*uses bottles to build an AA facility*
@DeadXOnix, alcoholic architects?
@Canadas bad side, anonymous architects?
@Channing Taintum , drunk builders of mystery?
@DeadXOnix, Anal loving Architects?
@DeadXOnix, you'd see them licking the walls for the slightest taste of beer LOL
@Captain Kirk Hinrich, close, it was anal addicts. It works because some of them put the bottles in there bum :)
@DeadXOnix, these are all fantastic band names.
@ A Sad Blow Job, now I'm trying to think o the lyrics to Anal Addictions first hit song.
@DeadXOnix, Anonymous Anals?
I got this; I'm a licensed architect. No...really. So, the issue with these "building bottles" (which were in fact funded AND commissioned by one of the Heineken family a few decades ago after noting the poor state of the built environment & the surplus of Heinie empties on the quaint Caribbean resort island they were vacationing at) was not an issue of compressive strength; the hollow bottle shape had that in spades. Nor was it the brittle nature of glass; the strength of the wall is also derived from the matrix of mortar with steel wire truss reinforcing imbedded in every sixth mortar bed. No, the Achilles heel of this system was that you cannot cut the glass units to accommodate anomalies such as door /window openings, gable rakes or long span openings. For that reason the only known structure made of these units is a simple garden shed built on the Heineken family estate more than 50 years ago, and of course the pristine sample panel pictured above that resides in a museum
@DarkSock, you wouldn't need to cut out windows, seeing as it's made of glass. Plus green is a nice coulour to have shinning on you 24/7.
@DarkSock, could they just use normal bricks or something else for the anomalies. The rest of the place would be bottles besides near the doors or windows?
@DarkSock, so people in glass houses should not throw stones?
@Random thinker , perhaps they should get stoned instead… Off of Heineken!
"Honey, you need help." "No I don't! I'm perfectly fine!" "HONEY YOU DRANK HALF THE HOUSE."
Hmmm... Building buildings with it... It's made of glass.. What could go wrong?!
When Heineken bottles were rectangle*
*builds house, immediately throws stones
I love Heineken
Must be some hard bottles to be used as bricks...
Well, whoever lives in those houses better not throw stones.
Because people they live glass houses ... Shouldn't live in glass house
Better not throw stonesz
But then they can't throw stones.
