# Weight of the titanic according to GMC

July 5th, 2008 at 04:16 pm

For some reason GMC is building lego titanic this week and estimating the weight. He took a calculator formed some theory on how much each person would weigh, multiplied by number of people, and added in the weight of the life boats times 20.

I no longer remember the exact number he came up with, but since he forgot the weight of the cargo, hull and even the water in the swimming pool (pools?) he was quite a bit off. but it certainly was interesting to here his reasoning.

He then decided he could more accurately figure out the weight of the toy one he built by estimating the weight of the bricks and multiplying by the estimated number of bricks used. he came up with just over 6 pounds (it was a big contraption he built...)

Unfortunately we have no way of weighing them to see if he is right or not. we do have a small balance but the weights are only in 10 grams and 5 grams...not very helpful in determining small weights.

Do you have a human scale? Can GMC lift his ship or is it too big? You could weigh him without his ship, then with his ship and subtract the difference. We've done this before. Wow, what an ambitious project he's done. Awesome!

That is very industrious for a little one. Did you get a picture? Take the thing with you to the grocery store and use the fruit scales, I'm sure the manager would agree to that.

sorry already taken apart for other building (squirt guns) though next time I might consider the grocery store...
