Pile 374,999 more bricks on top of this one, and you're OK.

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.

For the details, check the BoingBoing piece, or go to the original piece by BBC Radio, right here.

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.)
