Spiderman is going to climb Burj Khalifa sometime in the next few months. There haven't been any updates on the story. Perhaps he became frightened and wants to lay low for a while.

Maybe he read my post that I would taze the [email protected] if he was outside my bedroom window.

Well I am no photographer, but I am jealous of this one too.

Thank you for sharing a sample, nicely taken!

Wait, I'm confused. Is this a joke, or is it an actual aired show?

Some really good stuff, you can download skyscrapers (43 of them if I count right) in vector format. So you can make you own posters, wallpapers etc!

Towers can collapse in a different ways and that depends on what causes the collapse, how and where exactly its damaged etc. High skyscrapers are demolished and meant to free fall vertically and not to damage anything around, or at least as little as possible. Its actually a damn hard job to do it and involves thousands of explosives. It is extremely unlikely that it would collapse vertically without any help from some engineers.
