LEGO theft ring in Seattle

Yet another sign that LEGO is the true alternate currency! This story I found yesterday in The Guardian is funny, sad and just amazing in how stupid these people were. Screw crypto, that’s a pyramid scheme! LEGO is the better investment. … Continue reading

Dumb kid with LEGO stuck in his nose for two years
