You're right ... I meant geodesic domes.


Terribly inefficient in the real world, where joints leak and products
don't come in triangles. So unless your reason for being interested in
them is "pure cussedness" realize that a normal-shaped plastic film
covered greenhouse will cover ground far more reliably and cheaper, in
this world, anyway.

As for the less agricultural uses, the writers of the dome home book
have publicly renounced the darn things, but evidently a whole new
generation of people that don't want to learn from the mistakes of 45
years ago is raring to build the leaky, noisy, unpleasant things again.
