AteMyBrain: Why didn't they just burn some jet fuel inside it for a couple of hours? Sumbiatch would have come down straight as an arrow.


"Jet fuel" contains that crap they spray out in chem trails, if they used it uncontained at this populated event it most likely would have killed more people, with cancer on the rise for the rest of the spectators. Come on man, is this amateur hour?

The 30-second advertisement at the beginning sorta takes all the steam out of the rickroll.

There are ads on Youtube? You must have malware or something wrong with your browser ( like a missing plugin...)

LaughingRadish: FriarReb98: astouffer: namatad: NEWS FLASH: standing too close to exploding things is dangerous
details at 11

It said they were standing in the so called designated safe area. Someone is going to own part of that demolition company now.

Highly likely.  From the aerial images of the area, the demolition site looks to be roughly 300 yards from the Lowe's parking lot, while the other viewpoint is just over a quarter mile.   While I'm sure they had reason to believe it was far enough, less than a quarter mile for something rusty and metallic being blown up seems like not such a good idea.  Either that, or there's also the fact that it looks like there was literally nothing left to contain the blast.

\granted, that's only me and my "watched too many demolition shows" mind saying this, so who knows what's right

See http://goo.gl/maps/s9L2o.  The parking lot is a considerable distance from the power plant building.  The chunk of metal had to travel northeast across six lanes of traffic, over a canal, to even get to the lot.  Does anyone know where in the lot the spectator was standing?



In the wrong place.

The upside to getting old is that you stop doing stupid shiat like that.


Actually stayed up all night to see an early morning building demo once. Pretty cool. It probably helped that I was on acid, too.

Prey4reign: WhyteRaven74: Michael Bay seen quietly running away

This is impossible.  Michael Bay is incapable of doing anything quietly.


Unless he was running in slow motion while leaping over a screaming woman.
