***Gotta hand it to the Chinese... when they fuck up, they go BIG. WAAAAAY big....

:S :D



Texas always does it bigger or so they claim.... remember the fertilizer plant in 2013??

Then there is this one.... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas_City_disaster

There's also the Pepcon disaster in CA, IIRC... not a huge fireball, but a devastating boom, and you could clearly see the blast wave fan out across the landscape.

I'll see your Texas and raise you a Halifax.

"...an official database compiled in 2002 by the Nova Scotia Archives and Records Management, identified 1,950 victims. As many as 1,600 people died immediately in the blast, tsunami, and collapse of buildings. The last body, a caretaker killed at the Exhibition Grounds, was not recovered until the summer of 1919. An additional 9,000 were injured. 1,630 homes were destroyed in the explosion and fires, and another 12,000 damaged; roughly 6,000 people were left homeless and 25,000 had insufficient shelter."

About 700 tons of sodium cyanide, which becomes higly combustible upon contact with water. Apparently they were only supposed to have like 10 tons max, stored there. I think a fire started unrelated to the sodium cyanide and when firefighters arrived to fight the blaze, their water came into contact with the chemical and then KAAAABOOOOM!!!!

Pepcon was Henderson Nevada not California. It about threw me out of my bed in north Las Vegas. Thought a thunderbird had gone in over the desert by the houes

Life is Short and we never know how long we are going to have. We must live life to the fullest EVERY DAY. Everything we do should have a greater purpose.
