24. No.

Still doesn't answer why it would be so selective in which floors to escape from. Why 40 floors below the collapse wave, for example? An immense pressure such as you claim would not blow out only one window at a time, on floors 40 storeys below the collapse wave.

I agree with Boloboffin's question (post #10) as to why would charges be placed that haphazardly, and in areas of the structure that would probably least need weakening; however, by the same token, the air pressure argument also fails. A pressurized system like that would blow out sections of windows at a time, and in a sequence that correleates with the "collapse" progression. Explosive ejections make more sense in this case.
