Also they’re legos welding would break them. Do what the pro lego builders do and use a very small brush and a bit of acetone, melts the plastic together a little bit.

That basically is plastic welding. Solvent welding, so almost brazing? I don’t know. I’d call it welding informally.

I think the engines blow up just like a full size one might. It also is interesting how they start getting to sounding like actual engines a tiny bit minus the exhaust notes. It’s rad.

The video definitely makes me want to put together a large 3D printed or LEGO radial styled after the ones we import from Czechia. Would be very cool display piece for events and I have access to most of the CAD data from the mfg…

IF only there were more hours in the day :frowning:

[/quote]Nah, that’s still plastic welding formally, too.

It is difficult for me to decide if I find that less or more annoying than the English version.

Holy crap I was in Nagoya the other day and saw a Mr Poopy Butt hole tee. Explains a lot.

Netflix has acquired Mark Millar’s comic book company.

Landed in DC today. Tomorrow I get the keys for my apartment.

Some context:
Night pools are one of the latest trends in Japan. They’re basically rooftop pools that turn into EDM clubs at night.People get dolled up and go to take pictures for social media (and not actually swim). These guys go and disrupt things by…actually swimming.

This is a fun article talking about what would happen if a player put every artifact in Magic: The Gathering into play at the same time. Even if you don’t play the game, I think it’s worth the read.

Of all those cards mentioned in the article, the only one I own is Triskeleton. The only other ones I have ever even seen before are Time Vault, Black Lotus, and the (old) Moxes.
