When I was little I swallowed a small metal ball, it got stuck in my throat and I had to vomit it out. Funny thing is that my dad told me not to put it in my moth about 5 minutes earlier.
I sure do miss him...
He's not dead I just haven't seen him for a week or so

You shouldn't put balls in your mouth because your dad tells you too.

Wow, there are a number of things my dad told me not to put it in, but a moth? You must have had one hell of a childhood.

Do you still have issues with balls getting stuck in your throat?

I'm just guessing but I think the reason is physics...If the holes wouldn't be there it wouldn't be possible to stick the head completely on the neck...the air inside the head couldn't leave and the neck would only go halfway in. All lego men would look like freaky human giraffes
#25 to #14 - Rascal (03/13/2014) [-]
also hats...

Once more, physics have busted a wunderful myth...
#68 to #14 - maetira (03/13/2014) [-]
No one mentions the fact that at least when they began producing the minifigures, that they didn't originally have the holes?

Maybe I'm a bigger Lego nut than I had figured....
User avatar #103 to #14 - sciencexplain (03/13/2014) [-]
You're actually right. If no air could escape the pressure would maximize in the small gap and the plastic could split if they forced it.
#44 to #14 - nonanonnon (03/13/2014) [-]
Plus the top lets hats stick on.
User avatar #61 to #44 - Scorch (03/13/2014) [-]
plus if you put the hat on their won't be airholes anymore so you'll still die ^^
#72 to #14 - Rascal (03/13/2014) [-]
uhm... legos back in my day didnt have holes on the top of their heads and they worked just fine.
#32 to #14 - Rascal (03/13/2014) [-]
Then why are the one stud ones able to connect?

Myth busted.
User avatar #104 to #32 - sciencexplain (03/13/2014) [-]
The studs don't force the pressure to maximize in the hole. They only take slight volume and there is plenty space.
#31 to #14 - Rascal (03/13/2014) [-]
if you think a area that small can create enough air pressure to make this problem...
you are oh,so,very wrong. :/ nice try though. but trust me. takes WWAAAYYY more air than that
- i work on pneumatic cylinders for a living
#33 to #31 - muffinssnuffims (03/13/2014) [-]
Yeah but they wouldn't stick near as well. Also, they're really light and small, and little kids have to work on them.

They'd probably not have too much of a problem forcing them down, but they'd probably have a hard time pulling them back off, since it already takes a fair amount of force for a child considering that the head is a bit hard to grip.
#35 to #33 - Rascal (03/13/2014) [-]
you are contradicting yourself...
you are saying they would be harder to get on, yet harder to get off.
negative air pressure = hard to get off easy to get on
positive = vice versa.
it can not go both ways
unless you had the head filled with a substance like nitrogen, where the expansion rates are much less extensive than air... therefore in cold weather they would come off easy and stick well in warm weather do to the chaning of pressure.
osmosis man
#36 to #35 - muffinssnuffims (03/13/2014) [-]
Yes it can, but not because of pressure. Quit trying to sound smart.

I specifically said grip. It is easier to push the head on because you can push on the whole top, but the sides are harder to grab and have a low coefficient of friction. Thus, despite the pressure stuff being the same, it is harder to remove than to put on.

I already specified grip was the problem in the previous comment.

Dumbass. Read before you try to be a smartass.
User avatar #38 to #36 - dudeyouisnasty (03/13/2014) [-]
Not to hate on anyone, but i'd like to say that the air can just flow around the sides of the peg.
User avatar #39 to #38 - dudeyouisnasty (03/13/2014) [-]
I dont remember the old ones having the holes or having problems staying on.
User avatar #93 to #35 - anthonyh (03/13/2014) [-]
It's hard to get on because of the pressure inside, and it's hard to get off because once the air is out, it creates a vacuum you ******* .

So if they're wearing a hat the kid's ****** ?

So what happens if they swallow a regular piece?

not wow

Ditto. learn something new every day on F.J i guess.
User avatar #79 - pizzaweed ONLINE (03/13/2014) [-]
except, you know the stick part you put the head on? no hole. Air doesn't do down it.
User avatar #80 to #79 - pizzaweed ONLINE (03/13/2014) [-]
or are they talking about the heads exclusively?
User avatar #83 to #80 - xsirwafflezx ONLINE (03/13/2014) [-]
Heads exclusively I think.
User avatar #85 to #83 - pizzaweed ONLINE (03/13/2014) [-]
Ah. Then this content does make sense

Wont work if you swallow it sideways.

so what happens when you put the hair piece on top? LEGO HAIR KILLS CHILDREN.

also why there is one in my dick

Bic ballpoint pen tops have holes at the top for the same reason.
#98 - bluzzerstream (03/13/2014) [-]
That's the most retarded thing I've ever heard. It's clearly so that the air won't gets stuck inside the headhole while pushing it onto the torso. If there was no hole you would have to squeeze out all of that air between the inside of the head and the peg holding the head and that would most likely ruin the kids fingers.

Second thing, explain why not all legos in that case has a ******* hole through them. Do people believe kids automatically go for the head before a delicious 4x4 cube.

Last thing, I think this is fun cuase as a young kid I swallowed a feather that you put on a lego hat and nearly suffocated but my dad managed to pull it out with a finger before I'd fainted or the ambulance had arrived. NOT LYING!

Aren't those for hats and helmets?
User avatar #6 to #4 - masterjogi ONLINE (03/12/2014) [-]
thats the curve, but there is a hole in the center of the ring on head pieces

the diameter of the orifice would not be patent enough to support adequate respiration.... plus the overall size would not be substantial enough to snare in the airways, it would most likely go directly into the right bronchus if it even had the opportunity to go into the larynx

**** im so tired of these ****** "facts".....
