FRIDAY FUNNY: Extreme Demolitions

One of my older cousins is a demolition expert. He makes a living blowing up buildings. As a kid, I never quite understood the significance of this job, even though my dad was a civil engineer early in his career.

This sequence may have few repetitions and embellishments, but it is a tribute to demolitions done well (unlike the Demolition Fail I posted here back in January). Some of these explosions/implosions are spectacular illustrations of how facility managers feel when frustrated by their buildings. (Great music by The Prodigy too!)

(The one at the 30 second mark is quite beautiful, in my opinion!)
