Gear  |  News
This is James Byrne, it is hishands, James lost his left thumb in a carpentry accident. Doctors unsuccessfully tried to re-attach it, so they proposed an alternative: "Why don't we use your dominant left toe instead?" He said yes.
"Apparently, James' thumb was vital for his work, paver and plant operator, so the answer was easy for him.
The operation was a success, although he still can't fully move the thumb naturally: "I can't bend it yet but I hope to be able to do so soon. It rotates and I can give it a good wiggle. I am so, so pleased that I had it done. It is just such a relief that I'll be able to get back to work soon." He would have to return to surgery to remove the wires that currently secure the bones in place, but otherwise everything seems perfectly fine."
'James will have to learn to re-balance, without his left great toe, on to the ball of his foot but he will be able to walk and jog normally. 
'The thumb is the dominant digit. Without it, James would not be able to do the things that we take for granted, like holding a pen or opening a door.

Gear  |  News
This Friday, NASA will launch an Atlas V rocket that will be contain a very special payload - three secret Lego minifigs. "Not only will the rocket be carrying Juno, a space probe that is being sent to Jupiter to study the fifth planet from the Sun, but there will be a few unique stowaways. The figures spent $15,000 carving these 1.5-inch tall figures out of solid blocks of aluminum to make sure that they don't cause the spacecraft to crash into Jupiter by accident. The beardy guy with the lightning bolt on the left there is Jupiter himself, next to him is his wife (and, uh, sister) Juno holding a magnifying glass, and rounding out the trio is Galileo, who's got a model of Jupiter in one hand and a telescope in the other. It is scheduled to arrive at Jupiter in 2016, where it will spend a year orbiting the gas giant, and and crash into the planet’s surface."
