There's a new prog on Quest [Sky 144 in Ireland] called "Fire in the Hole" its about a Texas explosives company that blows things up for a small fortune when there is often simpler alternative.

Tonight he took down a small bridge (lets say 2  10" x 4" I-beams as main structure) with shaped charges[which he sub con'd out]. But he already had a mate with a gas axe to 'weaken' the structure!!

Last week it was imploding a 150 year old timber framed house in a country museum. He did it eventually with 100 grain det cord BUT not after they had weakened the structure with the aid of a chain saw FFS!!

My interest is that he can make his own binary charges.

No apologies from "over here." It just does not take much to entertain Us.

Give me 'Blaster Bates' any time.  But then he is an acquired but refined taste.
