  1. Here is a link to a Secret Report to the BC Government requesting a 25 million BTU gas line to the center of the floor:

    http://vancouver.24hrs.ca/News/local/2010/01/03/DAEP.pdf

    Highlights:

    A10) Cauldron Gas Pipeline and Supply (Managed and Contractred by PAVCO)

    a) "Supply Pipeline and Supply

    Supply and install a new 25 million BTU 2 psi gas pipeline including meter upgrade, pipework to center of FOP as required

    B) Cauldron Permits and Approvals

    Help acquire all permits, licenses, documentation, approvals and certification as required for the installation."

    Too bad Mr. X is banned from Skyscraperpage. He could reveal this to the world.

    25 million BTUs of gas entering BC Place. That's a lot of fuel to go wrong.

    The Flame is burning in the dome. It's official. Done deal. Get ready for hell on earth

  2. Wrong direction Mr. X. The salt building and the Cauldron tower are on the other side of the Cambie bridge which is flater. The shot there is of the Hospital which is around the 1000 block of Broadway. Yes there's a hill there, climbed it many times. The Salt building and Cauldron tower are way to the east closer to Science World and that area is in the flats.

    Right behind that Salt building is City TV on West 2nd. That area is in the flats.

    I will take pics tommorow

  3. Yes it is.

    First this Mr. X dude attacked me when I propositioned that the Shangri La tower had 62 floors. Him and JLousa and a few others ganged up on me and tried to convince me it was 61 floors.

    In the end, I was right. It's 62 floors.

    Then Mr. X jumped on my back about the Olympic Flame burning a hole through the teflon dome of BC Place.

    What goes around comes around. Mr. X had this coming for a while now.

    And I still am owed a nice juicy steak from Mr. JLousa for winning the Roof bet. No steak yet

  4. It doesn't have to be a catastrophic explosion. The heat from the flame will cause the roof to expand, then tear and a small air leak will cause the roof to deflate.

    Stadium staff will turn on more fans to keep the pressure equilibrium and keep the roof from deflating.

    The tear will get bigger.

    More fans get turned on, now blowing full blast.

    Then the tear rips wide open

  5. The Olympic Flame inside BC Place will be fueled by Natural Gas which I believe burns at 2000 degrees. A natural gas pipeline has been dug in the East End Zone under Sec 227:

    B.C. Place gets overhaul

    The B.C. Lions won't play another home game in B.C. Place Stadium until it reopens in 2011 after a half-billion-dollar overhaul.

    The dome will be Vancouver's Olympic stadium for opening, closing and nightly medals ceremonies. From Feb. 12-28, the Olympic flame will burn in a top-secret cauldron beneath the air-supported, fabric roof, which was inflated on Nov. 14, 1982.

    In May, crews dug and covered a 20-foot shaft in the centre of the stadium's floor. Sources said it was for a hydraulic lift and cauldron. A fuel pipe to feed the flame for 17 days was recently installed in the east end zone by section 227.
