Sounds like a loaded question...
David Topete, SE

I don't know if it's loaded or not, but the situation -- 30+ years ago, in a building that's since been demolished -- there were large roof overhangs with double cantilevered glu-lams.  I thought I was very conservative in my design, but a couple of decades later the overhangs had sagged enough that they had to add ugly downspouts to drain them.  :( 

Live and learn.
