Would you like to see a hotel explode?*

* well they call it imploding but you know what I mean.

Saw this yesterday...and today, having been 502'd till I am crimson, I thought I would post this for our collective amusement. Worth watching in full...first for the fireworks and then for the explosion that's really an implosion.

Oh and here is the moment itself in close-up. Like the little countdown (do not be put off by Elvis. He makes way for a giant implosion...ahem...)

Did you ever stay at the Frontier? More importantly, did you leave anything in the room....?

    Curious how we all love the controlled explosion. A voice over my shoulder said "Is that Iraq?" - now pondering controlled versus other explosions.

    ** mind you I'd be quite happy to implode or explode Room 502 **

    I'd love to see it, but Nothing shows up on the post above that brings an explosion to the screen.

    Oh well, never mind; I expect it would claim it was 502 anyway.
