I love the beach, biking, martial arts, rock climping, camping, travel, playing, and anything else that's fun. And I occasionally work too when I run out of money to play with...(c:

My all-time favorite LEGO themes are castle, anchient history and fantasy. I also love the now retired DUPLO Castle line.

I'm a purist in general, however for my minifigs I also use custom pieces from amazing customizers like Brickforge, BrickArms, Little Armory, Arealight, BrickTW, etc. Life is short, customize it!..(c;

I also run a LEGO-related blog, http://TheBrickBlogger.com/ where I share pictures, tutorials, news, and all things I learn and discover about the LEGO hobby. Updated frequently, so come by for a visit!...(c:

comment What is the term for the very tiny, single-peg, miniature figures from the SHIELD Helicarrier?
LEGO fans call them nanofigs, whereas LEGO refers to them as micro-figs. They are about 3/4th of the height of microfigs, and very-very tiny.

comment Does someone know where i can find this lego brick?
I guess that could work, although as a collector myself, I would never part from a brick like that. It is ultra-rare! :)

comment Does someone know where i can find this lego brick?
I have thought of that, but the OP's photo definitely looks more neon color than yellow. Especially at the edges. It could be just picture quality though. Trans-yellow is definitely easier to find. You linked to the one with frosted interior, and there is also the regular one listed here: bricklink.com/catalogPG.asp?P=3001&colorID=19

comment Building a 45 degree brace
Yours look like a reasonable solution. I would approach the problem the same way as you did. Perhaps also trying out hinge plates besides just hinge bricks. That way you could smooth down the top with tiles, and also you have more room for adjustments for the angles and connections.

comment Building a 45 degree brace
It's a good idea to have at least one or two of most pieces around so you can experiment with them in real life. LDD is not the best to figure out if two pieces would fit. The pieces you are using here are not expensive, so it may be worth to get some to play around with the angles.

comment Building a 45 degree brace
Have you checked if you elevate or lower the bottom connection by one plate will that allow you to connect the horizontal plate at the top. It may adjust the angle a bit, but at some point the two should connect.

comment Representing pregnancy on LEGO minifigs without a dome
This is the absolute strangest question I have seen here. I don't even know what to start. Fetal carrier, pen, jail-cell, pieces coming off violently during birth, pregnancy dome???!!! This makes me scared! :(

comment where can I find simple Lego ideas
You might consider checking out the LEGO Adventure Book. There are two volumes available now, and they are full of interesting ideas (I wrote a review on the first one here: thebrickblogger.com/2012/12/…) They are not only City related, but many of them are. Also, if you like LEGO's own designs, you can download instruction books on LEGO's website and use those for inspiration. They are available here: service.lego.com/en-us/buildinginstructions.

comment Identify minifigure torso - yellow with blue “N” on front
The BrickLink search bar is quite dated and doesn't work too well. In the case of this particular torso what I would have done is to go to the Catalog Tab, than right under it click the Colors Tab, then scroll down to Yellow, click on the first number (which is the number of parts in that color). Then click on Minifig Torso, and sort the results by Thumbnail Gallery. There are only 52 minifig torsos ever made in yellow, so it is really easy to scroll through them. In most cases searching by color like this is a great option.
