Nice vid. Changing the subject just a bit ... most folks don't realize that
while it usually is faster to "implode" a building rather than use
conventional methods of destruction .. it isn't all *that* much faster. We
see the 5 second implosion but we forget the weeks, and weeks (sometimes
months) of preparation that had to be done before they were ready to press
the "destruct" button.
