Is that smear actually the defender's gray hat that is falling, or is there a different smear?

Rich,
I thought a flying buttress was what you sit on in an airplane, with an armress on each side for your elbows.

By the way, just for the architectural record, that isn't a "flying" buttress. It's just a buttress. A flying buttress is like at the granary of Mission San Jose -- it is only pushing against the wall at the top.


Yeah...you are right...a FLYING BUTTRESS touches a building only at the top of the buttress and there is a gap. What did you expect on only 2 hours of sleep. :? :? :? :? :? :? :?

Don't be ridiculous. There were no airplanes in 1836.

Now I remember. "The Flying Buttresses" was the name of a circus family high-wire act.

By the way, how do you get those smilies to appear in a post?

By selecting a Smilie on the right margin of my typing box. They must have been there when the forum started, because I don't know how to find them either. ;) :? :roll: :D

Buttress or buttrest? I guess the latter is a fancy word for a chair or couch. :D

:idea: I just figured out what happened to Lt. Blake. He was sneaking a drink from the Bee Keeper's keg when that big cannon fired from out there on that prairie. Blake took a big slurpin' drink and thought to himself, "I believe I done just died and gone to heaven." Boy, was he wrong. :D I've always wondered why the Mexicans only took one shot and then quit. Maybe it was all about a bet between two Mexican soldiers. "I bet you can't hit that keg of whiskey from here." "Oh, yeah?. Well watch this!" I think that Grant and Wayne had been influenced by the Geneva Convention where in Article XIII, Section 1, paragraph 2, it clearly states that "using heavy artillery to blow up a whiskey keg ain't no fair way to fight a war." It's very clear about that. ;)
