That's (not very well executed) Flemish bond.

What did I win?

Curious - what is the point of this pattern? Is it anything beyond aesthetic? I'm assuming the short units are split or rotated standard bricks?

The point? To build walls with the thickness of a full stretcher.

it appears a little blog promotion could be quite educational here.  Although i so not write about Flemish And English bond  the links in reference have info on it

That's very informative, thanks!

This is in part why we all speak Flemish now.

Thanks for the info all. While we are at it does anyone have a favorite bond pattern or an interesting custom pattern?

Here is a pic of some patterns. I usually don't care for brick to much, it kind of looks utilitarian to me but some nice crisp brick or block work is nice though.

Cool article Ms./Mr. fictional\-/Christopher

About that Flemish bond...

I can't "make out" the angle.

I believe the one lying down is at a max angle of 5 °relative to the ground surface, the one sitting on top has their legs bent at a neat 45 ° with the lower legs at a 65 ° angle with the floor, all the while being perpendicular to both floor and the one lying down. Hope that helps :)
