    I was a hod carrier one summer in college. It got me in better shape than football or wrestling! :eek: And ... I kind of learned to lay block and brick by watching the guy who was trying to work me to death.

    nah, they're all over the place. looks more like a cow path than a foundation. i can't even lay fake walls, and they just stack on each other.

    i was never good with lego's.:oops:
