Presumably there are lots of non-lego parts. I really doubt he could build an air tank out of legos. I am a little interested in if lots of smaller components could be used to make it smoother or if that would cause other pressure issues. Obviously it would be more parts that could break, but it might have benefits.

It's worth noting that not all LEDs provide good light output. I tested a bunch of them that my parents were trying out and some friends, including a few "natural light" varieties, and only a couple of them turned out to be similar to sunlight. Used a homemade spectrometer (chunk of DVD in a box with a webcam) to see the breakdown in light - most have a huge spike in the blue range, the best were nice and even across all the colors.

You wouldn't expect the violent crime to drop off instantly unless they had a large gun recovery program to get them out of the hands of criminals. The guns were already out there. Looking a bit farther than 5 years (there was a large spike in crime 5 years after), the crime rate dropped to a 40 year low.
