MIT Round 2 Mark murphy Vs. Popcorn .: I love it when a plan comes together.
This is my entry to the second round of the MIT. We were given a quote from the A-Team "I love it when a plan comes together" and we had to build whatever came to us from that even if we didn't have any background knowledge. When I saw this quote I thought for a long time and then I thought this sounded a lot like the tower of Babel from Genesis chapter 11. In that story a great plan came together but it didn't stay like that for long.
About this creation
MIT Popcorn's Page Popcorn's entry


Genesis 11:1-4: "Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. As men moved eastward, they found a plain in Shinar and settled there. They said 'Come, let's make bricks and bale them thoroughly.' They used bricks instead of stone, and tar for mortar. Then they said, 'Come let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves and not be scattered over the face of the whole earth.'

These pictures show the people building the tower.









Genesis 11:5 "But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower that the men were building."



Genesis 11:6-7 "The Lord said, 'If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.'"


Genesis 11:8: "So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city."













Genesis 11:9 : "That is why it is called Babel- because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth."

Quoting LEGO Lord The quoations are nice and well fit the concept of the model, but, the model itself is quite too colourful. Maybe tan or dark tan would work best, perhaps? :)
Unfortunately I do not have enough pieces that aren't currently used to make something this large.

I like that you took the quote and went with something other than just the show it was from. However my vote goes to your opponent.

Can't believe I am this late and still no other judges have voted. Well, this was a nice try, but my vote went to Popcorn.

Interesting take. At least somebody's plan came together.

I'm sorry, but isn't this more a story about what happens when a plan falls apart? ;) Interesting take on the quote, I just wish there were more of the tower built...it has a good base going. :)

Quoting Ian Spacek Ha! Ha! Ha! The tower of Babel! That's a great idea! I like how you decided to use Biblical history in your entry! And by the way, you are one of the candidates for MELO Admin, but I can't promise anything yet.
Thanks for letting me know! I just hate not knowing what is going on.
