But devils aren't cool, they're hot! :devil: But that is a really cute penguin.

Devil and Angel Smurf Figurines.

Besides, Smurf's roll better.

The penguin tower kinda looks like a water tour though... or a grain silo...

Um, not really, more like a giant...um...er...uh...well, Evo, Tsu and MIH know what I'm thinking of. :biggrin: :rofl: :blushing:

I have no idea what you're talking about.

I was wondering, though, if, when Pengwuino designed the tower, he took into consideration the fact that extra internal bracing might be needed. Otherwise, when people were inside, taking the elevator all the way to the top, the whole tower might vibrate vigorously.

Funny, I was wondering what size batteries it would require. :rofl:

I'm sure the massive motors needed for elevators, which might cause this vibration, would require connection to the city power lines

What I'm getting at is: it seems to me a towering, vigorously vibrating thing like that might cause things to achieve a certain threshold during which we might hear groaning, from rubbing structural members, and then things would proceed to a state of relaxation where gravity would take over, and the tower would slowly flop over.

Not sure what you mean. I just think the structural integrity of the tower is very important since Evo and Moonbear seem interested in giving it a thorough workout, riding that elevator up and down, up and down, up and down, up and down.

Good Lord! How did you manage to pull this out of "Why I'm the coolest member on this board?"

Now I know why I don't want to be an engineer...

I'm not sure you want to be inviting smurf to touch your tower wih you. It's really your project, and if the tower needs stiffening there are books and magazines with alot of information and probably even revealing photographs of structural engineering secrets.

I've seen photo essays, for example, where the journalist takes us up under the Statue of Liberty's great bronze drapery to see her secrets. It's actually possible to get inside Lady Liberty, and someday I think I'd like to get inside her.

That makes me wonder. I'm not sure how tall The Statue of Liberty is, nor am I aware of how tall the Pengwuino tower might be. I wonder if you could fit your tower inside Lady Liberty?

Probably!

Lady liberty is very wide and I feel a very hard, cylindrical shaped tower such as the Pengwuino Tower should be able to drive any obscurities into teh walls. I would probably need a protective shielding and proper lubrication... for the tower of course...

Evo certainly seem to be smitten by it. Strange because you don't often see women so taken with engineering. Maybe it's the French Connecion.

Really? It sure doesnt seem like women aren't taken by structural engineering by the structural engineering videos that are so prolific on the internet.

No... my architectual firm has taken al ot of heat from politicians and we are being forced to contract out to women-only firms
