Recently, Carol has completed his biggest challenge yet: a working Lego replica of the famous Antikythera Mechanism, created by ancient Greeks in 100 B.C. as a way of predicting astronomical events like eclipses.

@psulli. Go on then, WTF are you talking about. Why 2000 years? What makes you think the universe has "held this design in its clutches for 2000 years"?

We are some weird-ass monkeys, aren't we? And the universe is a weirdo place, too.

It had held this design silently in its clutches, unbeknownst to any living thing for 2000 years. And then **POOF** in less than a decade of study we monkeys are now strumming the design in LEGO.
