For the non believers

Just an addition to the last post..

This is Larry Silverstein, former owner of World Trade Center Building 7.


For those of you who dont know, in the demolition industry "pull it" means "pull down the building".

Here is a little proof of that, in the form of a 50 second phone call, in case you dont believe me.
