The wall starts pounding with the steady thump-thump-thump of passion. You know, because some masters and doctoral students decided to see what happens when you toss a bunch of Lego bricks…
Since 1958, 472 billion Lego bricks have been made. And even though most of those bricks are hardly bigger than your finger, 472 billion of anything is a ridiculous number. So what could you build with all the Lego bricks in the world? Surprisingly a lot. Like 74 Empire State buildings a lot.

Recently construction began on the second LEGOLAND Discovery Center in the United States. But before any real work could be done, a "Turning of the LEGO Bricks" ceremony had to occur. Yes, it's as silly as this picture suggests.
