Dew-A-Mid update

I've been hard at work on my Mountain Dew pyramid. Here're some pictures.

I finished the 9x9 base.



Isn't it beautiful? Want a closer look?



This is what you would see if the base were floating in the ocean and you were trying to land a plane on it. Next is the overhead shot. Sexy and disturbing.



After finally completing the base I grew wary of all the work with seemingly no gratification. So I decided to start building the top half. There are fewer cans in the entire top half than the base, itself, contains but it is much more interesting to see it stacked. See for yourself...



Oh, man! The chicks are going to want me sooo bad when this is finished!

Now that I've gotten this far, I seem to be running out of deskspace in my cubicle. I've put in a request for a bigger office. In the mean time, I've been setting the finished layers on top of the overhead compartments. You can see the top half from nearly everywhere in my wing of the building. If I need people to find my cubicle I just say "look for the tower of Mountain Dew cans."

I also had an idea tonight. Instead of just stopping at a pyramid, I could build an entire Mountain Dew Diamond. It would look similar to the illustration below...only bigger...and each row of H's would actually be that number of Mountain Dew cans. Squared.

I think it would be righteous to have a 3D Mountain Dew diamond that is 17 cans tall and 9 cans wide. I'll have to buy more superglue, though.
