Brony_JesusPope Francis today declared that what people like me who remember that Christianity is based on Judaism have been saying for years.

The Pope said that atheists can get to Heaven.  They have to lead good lives, though.  Just like Christians.  But being an atheist is not going to keep you out of Heaven.

See that?  It's not going to church that proves your worth, it's not pestering people with different religious beliefs, it's not converting a bunch of people, it's living a good life and helping others that makes you a worthwhile human being!  Individual religious beliefs don't matter!  And this is from the leader of the biggest organized religion on the planet!



You know, I had my doubts initially after Pope Benedict, but to tell you the truth? I'm starting to like this guy.
Thor Likes It

This is pretty badass.

I know I tend to look askance at superfans who go overboard with their hobbies.

Not this time.  This is made of pure awesome.  Prepare to die jealous.

This Incredible Full Scale Lego X-Wing Is the Largest Model In History

This is truly unbelievable: Lego has built a 1:1 scale model of the X-Wing fighter using an astounding 5,335,200 bricks! It's as big as the real thing, capable of fitting the real Luke Skywalker—and Porkins.

As you can see in these exclusive Gizmodo images and video, it reproduces the official $60 Lego 9493 X-Wing Fighter. But instead of being 560-pieces and a few inches long, this model uses more than five million pieces and it's 11-feet tall and 43 feet long, with a 44-foot wingspan. Just like the real X-Wing—and 42 times the size of the commercial Lego set....

...Here are all details about the model:

  • Contains 5,335,200 LEGO bricks

  • Weighs 45,979.61 pounds (including bricks and steel infrastructure)

  • Height: 11 feet / 3.35 meters

  • Length: 43 feet / 13.1 meters

  • Wingspan: 44 feet / 13.44 meters

  • 32 builders spent 17,336 hours (about 4 months) to construct

Engines that light up and roar

There's only one thing different from the original model: the engines glow and roar like the X-Wing in the movies.
