Autistic Boy Builds Largest Titanic Replica Made Of Lego Bricks

After 11 months of work, his project is nothing short of awesome!

While some people consider autism as a disability, many of those who have the mental condition have proven that they can be exceptional in more ways than one. For instance, a young autistic boy from Iceland was able to build a replica of Titanic using Lego bricks and his work is now being featured in different museums across the globe.

Brynjar Karl Bigisson, now 15 years old, built a Titanic replica made of Lego bricks when he was only 12. After devoting 700 hours in crafting the huge ship with 56,000 Lego bricks, the boy was able to complete a 26 feet long and 5 feet tall replica of one of the world’s most iconic ships within the span of 11 months.

Bigisson shared in an interview:

“It began when I was about 10 years old. I was playing with Legos. I was on the computer after that. I was searching on the internet and I came across the Titanic. I wanted to build a same-size scale model myself.”

With the help of his grandfather, who scaled down the original blue print of the famous ship, the boy learned he needed 56,000 Lego bricks.

While it was the 15-year old autistic boy who spent hundreds of hours building the Titanic replica, he got some help from his grandfather to get things started. As an engineer himself, Bigisson’s grandfather, Ogmundsson, scaled down the original blueprint of the Titanic to the size of a Lego and determined the number of Lego bricks that would be needed his grandson’s project.

For almost a year, Biggison would spend some time in a storage unit near his home building the Lego Titanic replica after school hours. Unknown to him at the time, his work would someday be featured in museums in different parts of the world.

Now 15 years old, Brynjar Karl is definitely proud of his achievement.

“The world calls him ‘Lego Boy’ and that’s just fine with Brynjar. After all, he spent a good part of his young life surrounded by thousands of Lego bricks, the building blocks of his monumental tribute to the 2,208 men, women and children who sailed on the RMS Titanic,” said Mary Kellogg, owner of the Titanic Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, where Biggison’s work is currently on display for the entire 2018.

“It was inexplainable to see the ship. Everything looks so real when you walk through the gallery,” Biggison said.

Why Sin Eating Was Once The Worst Job In The World

Technically, it was a thankless job.

If you think you are unfortunate for having to hold on to a job that you think sucks, bear in mind that at one point in history, there were people who went the extent of risking their salvation just for money. For the so-called Sin Eaters then, it did not matter if they had to suffer eternal damnation in hell for as long they could eat and have some coins in their pockets.

While a Sin Eater is already a thing of the past, there is no questioning that it held the notion as being the worst job in England, Scotland, and Wales where it was practiced from the Middle Ages until the early 1900s. You see, a Sin Eater had to eat a piece of bread placed on the chest of a dying person, otherwise known as a sin-soaked bread, while the family of the would-be departing person watched, prayed, and drank a flagon of ale.

By eating the sin-soaked bread, it was believed then that a Sin Eater could absolve the dying person from his sins, and his chances of entering heaven would improve. ...
