Fourth Floor, A Dump Truck, A Video Camera, and an Obvious Conclusion

"It's just like, it wants out. We're getting it out of here." It's weird that this logic doesn't get you arrested.

It wasn't just a one drunken night, prank - it took several days over a few months and a lot of beer to get the dump truck out of the abandoned factory and onto the ground. According the article, "Detroit has 80,000 abandoned lots and buildings," and the police are busy enough with the ones that aren't abandoned, so it's kind of a tourist wasteland.

Fortunately, a videographer was passing by. It's actually decent quality video.

So what do you do with all of these abandoned buildings? Most cities eventually bulldoze blighted properties, but 80,000 is a big number.
