Something I’ve Always Wanted to Do

I call it “Jenga for Real.” You can probably see where this is going…

I’d like to find an old, 20+ story building that’s already been scheduled for demolition. It should ideally be in a ghost town or similar area where there isn’t much stuff surrounding it that could be destroyed. The idea would be to rig up demolition explosives on each floor, but each third of each floor would be on completely different circuits. One could then detonate a third of each floor and see how long the building continues to stand. The person who detonates the most segments without the building collapsing, wins.
