    So I been playing around with google sketchup, and a question struck me.

    Say you're building a tank that's twice as long as it is wide, is it better/stronger to butt the ends of the long panes of glass against the inner face of the shorter side panes, or the other way round?

    Assume aesthetics play no role.

    Ta!
