I`m surprised they didn`t celebrate like this on 9/11. After all, it was Bush who planned the whole thing anyway.

"Buildings don`t get destroyed by implosion. That was controlled demolition. They destroy certain keyparts of the foundation (with EXplosives) to make the building fall straith downward instead of sideways."
I think you`re confusing mechanical implosion with implosion in terms of buildings.
Wiki it

That`s one of the old classics though, The Frontier. It seems all the old classic Vegas hotels you USED to see in old shots of the strip/Fremont are going or gone, The Sands, Stardust, The Frontier, what`s next, Glitter Gulch?

It would be cool if they would start knocking down buildings like this, opposed to the boring wrecking ball cranes.

What`s that, this demolition is going to be too cheap? Just throw a few hundred thousand dollars` worth of fireworks in! Hooray, hundreds of people are out of a job!

"Wow, they really went out with a BANG" is what I would`ve said if I were really insensitive.

Which I`m not.

Wow, I`ve seen a fair amount of these building implosions, but never one as cool as that. Leave it to Vegas to make a show out of it.
