DarkVader: partially blown up in the 1950s (terrorist attack)
dr428: They didn't tear down the buildings at VA Tech...
Giltric: Barry Lyndon's Annuity Cheque: Massively Multiplayer Addict: Are they really demolishing it just because a gunman went on a rampage there and put some bullet holes in the walls? Or did it need to be replaced anyway?The school was built sometime in the fifties or sixties, if I remember right. I don't know the usual timetable on replacing schools, but after fifty or sixty years it was probably due for an upgrade anyways.An upgrade from brick mortar and steel to carbon fiber?I live in a 200 year old stone house.We have granite countertops, copper plumbing and central air/heat.We didn't have to tear down the building to upgrade.We even have 'lectricity and the interweb wired in every room.Are you a lobbyist for the school construction corporation?Or maybe one of those people who leases a new car every 2 years, buys a new cell phone every other month.......
octabeck: It won't be long before the Alex Jones types show up to complain about how this is evidence that the shooting was a "false flag," and that this action is clear proof that "something" is being hidden.
George Babbitt: DarkVader: partially blown up in the 1950s (terrorist attack)I for one would love to know that story.
DarkVader: You've got to remove it if you tear it down, so you get no win there. If you don't tear it down, you can leave the asbestos in place if it's not degrading.
fluffy2097: demoing the entire building is cheaper then pulling out asbestos
