    LOL. I read that in this mornings' paper. I think those demolition fellows were having some fun. How often do they get a chance to make something go BOOM ! Hell if I was one of them, I know that I would load as much as I could get away with :196::09:

    Extra boom, because they were blowing up commercial-grade fireworks... lol
     
  4. Hi Ghost Raven, you gotta live up here to understand that kind of silly sh**.
    The demolition teams live for those moments, we are just coming out of a long winter and it was a great way to bring in summer with a bang :)
     
  5. The reporter who covered that story had way too much fun writing it up.:)

    This thread is worthless without video!

    Please all, email the reporter and ask for pics or video!

    I love a big boom! I just wish I could be the one making it! Too much fun, and too far away to get to see it.
     
  11. Good God, a remote blasting cap would have worked just as well. 30lbs of C4 is a lot much... I wonder whose dime the C4 was on?

    Don't get me wrong... a big blast is nice but nowhere necessary here.

    Anyone know the shelf life of C-4? Just curious. TNT does deteriorate over time and leaches out nitro-glycerin so ya gotta be careful handling it. I just wonder if C-4 becomes unstable, say after 35 years, in your basement? No reason. Just curious.
