Nah, at Legoland they make it very clear that the plural of Lego is Lego; they make the stuff so they should know.

Perhaps they were about to say 'Legos' but trod on a piece and so only got as far as 'Leg-ow!!!!!'

Unless the photos is of the ruins on an island actually named Legos of course..geography and geometry were always a little confusing!

The island of Legos is currently unknown by the mighty Maps. Maybe we could build it. How many bricks would that take? The trouble with a Lego pebble beach is that the pebbles float away.

I guess Greece or Denmark would be most appropriate, or we could rename Lagos.

Just checked. one solid cubic meter takes 203450.5 of the 4 by 2 bricks to build.

Considering that the estimated volume for the Dutch Mountain project is 7.7E12 cubic meters, leading to a 1.6E18 bricks requirement.

Maybe it is better to build it hollow, as solid would take Lego about 78 million years to produce that amount of bricks at the current rate.

Considering the vast amount of plastic pollution already in the ocean and that the number of Lego bricks made is believed to be 400 billion – 62 for every person on smiley - earth - and presumably a fair number of those bricks are already at sea, would it be easier to just wait for those bricks to accumulate somewhere and form their own island?

That's definitely cheaper, considering 2x4 bricks cost between 10-20 cents each. You may get a discount though...

You can't put the island of Legos in the Aegean. smiley - yikes The Greeks are already trying to sue people over Lesvos. See, 'Lesbians' are people who live there... smiley - rofl

A friend of mine from Thessaloniki once said a mutual friend, 'You know she's from Lesvos?'

Me: 'I thought she was from Limnos.'

Petros, impatiently: 'She is. But she's also from Lesvos....'

This went on for awhile. smiley - run

Apparently, LEGO employees receive a golden brick after 25 years of service. These are valued at atound 12000 euros when auctioned. Wonder of The Argonouts know this...
