    wow...the way it came down just seemed like they forgot ALL of the pins connecting the vertical truss to the horizontal truss. It just folded forward like a perfect parallelagram, no twisting or anything.

    And that kiddies is why we don't have a mosh pit. Did you see there was a wall attatched to the rear truss? It would have crushed the drummer! It just folded!?!?! How can anyone screw up putting a truss together that badly? Im not going to make any puns about "brining down the house" ect. As then I would be turning into my father.

    The real question is: Why were they celebrating the 4th of July (an American holiday) in Kosovo?

    It's amazing that no one was killed (I assume) in that. It looks like the truss has literally nothing holding it together.

    Yeah, it seems like they were just pushed together?
    Who in there right mind can do that?
    And I think that the drummer against the back wall would have been injured. As a wall came down on him.

    The back wall looks like it was just made of some sort of cloth or paper because you can see a bunch of stuff that poked through it.

    Yeah. Having a wall fall on you can hurt occasionally. :wall: :)
