These fail after 37,112 attempts


What are LEGO Bricks?

How many clicks does it take to get to the center of a LEGO brick? Unlike the question this is modeled on, we have an exact answer – 37,112. Well, almost exact.  You see, Phillipe Cantin tried LEGO Bricks from the 1970s.  His reasoning being he wanted to see how older bricks would fail, then switch to newer bricks.  Then change the brick type up, then add some Transformers into the mix*. Anyway, over the course of 10 days, running constantly, Phillipe got his magic number, now in true scientific fashion, he has to repeat the process a couple more times, so that he can get some more data points, then publish it, and hopefully get a PhD out of it.  That’d be so ace.
