Fair enough, Jerome.

Remember we have to provide very detailed engineering plans for a structure of this ambitious design. My rule of thumb is that it should be able to withstand an 8.0 Earthquake and winds of 200 mph. As a physician, we are trained to follow the maxim, "First do no harm!" So in design a model, I myself, am the most strict critic. I try to remain humble and not dismiss any question of safety.

Under my watch, the guillotine would never fall!

I will send you drawings and supporting calculations down the road!

That's a promise!
