@pcantin I don't know how to explain it other than the axles on one side spin the opposite direction of the other.

comment What is the basis of purism in LEGO building?
I've edited it to try to have it focus on one question. I think some of what you want to know should be split into separate questions, although the one about other toys isn't really on topic.

comment What is the basis of purism in LEGO building?
-1 This is subjective. If you want to be pure, be pure. If not, don't. If you're entering a contest then use whatever the rules are. It's as simple as that.

comment What is a good ratio to buy bricks in?
@ErikOlson I think it can be answered in a constructive way. There is a subjective part, but also an objective part relating to piece averages across sets. Experts know that there are a myriad of ways to build something, but they know that it is better to use piece A instead of B when building which is how ratios come about.

comment Does the LEGO company sell LEGO brick organization bins?
These are the best containers I've used: harborfreight.com/24-divider-storage-container-94458.html -- Pull-out bins tend to be a hassle when you want an individual piece as you have to search for it.

comment What is inside the “weight element” brick?
This seems like it's correct. I'm going to do what Zhaph said and test it with a magnet.
