It's funny you posted this. I have this pooper scooper made of hard plastic that I keep in the back yard. The other day, it was in the reflection of the sun off my kitchen my window in the back yard during a 105 deg day, and it melted (well, deformed it).

thats kinda funny. when i lived in vegas it was just horrible some days. just walking outside was hot enough, i can imagine adding that much of a glare would increase the heat WAY to much.lol

Vdara Death Ray

LMFAO, I worked on several of the buildings on the City Center project and I have to say it has had its share of problems, this one is just icing on the cake. I guess they don't really look too hard at the effect all that mirror might have. I have heard people liken it too burnin ants with a magnifying glass.
