Life-size X-wing fighter made out of Legos.

Out of this world Lego Starfighter.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and, for Dope Daddy most things Star Wars (except for a certain thing called Jar-Jar) fit the bill, so when the guys behind the best children parks in the world (Legoland, of course) released this video, I declared it to be, well completely Dope!

High gasoline prices, rising unemployment, bad diets & lots of sunshine are not necessarily the Dopest of things, but as with every dark cloud, there is a silver lining:

Bicycle use is increasing in many parts of the world, and it is now “tres chick” to be seen around ridding one. Copenhagen, Paris, NYC, and even Demoines Iowa…

Superior color match matching bike, bag, color & function.

Google Chrome Faster Than A Speeding Potato. (video)

By defintion, Google has always been about speed and innovation, in this video they illustrate what exactly they mean by “speed” in terms that most of us can understand.

“At this point, Google realizes that simply talking about browser speed isn’t enough. They have to show you.Alongside the latest beta release of Google Chrome, the company has made a series of videos that intend to do just that. The Rube Goldberg-ian setup is fairly amazing. While the speed test videos themselves aren’t out just yet, Google has posted the making of the video. It’s a must-watch.”

Perseverance and spirit (video)

Springtime is again upon us, with its eternal promise of better days ahead, greener pastures, and flowers blooming. It is also a perfect time to renew the spirit and remember that perseverance is the drive that keeps us going, and pushing towards our goals, no matter what.

At the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, Derek Redmond, a Canadian sprinter lined up to run in for a place in the finals of the 400m. It was a race that ended like no other, and a video fit to see even on the sunnier days.
