    Yeah this one has been making the rounds. I'm pretty sure I visibly flinched the first time I saw it!!!

    I thought up several alternative strategies (ranging from bad idea to probably ok); the most fun would be to sit back and take out the remaining blocks with a 30-06... there might be some small amount of collateral damage from that strategy though

    On a related note: If you haven't seen any of the Fred Dibnah documentary, its pretty interesting.
    - 1/6 - the rest you can find on the youtube.
    He shows how to take down slightly larger brick and concrete structures neat and clean as you please.

    I agree with Ryan on the flinching part. The sledgehammer guy doesn't seem to be the sharpest plane in the till.

    And as for the second video, that's a job there's no way I could do.

    I'm glad I don't have to claim him as a blood relative!

    Those first two are definitely from the shallow end of the gene pool and lucky to be alive!
