Maybe they should have just set it on fire like WTC 7… would have been cheaper in the long run.

    Looks like the work of Al-Quaida!

    Just like Obama’s presidency.

    “Lets go with this cheapest bid.” What could go wrong?

    #2 What, Obama has fallen over to his right?

    #3 Should we go for the highest bid instead? Theres an attributed quote about an American astronaut going into space.

    Reporters Question: “How does it feel to go into space?”

    Astronaut’s Answer: “I realised that I was sitting on a rocket with six thousand components, every one built by the low bidder”

    Time to call in GW Bush’s brother, he’d be able to get the job done.

  6. Raff says:

    Oh! We should have cut the supports on each floor and not just the base? Whoops!

    Perhaps they left their tin-foil hat at home that day. Clearly you still have yours.

    I feel for the poor schmuck who’s gotta go back in there and plant some more explosives.

  9. ECA says:

    looks as if someone BUILT THEM VERY WELLLLLL!!!

  10. Honeycomb Sponge says:

    You only had to blow the bl**** doors off.

  11. Mr. Fusion says:

    Just like the Republicans and taxes, they got cheap with the quantity of explosives and ended up with a bigger mess than before.

  12. Faxon says:

    I don’t see any explosions from inside the upper levels. Probably lost an ignition wire connection somewhere very important. I have seen a couple of these demolitions in person, and they are great fun. Typically, the detonations fire in a specific sequence to pancake the top floors begging at the top. And, boys, do we have to make EVERY FUCKING thing political????

  13. Steve S says:

    Man, I hope they don’t execute the engineer who was responsible for this snafu.

  14. clancys_daddy says:

    Not exceptionally well built. Just a showing of typical Chinese poor engineering as they were unable to blow up a Chinese building. If they had just left it alone it would have fallen on its own given the past history of Chinese construction.

  15. Demo says:

    I agree, they should have just poured in some kerosene on the floor about 3/4 of the way to the top, let it burn, and it would have fallen perfectly straight down! people do believe that, right?

  16. deowll says:

    Good foundations and not enough HE.

    You taken out the ground level supports and everything else pancakes on top of it.

    Looks like they got part of one side. I hope they had good insurance.

    This being China I wonder if the guy in charge got off with being fired.

  17. Rick Cain says:

    And that country is going to be building the Boeing Dreamliner.

    Care to fly Boeing?

  18. Raj says:

    They must have used Made In China explosives.
