If only that had been an option for an Australian demolition crew, trying to bring down a 50-year-old silo.
According to a news report, the Brisbane structure was scheduled for demolition on Sunday.
Packed with over 200 pounds of explosives, the building was expected to go down without a fight. Instead of toppling, the former malt silo merely leaned.
A crowd watched in delight as the building remain upright.
An old-fashioned jackhammer finally did the job that improved technology could not achieve.
What little audio there is, the majority of it is a high-pitched humming sound.
