I've always heard Kansas City has some good BBQ.

If I weren't so tired I would go check it out after work.

But I'm too tired.

Feel bad for the victims, hope everyone survives.

Kansas City is a lie. It's in Missouri.

Most of the excitement has died down (no pun intended). Have heard that a construction crew nearby laying fiber optic lines accidentally hit a gas line. A truck later backed into some sort of metal object, and the spark ignited the gas. People reported smelling gas for at least an hour prior to the actual explosion, so places were already evacuated...which explains the surprisingly low number of injured. From what I have also heard, just one person (an employee of JJ's) is currently unaccounted for.

A meteor the size of a school bus exploded over Russia giving us some of the most spectacular video that I've seen in years and it took almost a whole day before it was posted. We're lucky this showed up at all.

"We heard that it was a car hit a gas main."  Is that even possible? I'm used to gas mains being strictly below grade.

Not as cool as the time it happened a few months back, in Massachusetts or wherever.  That time had strippers.

Actually he's saying that fiery gas explosions in Missouri are God's punishment for Kansans electing a disingenuous putz for governor.

Happens all the time.  I told a couple of kids in Atlanta once that I was from Kansas City.  One said, "Kansas?  Where's that?"  and the other one snapped his heels together and said "You know, no place like home!"  I facepalmed.

I'm glad they evacuated first or that could have been really bad.  It still sounds like there are some pretty serious injuries.

God never was selective with his wrath and ire. Especially Old Testament God.

He got some anger management classes, and stated on Lithium before the New Testament.

I was going to submit this with the headline "Filming for Transformers 4 gets underway in Kansas City".  Alas, someone beat me to the link.

This headline seems...tame.

People still don't quite understand that there are two Kansas City's.  They get even more confused when you tell them that Missouri used the name first before Kansas was even a state.

I know. That's why I was shocked when I heard this happened in Country Club Plaza. It looks like JJ's is tucked in the neighborhood behind the aparment buildings. So I think that limited the size of the fire.

If this would've happened where all the other restaurants in the Plaza are. This could've been a whole lot worse.

But why would God punish the Promised Land

/Jackson County (ie: KC Metro) is considered the promise land in the Mormon Church
//I like KC as much as the next guy, but I don't see what makes it the promise land

Gas had been noticed by some as far as 3 hours before explosion.  Reportedly, MGE (Missouri Gas & Energy) employees were at JJ's checking on gas when explosion happened.  Employees who noticed smell turned off appliances and were trying to shut off gas when explosion happened.  JJ's was one of the better restaurants in KC and had one of the top wine collections in the world.

Don't watch BBC News right now.

They have this story labeled as "Kansas Fire".

Wait until the people shocked about this being in Missouri hear about East Saint Lewis. Heads will explode.

There are three.  Kansas City, MO, Kansas City, KS and North Kansas City.
