Return of the Ocean-Bound Giant Lego Man

posted by Jason Boyett

Over the weekend, an unidentified 100-lb., 8 ft. tall Lego man washed up onto the beach at Siesta Key, Florida. He’s wearing a shirt that says “No real than you are.”

A guy named Jeff Hindman discovered it, photographed it, and contacted the police. The authorities have taken it but will return it if no one claims it after 30 days. Similar giant Lego figures turned up along the shorelines of Holland (in 1997) and England (2008).

Clearly I need to spend more time along the seashore.

You would think it would be easy to find the makers of 100 lb, 8ft tall Lego men and figure out why three of them have washed up out of the ocean.

As of this post I'm shutting down my Dadequate blog. It's been less than half a year since my first post here, but it's time to move along to other projects. Nothing dramatic -- I'm not quitting fatherhood or anything. But I've had a really busy last few months, my posting frequency has suffered,

The Crazy Physics of Starling Flight
Sorry for the paucity of posts this week and last. I've been knee-deep in my next book and am facing a self-imposed deadline. In the meantime, check out this video of a flock of starlings. The physics of bird behavior in flocks is absolutely fascinating, and I can't begin to explain or comprehend

Halloween
The great thing about the persistently growing zombie fad is that anyone -- at any point during their day, regardless of their activity -- can be turned into a zombie and therefore find themselves stuck in that outfit for the rest of their undead lives. Thus, our costumes for 2011: Zombie Businessma
