Thanks for your idea about the 'lever to move the world'.  Without these 'big picture' concepts, our company would be nowhere.  I will get the math department to start calculating the dimensions of the lever.  So we are on the same page, I'll just review here:  You claim some Greek guy once stated that 'with a lever long enough I could move the world'.  This suggests that forces are constant whatever the scale.  You could implement a series of gears to do the work of the lever in a smaller space, but the lever would be visually more simple, and provide copious space for our logo.  We might have to come up with a new material or structure for a lever that big.  Any ideas on the fulcrum?  Off the top of my head, I was thinking we could use the moon.  What do you think?  We'll have to wait a bit for the calculations to come back in any case, so in the meantime, thanks for the suggestion, and keep smiling!
