At 22:43 on May 24, 2001, a large portion of the third floor of the Versailles Wedding Hall collapsed in Talpiot, Jerusalem, Israel. Twenty-three people fell to their deaths through two stories, while another 380 were injured to varying degrees

Veni Vidi Vici
I was dreamin' when I wrote this
So sue me if I go too fast
But life is just a party
And parties weren't meant to last

War is all around us
My mind says prepare to fight
So if I gotta die
I'm gonna listen to my body tonite

Everybody's got a bomb
We could all die here today
But before I'll let that happen
I'll dance my life away :bong:

They immediately thought it was a Palestinian terrorist attack, but turned out it was just a cheaply constructed building. Strange thing is the building design was known to be dangerous and they kept it open anyway. Funnier yet, the floor of this building had been sagging the days before, the owner didn't want to lose money so he hid the sag in the floor by filling it in with concrete - making the building even more unstable. 🤣

I have counted to infinity, twice.
When I was a student, Pendulum did a DJ set at one of the University student union buildings on the first floor.

This tune dropped suddenly between the DnB (drop is at 1:03)…





Everyone started jumping in time with the music and the floor started bouncing, like a 1m sway where you felt slightly weightless at the top of the oscillation. I was buzzing my tits off with some amazing pills and started to imagine this happening so went to stand near the side of the room. The building remained standing though and it was an awesome night in general.

They should consider why soldiers don’t march in unison over bridges!
