CW, I'm trying to relate that to shear walls and engineering.  Let's see, get your engineer (as the homeowner) to engineer stronger walls and then just use half of them ....  No, that doesn't work.

Maybe, maybe not. Save yourself half of your co-pays by having 
prescriptions written for pills with twice the required dosage and 
having the pharmacy split each in half. One prescription lasts twice 
as long so you pay half the co-pay over a year. Doesn't keep you from 
falling off a ladder but you do get the right dosage, and it works 
especially well for proprietary drugs with high co-pays.
