This story was on the news, and yes parts of the Jaguar had buckled in the heat from the reflected light of the building. bizarre.

Here's a thought, put solar panels on every other window of the building.  Cool

Lets make a huge parabolic building. Who gets the bill if they start a fire?

I've heard the solution would be to sand blast the windows but that'd make the building look dull.

The contractors paid for the damage to the car.

Apparently a hairdressers has suffered a scorched carpet, a burnt doorframe and all the hair product melted.

The hotspot was measured at over 91 degees  Shocked
