I did see someone asking what colours it would come in, so you weren't too far off

Everybody raise the hand you wear your watch on. It's already way too deep in here to save your boots.

Dangit, Rupert! I just ruined another monitor - with Dr. Pepper this time. You've got to give me some warning!

Some commute days don't go as smoothly as others.

Did anyone else find themselves saying "run, dumbass!" to the guy in the blue shirt with the phone? After the first tank went, the matter was pretty much settled as far as I was concerned.

Also: This is why I'm thinking about buying a GoPro from one of those Goodwill auctions.

No music?! What a waste of time...


The percussion was quite good, though

Michael Bay watched it and said, "meh, not bad for a first try"...

Videos like this always leave me with questions.


What caused the collision?


The initial fire started far too easily. Why?


Why did it take so long for the police to arrive?


Why is it that for over three minutes there still are no fire crews on the scene?


Why are so many dipsticks hanging out so close? Those cylinders have a huge amount of pressure in them, as is evidenced by the ones rocketing about randomly. Very dangerous.


How many cylinders were on that truck? It didn't look that big.

Two masses (vehicles) trying to occupy the same space at the same time.

Flammable materials, in the presence of an oxidizer reached their flash point.

Donut break?

It's possible they were there and holding back out of camera view. How close would you get?
QuoteOriginally posted by Racer X 69 Quote

Because they're dipsticks. Duh!

All of them, up until the crash.

In the Dallas explosion, cars and trucks were still going by on the nearby freeway as if nothing happened. Some of those cylinders were hurled a 1/4 mile away......
Yep, so many questions?

I guess everyone recalls this at the small town of West Texas?

You can't be "too far" away from one of these explosions.

Yep, Otis never misses an opportunity to give me bad reputation. I will never understand it, I do so much for him and his Giant Army. I used to think he saw me as a threat...but I now believe, he just doesn't like me much.

(all assuming what we see is real, not staged)

QuoteOriginally posted by Racer X 69 Quote
What caused the collision?
There was a silver van in front of the two cars in the 2nd lane from the left that was changing lanes just before the blue/orange/gray truck with the cylinders blocked the view. The silver van then suddenly reappears and the blue truck slams into the rear of it. I'm thinking the driver of the silver van was trying to get behind the orange truck in the rightmost lane, slammed on the brakes, and the blue truck with the cylinders was going too fast / not paying attention.

EDIT: Found a longer edit. At the beginning, there was a sign indicating an exit 250m ahead for "IVANOVSKOY". I think the silver van was trying to make the exit 'way too late. 820ft from the exit, he should have been in the right lane, NOT two lanes over.

QuoteOriginally posted by Racer X 69 Quote
The initial fire started far too easily. Why?
Dunno. The initial explosion seems to be a cylinder that rockets left into the median barrier, bounces off, then spins & makes it all the way back across to behind the truck or the shoulder.

QuoteOriginally posted by Racer X 69 Quote
Why is it that for over three minutes there still are no fire crews on the scene?
In the longer edit, they arrive in about 9 minutes. The whole thing was over in about ten. At the point where the police car arrives and backs away, an ambulance and a fire truck arrive on the opposite side of the highway at about the same time. They wisely wait for a second truck, which has a deluge cannon. When I saw that truck/camper disintegrate on I-95 just outside of Fredericksburg, it was at least ten minutes before Spotsylvania fire/rescue got there.

(signs and lettering on the police car appear to be in Russian) From what I've seen of Russian dashcam videos, what we consider insanely dangerous, they consider "Thursday". Apologies, if necessary, to our Russian members.

QuoteOriginally posted by Racer X 69 Quote

As the truck passed, I freeze-framed and counted eight or nine rows down the side and six or seven cylinders across the back - so somewhere between 48 and 63 cylinders? (assuming each row was full). Someone on YouTube counted at least 36 explosions.
