Yes and no; the reaction for a lot of people who leave the Mormon church is the same--antagonism and anger; but, it's interesting to see where people go from there, and a few of the people who post there are worth reading.

But, their audience is, as their name suggests, Ex-Mormons, so YMMV.

Fun, my threads keep going off-topic, and it is not my fault!

This came out yesterday and I am not that interested in it for some reason, but it has several other YouTube channels that I like, just not Cody's Lab.

Strangely, it is some sort of a fundraiser. For the kids? It looks like some kind of scholarship.

For his kids?

Strangely, the top comments are various people saying they will miss him. Cody said Grant retired. I do not have any idea when the last time I saw him was, but Callie had him help her, which was a strange reversal. It seemed like he left the show before she came along.

It appears to be a Monolithic [style], gunnite sprayed over an inflated form.

Unfortunately, it doesn't have an oculus, else it wouldn't be dark inside in mid-day.

That would sound good for ventilation. Yes, there is a giant hole in the side, but smoke rises.

Or does it...

Huh: Why does smoke sink at night and rise during the day?

Wow, this is so easy it is disappointing!

I still want to see them do this on a King of Random scale!

Sounds like a lot of work. I put the one-hitter on the desk by my laptop keyboard and the smoke flows out of the bowl through the carburetor hole, and pools on the desktop.

You're right about ventilation, but it's also important for lighting. The Pantheon has an oculus that is proportioned similar to the eye and it's iris. Beyond that, if it's too big UV will bleach out your living room furniture.

The rest of ventilation is openings around the periphery and some sort of ventilator control — Fuller's rotating cone or Indian teepee smoke flaps.

edit:
Since I posted I found this:

They discuss the quality of light and the psychological effect of the hemispherical space. And there's a panelized pod structure as well.
