I can't stop watching these infrastructure demolition videos. Let's just infinite-loop them, shall we?
I've been on a bit of a bridge demolition kick since we saw Texas' biggest bridge demolition yesterday. It's what's playing backwards up top there.
Maybe I just love explosions more than the average joe. I used to spend my free time in middle school digging up archival footage of all of the US' above-ground atomic tests. Then I found our underwater explosions. I still can remember what Operation Swordfish looks like, and Operation Teapot, too. There wasn't any YouTube for me to fall back on, either, so I had to get deep into some Wikipedia shit.
You can't help but feel a little uneasy about watching nuclear explosions, though, and these demolitions are the conscience-safe explosion hit that I've been fiending. I can't be the only one, can I?
You can find all of these videos in our top ten demolitions video list right here.
