Did you know … stepping on a LEGO® brick hurts because of 2 main factors?
The reason for the pain comes down to:
1. LEGO® Bricks are STRONG! A classic 2×2 brick has been tested & found to withstand 432 kilograms (953 pounds) before breaking. So that pointy corner will not bend to your weight!
(The LEGO® chairs are the only piece we have found that regularly break when stepped on.)
2. People have 100 to 200 thousand exteroceptors, or basically nerves, that connect directly to your brain on the bottom of our feet. So when our weight is concentrated on that tiny brick – we feel it!
