Yeah, it's the tapering effect from certain angles. I've actually gotten used to those angles and they are slowly growing on me, especially as the tower nears completion.

In this case, I'd say just hit it in the hazard and take the extra stroke. But who cares what I think, I'm just a caddie.

I would definitely have to take a drop at this point. I would be clinging to the iron with some sort of Kung-fu grip that would rip my arms off if somebody tried to grab me.
As Cleveland Brown says......"My Ass"

Don't know how many of you watch Saturday night live, but for a while now they have shown 1WTC in every intro for I think a year.

Look at that Willis tower that gives a 3-D feel and One WTC just so literal!!
This is no joke man!!!
You've been one of my some-things that can't be sneezed at with an air of disrespect or whatever!! I have always valued your opinion, man, which you generate just at 15 is just incredible.

You don't know what an isometric drawing is do you?

I don't know if you're trying to be offensive or not. If not, I do know what isometric drawing is. That's the simple answer...
But if you're indeed offensive I gotta say:
There's no doubt there's a 3-D feel if you draw something on isometric paper, but what's wrong if he neatly concludes his work and wraps it in a way what we normally expect of such a drawing. I take things superficially and if need be, in depth. So, I say what I see and I see what I should say.
Why do some people have to turn over the bet and completely demean something so plain and easy? I wonder if it is because you can't breathe without such attribute that you indeed inherited with birth.
Why can't some people assume something good to be good, more so if it is just so plain and easy?

I'd like to argue with you but I can't. I tried to see your point or meaning but as far as I can tell that made no sense.

You can get diplomatic without arguing.
btw what made no sense?
If you'd want me to summarize, assume good things (or works) to be good regardless of how easy or hard they are to accomplish.

Don't worry, from that height it will burn up in the atmosphere.
