Whitesburg Bridge Demolition

VIDEO:mp4:10mb:35s

This is another rerun reproduced in high definition, at least when compared to internet video 10 years ago. I was using a digital video camera that was then state of the art, never-the-less technically challenged, compared to digital video cameras today. It was rare that I actually captured the video using the memory greedy 640w x 30fps format. Because I knew the length of the video was going to be relative short even in raw format, I was able to spend the available memory in a very short time. The original raw footage was only 1 minute and 3 seconds.

The final production presented here is only 35 seconds, and while produced at 640w x 30fps, it has been fitted using the embedded player for the page at 480w x 320h. You can download it to your desktop player and see it at 640w if you like.

When the video begins, you will immediately notice the one minute warning siren prior to the detonation of the blast. However, I did cut about 45 seconds between the warning siren and the actual detonation of the explosive charges. The splice is hard to notice because there simply wasn’t any camera movement, on a tripod, and there wasn’t anything going on in the scene otherwise. There is a slight shift in the light pitch as there must have been some cloud variation. You’ll also notice the bright light from the explosives and the delayed echo. They are, however, perfectly in phase. The fact that light just travels faster than sound, is just more evident in this type of scene.

Enjoy the Whitesburg Bridge demolition video!

    NRA President David Keene Puts The 2nd Amendment On Slippery Slope

    In the wake of Sandy Hook, David Keene, President of the NRA, made an appearance on CBS’s Face the Nation this morning. During the interview Bob Schieffer miopically declared that it has been shown in cultures where there are no guns, there is less gun violence. What Bob, and even Mr. Keene, failed to point […]

    Walking Tall With Donald J Trump, “General” Jeff Sessions, Marijuana Monopoly And An Outlaw Named El Chapo

    Donald J Trump doesn’t speak softly, but he sure as hell carries a big stick. If he can keep his own big toes out of the way, like newly affirmed Attorney General Jeff Sessions, it’s just barely possible that he can negatively impact crime, enhance medical care for all – and make America greater than ever before.

    Huntsville Schools Superintendent, Great White Hope Casey Wardynski, Propagating Socialism

    Casey Wardynski, once considered to be the great white hope sent to restore the order and save civilization from denigrating socialist policy, is now purporting a system of socialist indoctrination to overcome the shortcomings of good white-folk families and the incompetance of educators who themselves lack self-discipline.

    The Firing Of James Comey – Much Ado, But Over What?

    All I know so far is that I have been barraged with fake news and that I apparently voted, or failed to vote, based on the mentality of a third grader waiting for Santa Clause to come down the chimney.

    Barnum And Baily Caves To PETA Pressure To Send Elephants Packing

    It seems to me that a lot of people love elephants, and by extension all other wild and exotic animals, many near extinction, because there is a circus and because there are zoos where we can see them and they become real. The conservation and protection of all those magnificent animals depends on public awareness and concern for them. Animals we never see, are animals we never worry about. I can’t answer all the questions about animal treatment and happiness, but it seems to me that PETA is doing more harm than good. And besides, what’s a circus without elephants? Maybe a prelude to a world without elephants?
