World's Strongest Artificially Generated Tornado

The Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany has been recognized by the Guinness Book of Records for creating the "strongest artificially generated tornado in the world". The 34.4 meter high (37.2 yards) vortex has been designed to channel smoke out of the building in the event of a fire.

um... lots of air being circulated into an area where there is a fire generally turns a neato tornado thing into what's called a 'fire tornado'. All that extra oxygen for the fire certainly won't help put the fire out and all the extra heat will only ignite more fires. After that who really gives a flying sheep?
