Yep you're right! Good on her, honestly that's why I'm not angry. She was so close to getting a pretty decent item for free but her conscience kicked in and she returned it.

Cynical view: she realized just how easily it would come back to her and it was not worth the fuss.

I thought I read here some time ago that that piece was specifically made to do that, that if you compared it to another 2x1 plate, it'd be just a wee bit thinner. I could be wrong though.

Not 100% sure, but they may have meant a tile has a groove round the bottom edge when compared to a plate. That allows this to be legal in Lego's current playbook.

Again, I could be wrong, but the part is listed as same ID as other 1x2 tiles (3069).

A modular I made based of Temple of Airjitzu. The modular had to fit perfectly on the city and the city docks. Where I gave myself a few assignments:

- the modular had to make sure the Ninjago City Docks would get the love it deserved by showing the front of the docks instead of the back (how its supposed to be connected to the city)
- the moc had to be modular, everything is builded by the same standards as a normal Modular. Everything can be detached. Even the tower.
- the moc had to contain the bridge from the Master falls (just because I liked it)
- elements of the backside of the docks needed to come back in the moc (because its not displayed when against a wall)
- the image the designer had in mind with the Temple of Airjitzu had to be captured and in order to do that everything needed the have the same layout Roughly.

I’m pretty happy with the end result and based on the reactions I could make some better pictures and do some finishing touches. I’m curious about your thoughts.

Can we stop pushing “fat-free” as a selling point. I’m sure by now people are coming round to the realisation that sugar is the issue, not normal amounts of fat. Sorry for mini-rant, I just can’t stand it.

The Krispy Kreme in Heathrow used to look like that too, but I haven't been through in a while

Does Heathrow have the facade of an ocean liner anywhere though? Score one for Trafford Centre’s questionable design decisions.

My husband is vegetarian, so we used to buy eggs from the “free range” farms. However, we both got curious about the differences between types of eggs and their background, so we read up about each term.

It seems that this label is just to make people feel better about buying eggs, as there are many pictures that have surfaced of these free range farms showing chickens living in cramped and filthy conditions. Free of cages, sure, but still living in awful conditions. In the US, free range means that chickens must have access to the outdoors, but there’s no regulations as to the quality of the outdoor environment nor the amount of time they’re allowed outside. They could be getting a few minutes, or half an hour then corralled back into their enclosure.

We don’t buy eggs anymore. I don’t like the idea of being misled about the suffering that other creatures had to endure when we can get adequate protein from other sources. It’s just unnecessary and I love chickens :)

Edit: We don’t eat eggs anymore, partly thanks to the curiosity of researching what each label truly meant. We do see local free range eggs at our farmers market, but it’s not worth the moral dilemma for us when it’s not a necessary part of our diet.

Hey, I’m from the UK and got the chance to visit both a free range and caged (but not battery) chicken farm. As you have described, the free range was just awful. It was a large barn with a door leading outside to a similar sized grassy/muddy area. None of the chickens were outside, because chickens as natural animals don’t like hanging out in wide open spaces. Instead they were all crowded into one corner of the barn with chicken poop all around them. The owners said that when there are fireworks or other loud noises the chickens can panic and trample themselves to death.

The caged farm was a testing ground for better ways to farm chickens. Whilst it is far from perfect, the chickens seemed to have a better quality of life. Each separate cage held only 4 chickens iirc and it included scratching posts, toys and a curtained off corner for laying. The floor was over a constantly moving conveyer belt which removed all the poop.

I was blown away how much my perceptions were changed that day, you are spot on saying free range is a label to make us feel better.

Personally I would just turn the attacker upside down so when they pull up they are still pulling down, but this is viable.

My great granddad helped on the committee of air pollution in response to smog in London, which in turn created the Clean Air Act 1956. Clearly it took some time to things to improve judging by the picture date.

Thanks for managing to capture what it would have looked like.

I don't know why this has so low up votes! This is exactly what I like about Lego: you can create everything with creativity (and of course the right bricks) And it hasn't be to be a big moc imho. Also such tiny models can be very delightful and enjoyable! Good work dude!

I don’t think it is, the bracket on the forehead goes over the brick. If this was a sticker you would end up smushing it off when trying to place that piece

Look at the lower line. It’s not 100% straight aligned to the end of the brick. Could be miss aligned printing but i expect it more to be a sticker. We will see.

I dug out my unikitty fig and the printing is a lot tighter to the edge than this image, you could be right!

Yeah, I imagine it's difficult plan geometric cities when you're building without bulldozers based on ever so slight elevation changes and where you've managed to put dukes to keep things dry.

I feel rather conflicting with this comic, why does it pretend like moderating is hard work? That's what having multiple moderators is for, if one finds moderating too tiring or too hard, they can quit, they're not forced to do it, one can also choose to moderate less subs to reduce the workload.

It’s a little tongue in cheek and I also share your thoughts. I think it’s more trying to highlight the generally thankless task it can be.

20 cents for a small piece of plastic, huh...

see more
28 points · 7 days ago

20 cents (which is a highball estimate) for a piece of plastic that has higher tolerances than NASA use, is compatible with the same brick made 60 years ago and will likely last longer than that if treated right.

Seems a fair deal in my book if you have the money

True. I normally wouldn't say anything - but sometimes it helps to show other people that everything they say is total utter bollocks :)
