This story is hard for be to digest.

I bet it caused thousands of dollars in improvements.

I was drinking tequila once and spilled hydrochloric acid all over the place. That took a crew to clean up too.

No problem. Send in a car full of sodium hydroxide. The resulting crash will be a refreshing tidal wave of salt water.

It's all about creative solutions, people!

Dude, they just spilled a bunch of Acid, dude. Acid. And it was liquid, dude.

Thank God it wasn't acetyl salicylic acid.

What a headache that would be.

Doesn't this make you feel better about the governments plan to ship nuclear waste on trains and trucks to Nevada?


What could possibly go wrong?

No reason to be so caustic..

CSX officials were conducting an investigation to determine what caused the train to leave the tracks

The tracks were seeing another train

Call it a hunch, but I'll bet the cars carrying nuclear waste are going to be a *tad* more secure.

This calls for legislation!!!

Somebody get John McCain on the phone.

Maybe the tracks were outsourced to an overseas country?

/come on people, keep this going!

I'm guessing the wheels. My feet leave my tracks, though.

I agree, this is no way to conduct ourselves.

Yes, sleep tight. The same people that make Los Alamos the most secure facility in the world will be running the nuclear waste.

True story - I was waiting at a railroad crossing once, and was watching the tanker cars go past.

One was clearly labelled "Hydrochloric Acid", and the VERY NEXT CAR was clearly labelled "Sodium Hydroxide".

No, really. There must be some kind of law against that.
