"Forget the ’60s Space Race between Russia and the US: the current Lego tower pissing match between Brazil and Chile is waaaaaaaaay more compelling."

But what is with the guy wires? Everyone knows that a lego tower needs to stand unsupported in order to be valid.
Its almost as bad as using duplo blocks!

That's crap. I could build one bigger using that method with the lego I have. I'll just stack one block on top of another and make a single block column. I might just "rest" it against another building for a bit of support though but it should still count.
