What did you do last week? Did you build a 32m tall Lego tower, made of 50,000 bricks, with a team of kids who can pretty much not even talk? Didn't think so!
South Korea's world record-breaking monolith took five days to complete, and based on this footage, was erected upon the backs of forced infant labour. The exact height is 31.9 metres — about the length of a blue whale. That's big! It beats France's previous pathetic record of 31.6 metres, and must really be making North Korea feel terrible. They can't even pull off half-century old rocket technology, and their enemies' babies are constructing towers? How embarrassing. [Architizer]
