    TSB have been running a TV ad in which a house is shown being built with a chimney at the top of each gable-end, and a window in the middle of each gable-end. How is this possible?

    most old chimneys weren't build vertical, they tended to have a bend in them - traditionally to stop witches flying down them ;) Simply in some cases the fireplaces weren't central to the house, so they just sloped them up to the ridge like below

    Santa is still there, astride that apex, and regretting this delivery.
