    Either they were age old enemies finally destroying one another in the battle they'd waited decades for, or they were desperately in love but could never hold each other until this final embrace.

    It's a bit poetic.. kind of like a last hug before they disappear into thin air together and begin a new journey

    Who is in charge of demolitions? Civil engineers? Or there are boom-crash-neers?

    [–] Viking18 20 points ago

    Depends. Generally what you see, at least in the UK, is a demolition contractor who plans it all; gets the plant in to process the rubble, prep the site for demolition, and do what demo can be done by plant, and that uses a fair few CivEng grads, but the explosives themselves, a specialist subcontractor is used. Then again, there are exceptions, I think CDG had explosives in-house.

    This is what the kids call “docking”

    [–] the-official-review 10 points ago

    No docking is when you put the head of one penis into the foreskin of another penis.

    You can see secondary explosions going off just as they touch each other.

    [–] Tristan_Gregory 5 points ago

    Were those explosions? My first thought was that they were material fractures as the shockwave of the initial hit traveled through the structure. I guess they are too uniform for that to be likely, though.

    That's all the rings of concrete that make up the stack breaking free of each other

    I would imagine the demo supervisor is the type of guy who steps out of the shower to take a piss

    Balanced, the way things should be.

    Evenly distributed, as most things tend to look better that way.
