"Maybe he just needs to stand in an open field"

Like the open field that hijacked airliner turned into a small crater?

Lightning would be too boring and not newsworthy.

FTFA: "I was just like, 'I can't believe this!'" said Berti, who said he had never witnessed an explosion before. Then he thought: "I just want to get out of here and get away from all these explosions."

There's a future Republican presidential candidate right there, folks!

If I knew him, I would be the a$$hole friend who would sneak up behind him and pop a big paper bag...

You know this person could make a fortune moving around and living near peoples ex-wives / husbands. Of course they might end up making just as much money being paid to move to the middle of Northern Alaska and running a weather station. I really sympathize for this person and everything that they have been through and hope they get the help they need.

dont stand in an open field, that might invite a meteor impact.  do you want an extinction level global catastrophe??
 
2013-04-19 07:35:01 AM
I'm not hangimng around with that guy even if he is buying the drinks.

Uh, yeah, the explosion wasn't in Waco.

I've been pointing that out about the Branch Davidians ad nauseum to people ever since I finished high school and left Central Texas.

Waco's just the nearest place with TV stations.

Bumfark, Texas doesn't get people's attention.

He's still got nothing on Tsutomu Yamaguchi.  Y'know, the guy who survived Hiroshima, then went home to tell his boss about it...in Nagasaki?  And survived that one, too?
 
2013-04-19 08:04:06 AM
Wasn't there some poor SOB who survived the Empress of Ireland, Titanic, and Lusitania sinkings?

Except we know straight away how lucky this guy is, where all the hibakusha were treated like lepers for decades because Japan.

The town is called "WEST"  (almost as dumb as the town we have in Maryland called North East, but not as  confusing as the towns of Indiana and California in Pennsylvania).


I've been singing the Marty Robbins song all week.

Talk about your psalms, talk about John 3:16... Austin 3:16 says KABOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!

He is planning a trip to Best Korea next.

JonZoidberg: bikerbob59: Uh, yeah, the explosion wasn't in Waco.

He's FROM Austin. He was driving down I-35 from Dallas to Austin, which passes right by West, Texas. He saw the explosion from the interstate, stopped, took a picture of the cloud, and was close enough that debris was falling on his car. Close enough to count, if you ask me. I mean, it's not like he's Tsutomu Yamaguchi or anything, but still.

Final Destination 7?

Negative.  Rainy and cold.

Passes through West.  Go that way to drop off the kids with their dad in waco(halfway point between us) for his time with them.

Things to do today...

1. Unfriend that guy.
 
2013-04-19 12:52:25 PM
There's always someone who isn't satisfied with one disaster and has to go looking for more.

The song says, "down in the west Texas town of El Paso..." Not West, Texas... (grew up hearing that sond endlessly) :-)

Things happen in 3's!  He's not done yet!!!

I have to say, I love his wife's good humor about it all. I imagine that guy getting teased for the rest of his life now.
 
2013-04-19 03:03:52 PM
He could unwind on a Carnival cruise.
