How to roll a building Answered

Picture of
If you want to move a building a little over to the side and, oh, upside-down, then it looks like all you have to do is set off explosives on just one side. That's what it looks like what happened in this video in Turkey, anyway. Wish it also included what led up to this amazing building barrel roll.

I suppose one can not say that Rick did this? ;-)

Secondary: In the days of vinyl, it was amusing to find that slowed-down (45 to 33rpm) Kylie sounded exactly like Rick Astley... L

I have actually heard it - it's spooky...
Here's an example on YouTube:

(works better with a record and a finger though...)

That is an epic strong building! I'm impressed! Wonder if anyone tried to climb up inside of it while it's upside down?

Wow! They are very lucky it didn't roll right into the buildings next to it.

If you look at the start of the video you can see they deeply undercut one side of the building like they're trying to cut down a tree. Gah! I can't imagine working on that. If they had rounded off the top corners of the building it would have rolled a mile!

Yes, the amount of undercutting says "obviously wrong" to me. You'd think someone might have asked "why is it still standing?" and some other guy might have said "you know how many days we spent hacking at that - it's bloody tough stuff! It'll fall over but you're not going to end up with rubble..." L

No it wasn't meant to do that! Not much more info here but English language commentary.
