 >> Anonymous Mon Jun 10 15:09:02 2024 No.2810894 They say that wood performs better in compression than in tension, and I believe that's true. If we assume that the joint between beam and post is unbreakable, and that the wooden beam is uniform and unbreakable *except* for those two points, then the point that's in tension (A) will break first. "First", but just barely. The failure of A will almost immediately lead to the failure of B.But I'm a B-fag when it really comes down to it.>muh hula hoopsPlease.
