The Alignment Image

Last year, I went on vacation to Athens, Greece.

At some point, I'm up around one of those 2,000 year old buildings, and sizing up the column there.

I stood there for a good five minutes....looking at this 'wobble' on the column, and I seriously wanted to fix it.  But you know how the rules are...."don't touch".

If you were to build something these days and it was this far out of alignment.....you'd freak out and some county safety inspector would come out and cite you for something.

My guess is that one day....with the right wind and some Alabama guy visiting and leaning against it....it'll wobble enough to fall, and all heck will break loose.
