What's In a Name?
One reason, and this could just be myth, is that naming a boat is good luck and not is not - good luck that is. Somewhere back in the day (not sure what that means but heard a lot of that terminology at the conference - "back in the day when... ") people believed that the gods of the oceans, Poseidon or Neptune (choose your culture) kept a ledger of every ocean bearing boat that sailed. If they didn't know the name of your boat or it didn't have one then that would be a bad thing which could ultimately include sinking and drowning - a very bad way to ruin an ocean cruise. " That really wouldn't have helped anyone in Boston in 1790 when all boats were wooden with masts now would it. So, slap a name on the rear of the boat and voila you knew where the person you were looking for was. Before the invention of instantaneous communication - that technology thing - people needed to know what boat a person was traveling on. You couldn't just say, "I'll be on the wooden boat with masts in the harbor. Then the question arose during that leisurely stroll - why were boats named and those names forever painted on the rear end of the boat. Source: J and L Research and Exploration
Lego art: 40 designs that will blow your mind
LEGO advent Last year, the UK's only certified LEGO technician Duncan Titchmarsh built this huge advent calendar sculpture. With a little help from their parents and a few Lego officials, children across Japan were able to create their country the way they wanted it. The total number of Lego bricks used was a jaw-dropping 1. 8 million. Batman Batarang Kicking off our Lego art examples is this brilliant Batman Batarang, which crash landed in London recently to mark the release of the Lego Batman movie. Made from 35,000 lego bricks, it took the team at Bright Bricks 225 man hours to build, with broken pavement, smoke and lights (all non-Lego based) completing the scene of destruction. So sit back and enjoy, as we showcase the very best in Lego art, from both certified Lego professionals and some amateurs whose love for Lego knows no bounds.
