This isn’t news, as it happened two years ago, but it’s just mind blowing. This almost finished 13 story high building in Shanghai collapsed like a domino piece, and if others were built closer to it, the domino effect would be complete. This gives kind of a whole new meaning to the whole ‘made in China’ thing, doesn’t it ?

After seeing this, one can only imagine what would China do if faced with a threat like the one the Japanese faced. Thankfully, they’re not, but I really hope this was an isolated case and not a general thing plus some bad luck… because that would be really bad.
