How to dispose of a house full of explosives?
It's been there for months and the residents have been "safe" so far.
Govt suit #1: "Let's see, shall we.... evacuate residents and try to cart it all out in one bunch?"
Govt suit #2: "No, no that's too risky."
GS#1: "Oh, the stuff seems stable enough to not evac residents while it's in there, let's just cart it off bit by bit and dispose of it!"
GS#2: "No, that's still too risky."
GS#3: "Hey, let's build a wall around it and set it on fire!"
GS#2: "Yeah, that'll do the trick!"
