“Yes, But Isn’t the Obvious Wonderful?!?”

Headline and lead-in from the msn.com home page as of this morning:

10 of the weirdest-

One owner lives in a home modeled after Tolkien hobbit
houses & another used geometry to design her abode…

Yes, I know it’s nit-picking. But I am trying (and failing, in a major way) to conceive of a house whose design and construction did not rely on geometry. :)
