What is the tallest possible tower of Legos? (Bigger than 2 Mount Washingtons)

BoingBoing pointed me to a fine answer to that pressing question: "How tall can a tower of Legos be before it crushes the bottom Lego?"
Answer: 375,000 bricks, or 2.17 miles. That's about two Mount Washingtons.
They didn't say how often they accidentally stepped on a Lego in bare feet while doing the analysis. (Every parent winced with the memory when they read that sentence.)
