Carnival Triumph, in Mobile's port undergoing repairs, was evacuated, and spectators were asked to move away from the waterfront.

There's your problem.


Goddammit, did Carnival piss off some gypsies or something?

This happened on the water... sharks live in the water. Let's not be hasty and exclude the possibility that this is their doing.

Reports are coming in that the exploding barges were incredibly close to a school of fish.  Why a city planner would allow objects with such explosive potential near the innocent is incomprehensible.

Everyone knows it was space aliens from Omicron Ceti 9, who plan to wipe us out in strange and not so creative ways.

You can't build on it, you can't grow anything in it. The government says it's due to poor farming.
But I know what's really going on, Stuart.

The Gordie Howe Hat Trick: ontariolightning: When you leave things unregulated and pay off inspectors to keep their mouths shut, bad things happen.

Same thing happens in Canada too; I got a case of beer there and one of the bottles had a mouse in it. They wouldn't give me a refund.

No one needs a high capacity 30,000 gallon assault barge except the military.

I don't think so. There's no way his mom is fitting in a 30,000 gallon assault barge

MrEricSir: earthwirm: MrEricSir: Wireless Joe: Whatever it is, I credit small government and their refreshing lack of regulation.  We'll probably find out the barges were carrying 1,350 times the natural gas that would normally trigger safety oversight by the US Dept. of Homeland Security.

So when the article says that they were mostly empty, it's all part of the conspiracy?

First reports are rarely correct...

So in other words, it's aliens?


The barges blow up at night. Mostly.
