Might steal your idea and make a floor stander 

I stole the idea from Pinterest. Tons of examples on there. Believe it or not there’s a company that sells them for $399 a pop. 
 

If I was to build a tall one, I’d probably use galvanized hard pipe as the upright. that or build some crazy steampunk looking one out of random parts. Like gears and connecting rods.

I think you will be speechless and shit yourself when you see the next piece I build. :D

We definitely have quite a few with the "no fucks given" mindset.

A lot of lifers with nothing to look forward to, that are young gang members.  Gang politics run the subculture.  Can make for a very difficult work environment.

And I love Lego, but then I always have, and was a huge part of my childhood.  Now get to build it with the kids.

And yes, gym time is huge.  It's a great stress reliever.  And keeping in shape for myself and my family is very important.  I also play volleyball twice a week as well, so long as I'm not on shift.

LEGO for life! One of the most relaxing pass times I’ve found. My 2yo granddaughter is super into them so have a new building partner. 
 

mad props on dealing with the shit you do at work. I’d need to heavily disconnect in my off time if I did that.

My vote is build a tall steampunk.  They look awesome.

Believe me my mind ran wild with ideas. Kept it simple for the sake of completion in a timely manner though, for gift purposes. 
The next one I built will be for myself, to use at my job. So on the lookout for parts...

A weighted base is important. I am routing steel plates into the wooden base under the hubcap of these as we speak. 
Had originally planned on an old farm gear for the base, but found the hubcaps.

Funny you mention this.  I've wanted to create some art of tbe same essence for my living room.  I was going to dedicate one wall to each of the 4 strokes for representation.

You’ve got my vote. Would love to see a shot when it’s done. :D

So....  I'm now on that green bubble master race now.  Maybe 90% transferred from android and stumbling like bambi on ice.

 

Holy cow.

I thought you Appletarded yourself a year ago

I have a piece in works that is going on nearly 15 years without motion.  One sticking point that has me waffling.  You gave me some inspiration to get it moving.

To be fair on the time, when I scrapped my car I pulled off particular parts of it to use for a project later.  Until I moved here I didn't need what I was going to build and it will go in a room I never go in so my motivation was not high.  Then we had kids and they trump everything for me.

Nope.

 

I have had the same galaxy for a bit more than a year.  I broke 2 back to back, and then 3 days after getting the Galaxy 9+ with a protector and a case, someone bumped into my arm and knocked it to the ground in Miami and I swore I would keep it until I paid it off on the monthly plan.  The Catholic in me needed some good flagellation as the phone replacement costs were going past cocaine and hooker indulgences and that's just not gonna fly with my budget.

 

It's great so far though.  I have a bazillion other android or windows options around though so maybe I'm not a good judge of what's good for Mr Everyday.  For the guy who wants their phone for creating media and doing work though.... this is the king of the hill.  I'll miss some of the consumer and media options from android but this is so much more efficient.

Kids always should be for most situations. For some they are the motivation to make changes, but unfortunately they are on the sidelines during those changes.

More efficient?  I am curious for what.

I like moving through apps better.  

 

The UI and how I interact with it is better.  I use Siri and find it works and it pleasant vs google was a bitch.

 

Camera is frustrating because I am not used to it yet but much more enjoyable to just shoot than anything I've used in a long time.  I bet I would like the pixel more for the stills if I wanted to nitpick but this seems to shoot faster and the video is a lot better.

The camera does take a touch of getting used to, but overall not bad.

It's somewhat nice being in an apartment on Halloween. No kids came to the door in the last few years, and none this year. It keeps the dog quiet, but I am looking forward to having a house in the future and passing out candy.

You should have demoed a pixel.  I fucking hate the Samsung gui.  Fucking terrible interface.  I find the iPhone clunky
