DRM Chair Self-Destructs After 8 Uses

TrickFred Re:That's not DRM (215 comments)

Here I sit, broken hearted,
Paid a dime and only farted.
Yesterday, I took a chance,
Saved the dime, and shit my pants.

Lego Loses Its Unique Right To Make Lego Blocks

TrickFred Re:Cheap = Good for parents (576 comments)

Quality over quantity is definitely valid, I concur. But my kids' better quality toys are books (My 8 year old asks for books for Xmas, bless his heart), so I don't feel guilty cheaping out on the 'knock-off' blocks which aren't taken care of nearly as well. Hope that helps justify my position - that, and Lego must be more expensive in Canada then the US, since I seem to be the only one mentioning the obscenely high price. :D

Lego Loses Its Unique Right To Make Lego Blocks

TrickFred Re:Cheap = Good for parents (576 comments)

No offense meant at all, but my kids are 8 and 2, and aren't anal-retentive collectors that keep everything pristine - they're rough on their stuff, like normal kids, and lose pieces frequently, and I'm more willing to pay Mega Blok prices to replenish the stocks than Lego prices.

Lego Loses Its Unique Right To Make Lego Blocks

TrickFred Re:Cheap = Good for parents (576 comments)

Still cheaper to buy Mega Bloks and refresh/replace them every year when they start to get worn inside. We usually have to buy a new bucket full once a year or so anyways, due to the inevitable 'shrinkage' - vacuum cleaner, swept up with other detritus when cleaning, spread around the house, or the Bermuda Triangle Effect (they just seem to disappear slowly after a time, just like all the forks in our house - frickin' weird).

My kids have been playing with Mega Bloks for years. When you can buy big buckets of them for $20 when Lego costs $100 or more for the bigger sets, well, the choice is obvious.
