Prepare to be Amazed

Imagine the work that has gone into this.  It took 35 years to build and 100,000 toothpicks.

Now I guess he needs a new project perhaps using dental floss, or painting with toothpaste !

Very dedicated indeed. It's stuff like that which is fascinating. It's odd, unique and nothing else like it out there. Unlike this mass manufactured stuff - which don't get me wrong is cool but can become boring after a while.

Re: Prepare to be Amazed

got these via a round robin e-mail
He is 38 years old                                 
It took him 6 years to build a city out of toothpicks
He used 6 mi llion toothpicks and 170 litres of glue.
It can take 6 months to build one building; some of the time standing on ladders

He works at the museum of Science and Technology in Syracuse , New York
Have a look at his creation, he has been called the most patient man in the world.

Yes know what you mean about it becoming boring.  I don't think I would be able to stick with it as he has done.
