  12. Still ______ about it, after all these years

    One of the things that never ceases to amaze me about raising two boys in the 21st century is how _______ they are about the things I was _______ about as a kid in the 20th century.

    Despite all that has changed over the past 40 years, they, like me at their age, are mad about Star Wars, Tintin, Batman and Lego.

    The story of the brightly coloured interlocking Danish bricks is a phenomenal one.

    For one thing the first brick they made in 1949 still fits the latest pieces rolling out of Lego's factories today. For another, production has been so prolific, if you divided the number of bricks Lego has made by the number of men, women and children on the planet, everyone would have 86 pieces each.
