A recent post about this on facebook from some stupid lady "Omg that seriously just scared me. That poor little girl. Why is her father bringing the children around for his little adventure. Stupid white hicks! His daughter will probably suffer from permeant damage. I'm seriously terrified by this video."

Some people are so ignorant

I actually didn't think of that. I can honestly say I'd do the same thing. I may be more hesitant to do so with my kids in the back though. If anything because I know I'd get my ear yelled off by my wife. .

Shame this idiot didn't allow comments to be posted, he might actually learn something.

That shit ignites with water or something too i guess? anhydrous ammonia. so the fact that fire crews were probably spraying buildings upstream for prevention tells me they may have caused it? not that its really their fault, but ya know what i mean.

I love the people that look at the city from a satellite and say what the hell is a plant like that doing so close to a sub division.
What do you seriously think was there first?
It is the same with many large factories located in the heart of a city. The reason most of those homes are their is due to the workers living in/around that sub division.

Terrorist attack really?
It is bad enough that is the medias go to when something happens.


Ever see a windmill explode? I guarantee you there will be sub divisions next to windmill farms in the near future.

I just spent the last 3 minutes youtubing windmill explosions. My life is complete, and I will die disappointed. Fertilizer plant explosions are a much much more explosive sight.

NPR had a story of a guy who crossed the Boston Marathon just minutes ahead of the explosions then went home to the town in Texas and was there when the explosion took place. Crazy.
