18+ Amazing Records Set with Lego Pieces (No Exaggeration)

When you hear someone talking about Lego, the first thing that comes to your mind are those tiny bricks that fit together so well. You can make all sorts of toys out of them. They don’t seem like a good source for breaking any record though.

Still, in the Lego world, records are being broken very often. Even the Lego Group is a record itself: the largest toy manufacturer in the world. It wouldn’t have come so far without having the cults of performance and pushing its own limits.

Minions vs Superheroes – Which Are the Coolest?

In any story, more or less true, there are heroes. But for the story to be whole, it also needs other characters. Let’s call them “extras”.

So happened to the minions from “Despicable Me”.

The main character is Felonius Gru, a grumpy bald guy, V-shaped, which seems to have skipped a leg workout day. At first it looks selfish, being irritated by the 3 girls – which he adopted at the end. Gru never showed love for his servants – minions – preferring to be cold, but cold things can be good as well; for example, beer.

The minions make so many clumsy mistakes that should make them look undesirable. In spite of this, they’re charming and have an incredible power: they are themselves. Frequently getting everybody’s attention.

So they ended up having their own movie and now they are the heroes. But how would they compare to the famous superheroes?

Let’s do a case study. Let’s say I need to be saved. Who would I prefer to come to my rescue, a minion or a superhero?

We keep hearing more and more about the passion fruit… But what is it really? A huge variety of fruits with weird names keep appearing on the market. We had just got used to the kiwi fruit, mango, papaya, and avocado, and now here comes the passion fruit, the dragon fruit, pomelo, physalis, and many others with complicated names that we can barely remember! And then, in the supermarket, they are sold at steep prices. If only they tasted good! But how can you know?

So you have decided to taste a fruit that your grandparents have never heard of and don’t seem too eager to try it either. Maybe it’s good though, maybe it has more vitamins, maybe it will enhance your lifestyle, or, at least, boost your self-confidence… And after all, if you still want to try one, aren’t you curious to know who gave it this “passionate” name?
