serious LEGOs

From World...

LEGO enthusiasts in Oslo, Norway, have given fact checkers at the Guinness World Records something to consider. A group of builders, including schoolchildren, recently finished constructing a LEGO tower in front of Oslo's city hall that seems to exceed the current world record holder for tallest LEGO tower previously constructed in Munich. According to the Oslo builders, their LEGO tower is just over 99 feet tall—exceeding Munich's LEGO high-rise by 10 inches.

From the LEGO world-record site (!), I found out that their record (pictured on the left) was just surpassed by a 100-foot tower built in the Netherlands (pictured below)! This last one used 700K Legos vs. the previous towers' use of 500K.
