Lightbulb Ronan Point

Ronan Point was a 22-storey tower block in Newham, East London, which partly collapsed on 16 May 1968 when a gas explosion demolished a load-bearing wall, causing the collapse of one entire corner of the building. Four people were killed in the incident, and 17 were injured..The building had just opened, and three of the 4 flats immediately above Hodge's were unoccupied..4 of the 260 residents were killed immediately and seventeen were injured, including a young mother who was stranded on a narrow ledge when the rest of her living room disappeared.. Hodge survived, despite being blown across the room by the explosion—as did her Gas Stove, which she took to her new address...

And yes, I'm very sure that I am a Mason... didn't mean that you should actually speak..OK. I work for the CIA, and the Director asked me at the last minute to come with him to Russia with him to do a nuclear arms inspection...
