I can promise you won’t ever use that much stuff.

But I could actually find it.


From: Showtalk 


Yes you can organize and catalog it.

Or if I can't finish it this lifetime, then others can actually benefit from it rather than just bulldoze everything off into a landfill.

So your equating corruption in modifying methane detection on underground mining equipment for extra profits with Texas's failure to tax the oil industry enough to fill the potholes that their trucks cause in the roads?

No but nearly every serious accident turns out to have been from cutting corners somewhere or other, and eventually it caught up to them.

I never did find out what caused the 18 wheeler fire. It could have been something like an axle bearing or even a transmission / drive shaft problem where the friction mile after mile caused lubricants to ignite, then that just spread to the fuel tanks. That stretch of road was actually smooth, and probably not the cause of the fire.

But it was spectacular and noisy.

Sometimes stuff happens.

Big accidents are usually both spectacular and noisy.

Like the ammonium perchlorate explosion out in the desert when solid rocket fuel accumulated while space shuttles were grounded after Challenger in 1986.

Or the gas plant explosion around Goldsmith about 30 years or so ago.

Then there was this explosion in November 1944 in the middle of a British countryside, that blew a crater out 400 feet deep and a half mile across. There were millions of bombs stored there on their way to the bases that launched the nightly raids on Nazi held facilities in Europe. One afternoon, something happened. No one really knows for sure, according to declassified reports, as any eyewitnesses instantly turned to "strawberry jam" and any physical evidence was launched tens of kilometers across the English farms and hedgerows at about 27x the speed of sound, and broken up into itty bitty pieces.

It was the biggest pre-nuclear age explosion, ever. It even dwarfed the Beruit harbor explosion, and a few other large non-nuclear accidents.

That is huge. Maybe that is where mysterious crop circles come from in fields

Too small of a scale, no cratering of the earth. Some of the more convincing ones are actually done by people using lumber and rope.
