I love a controlled demolition. I find the idea of blowing up a building FASCINATING. But sometimes, your explosives are no match for good old fashioned American steel.
The Silverdome in Detroit was supposed to be demolished over the weekend, but when the crew flipped the switch...nothing happened. Don't get me wrong; the explosion happened, but the building stayed up.
I guess they don't make em like they used to!
