Broken LEGO (myth)

My wife found a broken LEGO brick in our son's room this morning. My kids apparently managed to break a LEGO brick in half, and with it the associated myth (well, at least a belief I held) that the damned things are in fact unbreakable in a domestic environment.

Absolutely coincidentally, several hours later today, Slashdot's cover page is graced with an entry "How They Make LEGO Bricks" that actually links to a BusinesWeek article "The making of a... LEGO".

(Very Useless Fact of the Day: I keep my laptop (when it sits on my desk connected to an external display, keyboard, and mouse) sitting on 4 LEGO Duplo bricks I stole from kids to provide better airflow to it.)
