There are few things finer than watching a building implode—even if it almost kills you.

That seems to be the feeling shared by a couple who stood among the small crowd of observers during a demolition in the Czech Republic, anyway. As an old clothing factory collapses, a giant hunk of concrete comes bouncing past the non-existent safety perimeter and nearly takes their heads off when it hurtles by. Not that anyone’s too impressed.

Embedding is disabled, but here’s another angle, along with a photo that suggests at least one bystander got nicked by the errant, almost-deadly projectile. Still beats watching reruns!
