* Fear not - in a very real sense they haven't been wasted... by or on any age group.

* The Lego Metaphor has proven quite potent in the field of learning objects, open-source, oop & a whole new concept/market in custom DIY biz software spearheaded by http://www.coghead.com.

* Check it out - I kid you not, heh. ;)

* Then of course there is Lego MindStorms NXT with Java Brains

Whimper...Mindstorm costs too much for my poor checkbook :(

I'll just have to stick to my poor-man's(free) Mindstorm, LDraw.

I made actually war more accurate looking Warzone 2100 stuff out of -real- legos years ago...I was that obsessed with the game. Me and my brother would have tabletop-ish games with them.

Ah, simpler times. ._.;

Man, sometimes I wish I could still do that.

...well, technically, I can. I still have them. But man, I'm 18. Thats just pathetic...

...sometimes I think some people don't outgrow these things society just tells you "Your too old to do this!" and it convinces you sub-consciously.

Then society just doesn't know how to have fun:)

Granted, making somethings has lost it's appeal it's lots of fun to explore what can be built, how can it be built, and above all just making stuff because the a whim told you to :P

It's just another means of being creative. The "Your too old for that" line is just because Lego are attached to being a child's toy.

If playing with Logos is anything like playing with a baby's pacifier I'm not sure I want to be 'older' :P

(I am older then 18, btw. Just don't expect me to answer how much older :P)

Agreed, you're never too old to play with Lego.  One of the only things I'm looking forward to when I have kids is playing with Lego with them.

It's never 2_Late to play with legos, so to speak.
