Well, it seems like this thread actually needs to happen.
So you have the Tianjin explosion on 8/13
Then the Texas chemical plant explosion on 8/15
Then on 8/22, Shangdong China chemical plant explosion
And alas, today 8/23, US Army Ammo storage in Japan blows up
What would Lumie say about all this?

Calling me a Cunt is a lot like calling Hitler a Nazi, it's not exactly received as the insult you were intending.

that asplosion in china last week is still the macdaddy of them all. shit just kept expanding. according to this video it was probably equivalent to 300 tons of TNT
Lumie knows what's up
Sup, Monica. Don't forget to register at re rerolled
Old explosion from 1988
Well, if we're doing this, but this one is a bit more personal and thus less fun.
Is there anyway that the cable companies can blame it on streaming media?
little ahmed mess up his clock this time?
Another china plant explosion few days ago. Not as severe, but filmed right next to it.
gdamn asians, anyone else if a building exploded right under them they would run for cover, probably leaving a poo trail behind them. this guy, keeps filming.
The heat from that explosion that close must be pretty extraordinary. And yes I would have shit my pants. lol
Typical Monday for the chinaman
Seems like fukushima had quite a few iirc
LPG is always stored in a spherical tank.
DO YOU HAVE ANY SOURCES TO BACK YOU UP?
Oh I'm not doubting you, I've just never seen them anywhere else and I know some of our N2, O2 and AR tanks have been around for 30-50 years.
I do direct your attention to the Ascend plant in Pensacola, FL. It was built during WW2 and was used to support the war. It is like stepping back in time when you get there, all the 1950 Schwinn bicycles are still used to get around on and no cars are allowed on the property (unless essential, you can't even smoke within 1 mile of the plant and if you're caught you will be fired). All of the other plants have blown up except for that one and it's the size of a small town. They have several of those old ass round tanks and it scares the shit out of me.
I only made that comment because I'd only seen them at Ascend and the ones in Portal 2, haha.
The reason it still looks old at chemical plants and refineries they replace "in kind" when it's time to replace it. I have built lots of stuff that we get the drawings for that still have rivets which I believe they stopped using in the 40's. But it had been replaced a half dozen times or more from the same drawings.
Yeah most plants use bicycles or those 3 wheel bikes with a cart on the back. Looks like old ladies going to get groceries lol.
But yeah most gas stuff is stored in the hemispherical tanks.
Funny about the no smoking thing. At the 2nd largest refinery in the country they put up giant tents during turn arounds for smokers only and outside every operator station they have 2-3 BBQ pits for guys to cook while working. You can't go 100 feet without running into a smoker or someones BBQ pit.
