Porco Rosso’s racing plane takes to the skies

1 Share

We’ve featured half a dozen or so Savoia S.21 flying boat from Porco Rosso over the years, but it remains one of my favorite LEGO aircraft whenever I run across a new version. This latest incarnation of the racing plane from the 1992 Hayao Miyazaki film is brought to us by Volker Brodkorb. The airplane’s huge engine mounted forward of the cockpit makes this plane instantly recognizable, as do the striping on the angled wings.

Volker uses curved slopes attached studs out to achieve the sloping shape of the boat-plane’s hull, and the pop of yellow on the front of the propeller is a lovely touch.

Zuck's two-day stint testifying in front of Congress this week after the Cambridge Analytica data scandal has overwhelming dominated the tech news cycle. So naturally, there were tons of memes.

While robot Mark Zuckerborg has always been a popular joke among the Zuckmemes community, a common theme that emerged during his testimony Tuesday was that he looked an awful lot like Data from Star Trek. You know, the android.

Mark Zuckerberg’s manner has always reminded me of someone, but I could never quite grasp hold of it

Just now it hit me, watching him testify about datapic.twitter.com/4Zs2eGlsHD

TwitterFacebook

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was supposed to face a grilling by members of the U.S. Senate on Tuesday and he (kind of) did. Since most of the Senators are not exactly digital natives, some questions proved to be quite revealing of their knowledge on how Facebook's services work. Read more...
