uhhhh don't tell Frank but i think it's a rather bad example.

Might be a bad example of FLW but it's a good example of a gas station.

Like a gas station, only more so.

Yes, a petrol station.

No, it looks like a proper American gas station, of the type we don't have here. I used the word deliberately. :beer:

:beer:

I just hate the word 'gas' (or a word starting with 'gas') being used for something that's clearly a liquid. Now if they just sold CNG or LPG etc, I'd be fine with that...

Do you have a problem with the word "rocket"? I mean, it's not made of rock.

Apple to oranges.

The difference between a rocket launcher and a stone thrower is just the speed at which the projectile is propelled so your example is invalid.

Funko
26-07-2011, 12:23:15
Nope. The difference is that in the rocket launcher the projectile is self propelled, in a stone thrower the thrower provides all the propulsion.

That can't be Frank Lloyd Wright's work. It shows no signs of falling apart.

He was ahead of his time. That's great in art, but a problem in structural engineering.

underwater fallingwater, that's genius!

The cantilevered parts of falling water are actually falling, slowly. I took art appreciation in college, you know!? Apparently some of it accidentally stuck... and without the use of nude models.

However his use of laminates was genius!
