    The article is interesting, and I commend the man for the work he's done, but the title is a bit misleading. It should read "...37,112 impressions wear out a 1970s white 2x3 brick when repeatedly connected, with no offset, to a second 1970s white 2x3 brick."

    Perhaps but he said he's planning to test 90's bricks and also modern ones too. That will be interesting.
