Thank you, JA and MD²; I wish I could take credit for my current avatar, but the truth is that I stole it from bad boy Sean:

Anyway, as to this dome and the one in Louisiana, I guess my point was that they really stand up, and unusually in this case, because I'm a terrible photographer, the top photo here shows it. (I should've taken an axe to that tree on the right, though.)
