    This is really interesting. Thanks for posting this. How would we learn about esoteric subjects with as interesting comments in a nice intelligent way without sites like this.

    pretty cool:

    The Lego Group's motto is det bedste er ikke for godt which means roughly "only the best is the best" (more literally "the best is never too good").[2] This motto was created by Ole Kirk to encourage his employees never to skimp on quality, a value he believed in strongly.[2] The motto is still used within the company today. By 1951 plastic toys accounted for half of the Lego Company’s output, although Danish trade magazine Legetøjs-Tidende ("Toy-Times"), visiting the Lego factory in Billund in the early 1950s, felt that plastic would never be able to replace traditional wooden toys. Although a common sentiment, Lego toys seem to have become a significant exception to the dislike of plastic in children's toys, due in part to the high standards set by Ole Kirk.[5]

      on that note, I did some digging around the name LEGO - it stems from "Leg Godt" meaning "play well" in Danish.

          New Scandinavian proverb - there are two ways to live life - first class, or no class.

            Or as Ole would have said it: der er to måder at leve livet - første klasse, eller ingen klasse.
