What's that a 5 foot tall 1 inch wooden dowel holding the whole thing up? Do you not understand that the dowel is restraining your short columns? Do you not understand that a Wood dowel scaled up to the size of the WTC couldn't even support its own weight without buckling? At any rate, take that dowel out and then talk to me about weak as possible. You can't because your design would buckle before you even drop the weight, right?
