay.

Yep. Here's one. $175 starting bid. Seems a bit steep, but this seller j.groccia, is just over in Massachusetts so shipping should be relatively short.

God-is-a-Taco: Oh, and as for the article: This shows how much LEGO has changed.

[i.dailymail.co.uk image 634x425]

Look at that crap. How much of that is actually assembled by the kid? There's probably a base model that's 90% of the thing itself, and there's nothing you can do creatively with it.
There's puzzles for that thing, even 3D puzzles. LEGOs should be stimulating young minds about turning concepts into designs.
This is a train. It will always be a train. You can't modify it, because then it wouldn't be a train.

thread full of spoiled bastards. i don't even know if Lego existed when i was a lad, i know all these great toys everyone farking talks about on the internet weren't ever at my house. i played outside with a fly swatter and a ball - peen hammer, killing flies & ants all summer long. my parents were both frickin' loons so god forbid they got me diagnosed. i didn't find out i was crackerjacks till i lost it at work back when i was 38. can you farkin imagine? humiliating shiat. now i take out my anger writing trash on the internet, bitter and lonely, and still no Legos for the Kritter. son of a biatch. wheres my fargin Legos? dammit to hell.

Yoyo: elffster: I loved my giant Lego set I got a long long time ago. It was just bags of different bricks. I made all sorts of things with them.

A few years later the specialized sets started to come out, with the weird shaped pieces and hinges and other doo-dads. But I really just needed that big pile of regular Legos for building.

You go ahead and play with the plain bricks. However those of us destined to become mechanical engineers instead of civil engineers needed the new bits with moving parts.

/and it's and MS, not a PhD.
//the cost/benefit analysis for PhD is negative.


and for the train engineers...Duplo

The reason why the kid has asperger's is so that a story would be written about how Lego helped in getting his most wanted toy, and the readers would be given an opportunity to view Ms. Hayek's beautiful body.

kroonermanblack: Not to studman or anything, but not really? She's average, isn't fat, and has giant tits. Her face is..not that great. The tits look like they're being trussed up with some major industrial engineering too. Not every woman with giant tits is the new Christina Hendricks.


The new Christina Hendricks? That pale ginger whale wishes she could look as good as Salma Hayek. Hayek has been causing spontaneous boners since before Hendricks even guested on an episode of Firefly.

Can't modify it? What in the hell do you mean "can't modify it"?


Once you put a Lego set together, you can't take it apart and arrange it in different configurations. Everyone knows that.

Two things:

The parents are pricks. They made him save up for TWO FARKING YEARS? Have a heart and go 50/50 on in with the kid for fark's sake. Maybe 6 months to a year at the outside. Not two years.

Secondly, this was from a story linked on the side. She's 46.

Holy shiat, what a goddess.
