Have to wonder who paid for that though, it cost a bundle.

Back in the younger days when I was in the local Fire Co. I saw an engineer forget to open a vent lid on top of a tanker truck, it caved in but much slower than that, also totaled the truck.

Oh argh
An the farmers with their vacuum slurry tanks, quite a few of those have imploded.
and all due to atmospheric presurre
Remember the first steam engine was actually an atmospheric engine
only producing power on the contraction when the steam was cooled
