  1. I’d like to have a 12.5 kg brick… that’s a dream I’ve had since I was a kid. It’s funny how in movies the huge ingots look so light… they’re just throwing them from one another. When the gangsters “collect” them like bricks, I always laugh. These bars are dreadfully heavy. And the 12.5 kg bars are among the smallest of the largest. Some weigh so much I could hardly lift them up using both arms and full strength.
