Actually, they are Quaplo (or whatever it is called). Duplo is double the size of Lego and Quaplo is quadruple.

Pretty bad jpeg compression.

Yeah MJ you're right, the reason is I re-compressed Shimon's attached JPGs as they were too large, but compressing a JPG another time is always reducing quality even more. Here's the original files:

I don't know if the blocks are useful in some way. But I bet you can kill someone if you hit him with that suitcase.

I just read the Gartner Web 2.0 report: 'Seven Ways Your Organization Can Benefit from Web 2.0'.

It's interesting, because when I read point 6, I thought immediately about this post! Check out what Gartner say:

"By targeting bloggers and other influential Web users, you can control your organization’s image and influence publicity for the positive."
