...you can't take the (über-thrifty) Germany out of the engineer:
Well this is rich. NBC Bay Area reports that Thomas Langenbach, identified as a VP at SAP's Palo Alto Integration and Certification Center, has been charged with four felony counts of burglary over ill-gotten LEGOs.
Authorities say the German software engineer generated his own fake bar codes, printed stickers with them, then slapped those cheaper bar codes over more expensive kits. And then, it is alleged, he sold that hugely-discounted LEGO loot on eBay for a profit.
I used to have a huge blue denim bag full of legos -- they were once that cheap. If Greece has to exit the Euro, perhaps it should adopt the Lego as its new currency.
