Bricking it!

Hi all,

I got bored, and worked out that 1 average sized house brick weighs approx 4.5lbs.

If you can imagine holding just one brick in your hand, and feeling the weight of it, it gives you a good sense of what 4.5lbs is.

I have lost nearly 13 bricks off my body.

I may aswell of been carrying 13 bricks in a bag on my back, I have now thrown them all away, and I am looking to start building my new life with them ;)

How many bricks have you lost? lol

Knowing how much a brick weighs, it's almost unimaginable to have to CARRY that sort of weight! :eek:

Originally I lost 34 bricks! :eek: But I've picked some back up again, so nearly 22 bricks lost for me at the moment, I have to lose another 8 to be where I want to be! :rolleyes:

Holy Cow - when I did LL in 2008, I lost 31 bricks!!! I could not even carry a dozen bricks at one time now - let alone 31!!! How in the world could I even move under that load!

Course I have managed to pick a few of them back up over the past year, but that is amazing to think I used to carry that around.

What a great thing to remember. Good idea Richy!!!
Iv lost 25 bricks that's a great way of putting it or another way is I sell minerals for farm animals and the bags are 20kg and 10kgs so yesterday I strapped 2 20kgs n 1 10kg to me n tried to walk about with it it nearly kill t me walking for 2 min with it so glad I'm doing LL
