They really shouldn't put those so close together.

I hope the trunk monkey was okay.

The car was destroyed but the woman, a nurse from Winchester Hospital, was not hurt.

Acetylene monkey, not so much.

I gotta say, of all the ways your car can suddenly and irreversibly become destroyed, accidental detonation sounds like the coolest.

Vehicle explosion at BJ's in Stoneham

Wow.  That's one hell of a BJ

/wait, what?

And this is one reason you never put tanks of combustible gas inside a vehicle.

I want to see this on Mythbusters. Not because I don't believe it happened, but just because I like when they blow stuff up.

In other news, Farker reaching for "story link" button apparently presses "multiple popunders" instead.

Yeah, I'd forgotten to turn blocking back on, but fark that site anyhow.

was kinda wondering if maybe there aren't some rules of safety ding-a-ling boyfriend ignored. whenever you see this equipment on work rigs it is open air, chained in place.

You should always press the remote trunk release while walking away from your car and looking like you could give a fark, just in case.

Everywhere I have ever gone that sells tanks for welding has the greatest pictures of blown up cars mounted on the wall warning that you do not put them in enclosed areas and never inside a car So I am sure it was a simple mistake on the boyfriends part- how could he have known?

Standing close and getting your car blown up by the "accidental" actions of a friend, getting your car blown up by an enemy, and getting your car blown up by terrorists is all about the same -- except that the terrorists won't try to kill you a second time by negligence or on purpose.
 
2013-01-28 12:54:32 PM  
I am struggling to come up with something involving propane and propane accessories, but I don't care enough.

I am happy to put the idea out there though.
 
2013-01-28 12:55:27 PM  
I believe this needs a "Lucky" or "Scary" tag, not a "Cool" one.

If I join TotalFark after 10 years of refusing to give in, would I be able to make proper changes? No? I think I am fine...

There also needs to be a "Ballsy" tag for the individual who tries to attempt something awesomely foolish, but fails. For example, stealing 65k worth of wings.

Two men were discussing their married lives when one mentioned that he was a 3-time widower:

"Oh, I'm so sorry, what happened?"

"Well, my first wife died when her car exploded."

"That's terrible, what about your second wife?"

"She died when her car exploded as well".

"Jeez, that's awful luck. What about your 3rd wife?"

"She died from a caved-in head".

"What, How?"

"She wouldn't open the trunk of her car".

Lionel Mandrake: Vehicle explosion at BJ's in Stoneham
Wow.  That's one hell of a BJ


Yeah, but they were better when Stoneham still had Jerry Jingle's.

No, I am not making up the name of that ice cream stand. I used to live in the neighborhood. When I wanted to tell locals how to get to my place, I'd say "take Fellsway East over to where Jerry Jingle's used to be and bang a right where you'd normally bang a left to get to Stone Zoo."

And no, the Stone Zoo is not a petrified game farm. One of my best friends, a Harvard man mind you, was so let down when he learned it was just the north shore branch of the Franklin Park Zoo named for the town it's in.

/these tales make no effing sense at all now that I live in Los Angeles. Wicked bummer.

dukeblue219: I want to see this on Mythbusters. Not because I don't believe it happened, but just because I like when they blow stuff up.


I think they did one similar to it, from Russia. It was mentioned in one of the viewers specials, and they didn't expect it to explode, then when it did they couldn't use it for a regular episode. The question was something like "did you ever have a myth confirmed so fast you couldn't show it?".

The boyfriend of the car owner, who works for an HVAC company, had welding equipment inside the car. Investigators believe vapors ignited from acetylene tanks in the truck. It is believed there may have been a leak from that tank.


Anybody know the results of her last pregnancy test?

Came for woman driver jokes. Leaving meh-ified. So I'll drop a Mitch:

I once drove for 15 miles with my emergency brake on. Now, I know that doesn't say much for me.
But it also doesn't say much for my EMERGENCY BRAKE.

Exactly. The place where I used to buy CO2 for the kegerator made me put even that on the roof rack.

TFA wanted to say trunk, but had truck instead.

meh, no manufacturer calls it the 'emergency brake'. it's called the parking brake because it's only useful for preventing a slow roll. It would be useless in a real moving emergency, or if you're unlucky, cause a dangerous fish tail.
