The Guinness world record for tallest LEGO tower has been officially broken once again, this time in Budapest, Hungary by an awesomely determined group of schoolchildren and some specially trained grownup helpers. Constructed in front of the city’s iconic St. Stephen’s Basilica, the new tower stands 114 feet (34.76 meters) tall, breaking the previous record by just a couple feet. When you consider how small LEGO pieces are and how tall this tower is, two additional feet is pretty impressive.

The next time you reach for a toothpick consider the painstaking creations of Virginia Beach-based artist Bob Morehead, who has spent the last 30 years using wooden toothpicks and glue to create awesomely intricate sculptures and buildings.

Morehead’s treehouses and towers each consist of thousands, sometimes tens of thousands, of tiny toothpicks. But his largest work to date is Toothpick City. He’s been working on it for 8 years so far and its toothpick count is now well over 100,000.

Visit Bob Morehead’s Facebook and deviantART pages to check out more of his tremendous toothpick sculptures.
