Overnight/early-morning open thread: The iPhone 3L (Lego) edition

Published: September 28, 2009 at 9:09 PM

Planning a visit to Legoland? What better way to call for information than...

Lego iPhone

The Lego iPhone!

Some backstory: Brian built this from various Lego spare bricks, and it's exactly the same size as a regular iPhone. Last night, he decided to play a prank on his mother, and take the "iPhone" into the bath with him. Mom walks in, ready for hair-washing inspection, and sees Brian playing with what looks from 10 feet away exactly like her iPhone.

Much hilarity ensued.

In retrospect, Brian and I decided that he really should have dropped it in the tub, to push the Mom completely over the edge. And... we should have used the Flip to record the whole thing.

Yeah, we're gonna pay for this, and probably soon. Mom is likely plotting as I write.

Anyway, it's the overnight open thread. Post in the comments if any news breaks before I return Tuesday.

Orlando Sentinel has a story about the new get a free ticket for 2010 in place of the get a free ticket for your birthday promotion. It's called "Give a day, Get a day", where if you volunteer at one of the charities of their choice, you get a free ticket. They want to get 1 million people to volunteer one day of community service in 2010. Although there will be a limited supply of free tickets.
