    So they need to take down an old flour factory in Turkey. They use explosives -- and forget, apparently, to set them to take down the walls. The whole freaking thing just rolls over like a giant ball. :eek:
    Fortunately, no one was hurt.

    Watching it again, they may not have used explosives. Looked like most of the front of the building was smashed away and it just collapsed that way. Still funny though, and amazing that the thing stayed intact like that as it rolled over.

    The luckiest Norwegian in the world was in that basement.

    Wasn't the Norwegian in the boiler room?

    Which, presumably, was in the basement.

    Incidentally, the "Norwegian" J.D.'s father refers to in that scene, is actually a kind of explosive, it wasn't intended to have a murderous bent to it.

    But it's more fun to think of it as a person to feed the psychotic vibe he put out.

    Remarkable on how no one was killed in that.

    How many Turks does it take to knock over a building?

    Gonna go out on a limb and say it's a factory where they make flour ;)

    I thought he was referring to a bomb, but you confused me. Damn you, Bubbler. Next time I see you, you'll be waving from a library window in Texas.
