For a fortunate few boys, the odd twists and turns of fate led them not to state and federal prison and an early grave, but rather to fame, fortune, and acclaim as world-class demolition experts.
I came across implosionworld.com the other night, and was fascinated by this whole other world that exists in parallel to my everyday life, a world where people are paid to destroy rather than create.
An especially nice touch on the site is the attribution of each demolition to the blaster, just as an artist would be known for her or his work. These people are artists.
Most interesting, both intellectually and artistically. I would bet specializing in demolition work in the military is the fast track to a very lucrative, enjoyable job in civilian life. Boom!
