Submission + - Man builds San Francisco with 100,000 toothpicks (

Lanxon writes: In 1977, Scott Weaver decided to replicate the Golden Gate Bridge with toothpicks and glue. When the 17-year-old finished that project, he just kept going, and his hobby became an all-consuming quest to, as he puts it, "blow people's minds" with toothpicks. Mission accomplished, then. Ripley's Believe It or Not offered Weaver $40,000 for his 100,000-toothpick town, but he turned it down without hesitation. "Other than my wife and my son, this is the most important thing in my life," he says. "I just regret that my mother wasn't able to see it while she was alive."
