comment What tool can get two 1x2 plates apart without damaging them?
With the new brick separator being in nearly every non-technic set over $50 (plus most Ideas/Cuusoo sets), it's hard to not have one within reach. :)

comment Identifying Lego kits from unopened bags for library
I think @Mσᶎ pretty much has the right idea. creativity gets messy and there's little point in attempting to catalog the exact element mix.

comment Are there any lego base plates that are compatible with duplo?
First is still first. Just because someone sorts poorly doesn't change what's first. Yay timestamps! :)

comment Can I pitch an idea to LEGO?
Definitely not one-off or even annual. The recent helicopter was fan crated as well.

I keep seeing that some monthly mini model builds are designed by fans, but I haven't researched how those are submitted.

comment Do LEGO bricks float?
It's actually a three-piece hull: bow, stern, and.. uh.. middle. My brother and I had two of these and one fire boat. Made a great trimaran.

Thank you! I agree it's a drag that these things get artificially limited like that.

comment What's the best way to glue/adhese the street baseplates to a plywood table?
Nice, but I'm going to guess that the middle of a baseplate is still going to flex a lot unless you take care as to how you remove elements from it.

comment What can I do with this steering wheel?
As far as LEGO is concerned? I think it's safe to say "yes". Unofficially? Well, imagination is a dangerous thing.

comment What elements do I need to create a smooth multi cheese slope ramp?
Looks good, but how long of a slope could you make like this?

From that pic it seems like not even a half-plate resolution will be perfect, but better. A quarter-plate offset might do the trick.

comment What's a good age to start getting into Mindstorms with my child?
I say there's no hard and fast number, just "when she's ready", and I have faith that you will know that better than anyone else, Chris.

Did you even read the first comment? Clearly you do not know what you are talking about. Thanks for playing.
