    Purported piles of bricks are inexplicably popping up near protests where there is no construction going on.

    They're being covertly funneled in from Iranian and Russian brick dealers.

    No doubt. If you look underneath, it'll likely say Made in China.

    In case anyone actually wants to know, Lego is manufactured in Denmark, Hungary, Mexico and China.
    I haven't seen anyone putting forth the evil Danes as possible outside influencers, but they've done it before, so...

    (sure, it was circa 800 AD, but do people ever REALLY change?)

    Go ahead and get excited about physical bricks. I know the truth - your computers and cellphones will be bricked.

    Well, they do insist that the plural is "Lego" rather than "Legos" which sounds absolutely ridiculous, so you might be onto something.

    No one really knows. There's at least one video of a black woman confronting a car of white people who were trying to hand out bricks to black people. I know I don't believe a damn thing the police say about it because they've been caught lying multiple times. Something weird is going on here, for sure.

    I like this version:



    This one suggests, IMO, that this video may have been filmed in Dallas/Ft. Worth.
    In the latter part of the video, when the woman approaches the car and gets them to open the rear door, then hands a brick to a passenger, regaling the passenger with accusation, there's a shot, ... just an instant, in which the whole license plate of the car is revealed.
    I'm a lousy film editor and photo-shopper, but this what I came up with:

    Where Are All These Bricks Coming From  #BrickGate - snapshot  1.jpg

    It would be interesting to track these POS down.

    I roll with Legos regardless, and get constantly told off by my wife and kids for it. Dirty Dane sympathisers...

    (Sidenote : Had a couple of the most fun weekends of my life in Copenhagen, so...)
