I want to know who the artist is, and I want to see the sculpture. I'm not gross, I'm just really interested to know who this guy is because he sounds very similar to a guy that made washes like watercolor, but with his blood. The works were really cool looking. I'm not really supportive of him using his own blood, but the works look cool, especially with all the different shades of red. I can't stress enough that I'm not attracted to how the pieces where created, at least the part about the blood, I just thought the works looked awesome.

Wanna know why fire engines are red?

This is why: Because they have eight wheels on them and four people, and four plus eight is twelve, and twelve is a foot and a foot is a ruler, and Queen Elizabeth was a ruler, and Queen Elizabeth was also a ship, and the ship sails the sea and in the sea is fish and fish have fins, and the Finns fought the Russians and the Russians were red and that's why firetrucks are red.

Dwarves should be correct though, it sounds so much better than dwarfs. Dwarfs can still be used as a verb, but dwarves should be the plural noun.

Given that 1 LDU (1/8 of a plate's height) is 0.4 mm, one would expect a 1x1 brick to be 8 mm (20 LDU) wide. However, on each side of a brick, there are small "clearances" to ensure that pieces next to each other are not too tight. Thus, a 1x1 brick is actually 7.85 mm wide, with a clearance of 0.075 mm on each side.
