When the Chinese implode a bridge, they do not take prisoners.
Over the years, we have brought you countless films of bridges being brought down using a controlled explosion. Almost without fail, the bridges have been fully prepared, the ground upon which they fall has been made ready, and just enough explosives are deployed to ensure that the bridge deck falls effectively and safely.
Such subtlety is apparently lost in translation with our Chinese cousins. As this film of a recent bridge felling in east China’s Jiangxi Province illustrates, our Chinese counterparts prefer to deploy enough explosives to blow the snot out of the bridge and scatter its remains over a huge area.
