building implosion in christchurch

At 8am Sunday (tomorrow NZ time) instead of bells tolling for church services we will have the interesting sounds of an earthquake damaged building being imploded.  On the TV news tonight a chap involved described it as a serious business and not a spectator sport.  I think he might be half-right.  I have met a few people who demolish buildings and as much as they try to be professional about it they quietly love it – and to use explosives as well – well, that is just a dream.  I can only imagine that that chap will have a little more interest in what happens in the morning than ‘professional distance!’  I will provide a link to the video when it appears afterwards!
