Via the Puppy Blender, a video of a “historic” Detroit hotel being demolished, as filmed by a drone.
Sound is really optional on this, it goes from annoying music to annoying drone-motor buzz, although you CAN hear the building go down.
Personal Note: When I was a kid, I thought building demolitions were awesome.
But now, almost 14 years after 9/11, I can’t watch this without a little ball of sickness forming in the pit of my stomach.
I have the same problem watching superhero movies where buildings get destroyed. Avengers was gut-wrenching for me.
Apparently I have scars.

Okay, if you want a hint (another one; yes, you already have one), it happened on the show three times, but only once in this video. That ought to be a useless enough hint.
UPDATE: The answer is in the comments.

“‘Production, refining and distribution of gasoline.’ Explains 4 types of gasoline, straight run and 3 ‘cracked’ varieties.”
And I’ll just point out that the unfathomable amount of infrastructure this nation already dedicates to pumping oil and refining gasoline is just another reason why practical electric cars are just an idiot’s pipe dream.
