â€œYou bought this massive Lego Star Destroyer with your very own hard earned money and you have the GALL to tell me you are starting without me??â€
I promptly invade his home and insisted that I be a part of this massive undertaking.
Let me tell you. This is not a task for the easily distracted. Or Poor. The commitment to build the Lego Super Star Destroyer is a commitment not easily broken. Once you open that telephone book of instructions to this incredibly detailed 50 inch (1.27 meters) Lego masterpiece, you better have a lot of time on your hands.
Tran, Ken and I set out to build this set while our better halves decreased Tranâ€™s wine reserves.

Imagine a man with Chuck Norris’ tenacity, Jason Bourne’s fighting prowess, Vlad the Impaler’s viciousness, and Bryan Mills’ motivation. That man pales compared to the single-minded destruction factory that is Tae-Sik Cha, a former CIA spook frantically searching for a missing child. MoreÂ Â»
Clint Eastwood is better known for playing ‘”Dirty Harry” and other hyper-masculine tough guy characters than holding nuanced public policy positions. But the actor is now throwing his weight behind a plan to reduce the country’s massive deficits.
Scientists at Stanford are hard at work trying to improve the efficiency and durability of solar panels— two key factors that have kept the Sun from becoming a more popular source of energy. Their latest effort involves nanocrystalline-silicon, a material that has proven resilient and highly conductive, but not very good at absorbing light. Their solution, nanoshells — hollowed out spheres of silicon that trap and recirculate light much like a whispering gallery does sound. Balls of the crystalline material are dipped in silicon, then hydrofluoric acid is used to eat way the center of the sphere, leaving a path for light to enter. The shells trap the light, allowing more of it to be absorbed, and also reduces the effect of non-optimal angles on energy production. Hit up the source for a few more details.
