It's an important question. LEGO may be durable, but it is not invincible. One day, you'll put two pieces together - or pull two pieces apart - and one will fail.

Which is fine. That's existence for you. Birth, life, death. For humans, we know what to expect. 75 years is a good run. But LEGO?

That, I did not know. Until I watched this video, where science puts two LEGO bricks together again and again until something breaks.

If you can't bring yourself to spare three minutes from your hectic schedules, know that it took 37112 times.
