    Were you with Rolling Stones or Aerosmith? Lucky for us those glazed glasses didn't break during your band performance..

    Update -

    I just heard that the fire alarm was going for 23 minutes before the numskulls found it :eek: and the contractor has stated that - None - of his employees were on the site at the time of the fire :confused:

    OHOO o_O

    You don't need workers on site to accidentally start a fire. (In fact, if workers were on site someone might have located the fire or even contained it before it became a conflagration.)

    Any one of these, in conjunction with the presence of fuel like timber and/or sawdust:
    • Electrical shorts
    • Static discharges
    • Leak of flammable gases
    • Residual heat from mechanized tools
    Someone who works in construction could add a lot more to this list.

    Those are very good points that you make but I'm saying 51 to 49 if you know what I am saying and I'll let you decide which way it swings :D

    I used to work in construction and can add one - someone started the fire deliberately :eek:

    Sorry if I seem to pessimistic but I was a Detective in a former life :cool:

    There is nothing worth learning from Daesh ("ISIS"/"ISIL"/so-called "Islamic State").
    Even compared against other totalitarian theocratic states, they were abysmal failures on every level.

    And Brunei's massive hypocrisy has been well taught in every despot's cradle.

    I have liked your comment but was thinking that perhaps their use of social media is somewhat unique for gaining new followers ,at least when they first started.
