You know when you have to much spare time when...

{update} Mrs B asked me, "How do you drive an F1 car when its made of match sticks?"

Comments welcome.

... When you have 956,000 (yes you read that correctly) spare match sticks to go round, what do you do? Well, if you are German (and who doesn't love the Germans! Jens, you know who you are), of course you build an F1 car.

And there was me thinking there was nothing obsessive about the Germans....

I quote,

"What do you do when you can't afford a million quid to buy a real McLaren 4/14 Formula 1 car? You spend almost £4,500 building one out of matchsticks, of course.

Wacky German, Michael Arndt spent 6 years building this immaculate replica in his kitchen. And all it took was 956,000 matchsticks and 1,686 tubes of glue. Of course, there’s not much room left for socialising.

Thankfully, it can be broken down – very carefully – into 45 pieces for transport to various matchstick building conventions. Yes, it is insane but you have to admire the single-minded dedication/obsession."
