My apologies if this has been previously posted, but I did search the forum under likely topics.

This youtube video had a HUGE-CHUNK of a mountain-top falling away.

Hey Fritz - I couldn't click on it, so I made it a little easier - impressive rock fall.





EDIT:

The syntax looks like this {youtube=y33STLSFjkE} but replace the {} with []
