Methlabicus Prime

I'll admit it, I laughed out my nose for that one.

I was in St L 2 weekends ago and while I do actually like the city (why? who knows), I can't deny it is remarkably dirty.   My son kept asking "What's that smell"  and all I could tell him is "Just try to ignore it, we're going to the City Museum* and all will be well"

*Coolest place on earth

That explosion happened years ago.  Get over it.

Fresno, CA, Bridgeport, Conn, and Philly would all like a bigger word. St. Louis is not the dirtiest city in america, nor do we have the highest rate of STD's in the country. The only noteworthy distinction we have had is Most Dangerous City(3years, dropped to 4th this year)

The story was neither news, funny or interesting and Fark has no 'Boring' tag. So I felt sad for the made-up trailer park wife and her little ATVs who would never grow up with their father. Have a heart.

Fail, Interesting, Scary, Weird, or even Misc would have been preferable to the Sad tag.

The lack of diligent tagging on my white trash robot joke is definitely a symptom of this site's declining journalistic standards. I apologize for the inconvenience of misdirecting your emotional response.

It would also make a GREAT Fark handle for a midwesterner.

Great headline!

To the people who think St louis is the dirtiest city in the US, you need to drive down Indianapolis Blvd in East Chicago. It's outright hellish.

Downtown STL isn't exactly chock full of meth labs.  If this had happened in Jeffco, then the headline could work.

Mazzic518: st Louis is the dirtiest city in this country


Says the scared little white sub-urbaninte scum who only goes into the city to attend ball games. To which they park as close to the stadium as they can, travel in large packs, and hurry as fast as possible from their car to the safety and security of the stadium least some black person talk to them.

I wonder how many transformers actually exploded. My knee-jerk guess would be "none."

Unless the assessment comes directly from a utility, I would say it was simply an electrical fault. A sustained high-voltage arc in a vault would be enough to blow manhole covers off and cause lots of damage. Transformers are fairly robust and rarely explode, especially the larger ones, which are protected by "sudden pressure" relays that immediately trip the transformer offline if a sudden increase in pressure, as with an arc, occurs.

News outfits report any sort of electrical fault or arc as a "transformer exploding."

John Luth, director of the underground division at Ameren Missouri, said that a transformer that served the building failed, which caused the fire. "That just happens sometimes for whatever reason," he said.
