I’m sure that there are any number of financial, municipal, even ethical reasons why MGM Resorts International shouldn’t be allowed to implode the 27-story Harmon Tower, before it’s hosted a single guest. Counterpoint: BOOOOOOOM. BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM.

What’s indisputable is that the building has some serious structural problems. To which the city says: hey, let’s fix it. And to which MGM says: nah, let’s blow it up real good and proper like. The concerned citizen of the world sides with the former, but the 12-year-old explosives enthusiast within desperately wants to see the video of the big shiny thing go bye-bye in a hale of (very carefully and safely planned out) dust and rubble.

The whole thing is tied up in courts at the moment. Please untie it quickly, sirs. It’s forever and a day until Transformers 4 comes out, and I need my fix. [LVJR via USA Today]
