DoctorCal: So, if the project sets off a massive quake in Bend- say greater than 8.5 or so, there might be millions of dollars of improvement?

Dollars inimprovements

It did over a million dollars in improvements in my area.. Tens of thousands of improvements reported

a few hundred million in improvements.

Bzzt, sorry, we were looking for "hundreds of dollars inimprovements."

Tip of the clicheberg. "HOTY!!!" in 5...4...3...

You know, some clichés/memes are like Emma Watson/Dwayne Johnson meme. You know the set up, you know the punchline, but god damn if you don't laugh every single damn time.

Well, it looks like they're certain nobody got hurt - that's a blessing, anyway.

Benevolent Misanthrope: Actually, in all seriousness, it would not surprise me if this were an act of sabotage from the people who want the Athabascan Oil Sands shut down.  Or from an operative of the Canadian oil industry to convince the government of Canada to stop trying to get the US to agree to Keystone and let them go over the pole to Asia.  Or by some bored ghetto kid in Detroit who wanted to do something impressive.

Would it surprise you if it happened because corners were cut because some asshole in a fancy suit wanted to make a little more money? In all seriousness? I don't mean just some of the f**king seriousness. I mean ALL of it, cocksucker!!

Mentioned in John Steinbeck's Novel, Of Mice and Men The Passage states "You seen that glove on his left hand?"
"Yeah. Seen it."
"Well, that glove's fulla vaseline."
"Vaseline? What the hell for?"
"Well, I tell ya what - Curley says he's keepin' that hand soft for his wife."
"That's a dirty thing to tell around," he said."

mikaloyd: Just Red Wing fans celebrating

They used to be nice work boots, but then they "improved" them, so I'm not a fan any more.

Just Another OC Homeless Guy: No no. You can never blame governmental oversite - no matter how much of it or how overbearing and suffocating it is. You must always blame that non-existent whipping boy boogyman, "free enterprise."

Alright...tell us how overbearing and suffocating government oversight caused this explosion?

I'll wait...

Yogimus: stiletto_the_wise: Another industrial accident. Nothing a little more de-regulation and less Obama can't fix.... right?

Well, more Obama sure as shiat doesn't seem to be working.

Your posts are making less and less sense.

Oldiron_79: BitwiseShift: Petroleum from tar sands. What if they don't get all the sand out?

Who still uses Vaseline?

Raises hand. It's good for keeping hair dye off your face when home dying and it's good for my kid's diaper rash.

Probably not too much of a bump, this is a pretty small scale operation, all things considered .. I think. I could be wrong, though.
