Popular mechanics detonated for ‘overthrow of a statue’ guide

“Popular Mechanics” magazine went on fire after publishing a detailed guide about the overthrowing monuments.

“Put that sucker down without hurting anyone” Article published on Monday it encourages readers and gives the best advice on “toppling a statue using science”.

Author James Stout said his article was inspired by worldwide attacks on “problematic monuments” linked to “racism heritage” among the ongoing protests.

“If you find yourself near a statue that you decide you don’t like anymore, we asked scientists for the best, safest ways to bring it to the ground without harming anyone – except for the dead racist, of course. It’s already a century, ”says the article.

Mechanical engineer Scott Holland later – with about 70 strong friends – most protesters suggested how the statue could be pulled down with 4×4 rescue straps “around the head or neck”.

Holland also suggests using a butane or propane torch to heat the statue, saying, “You’ll be there for 15 to 20 minutes, but it’s much easier.”

If it fails, there is also a “chemical approach” – Stout, who is a detailed guide to “melting the damn thing” and using termite, says it is a “fun bonus” to produce a high-pitched squeak.
