You're underground, what does it matter? Before beds night time was the perfect time to mine.

Actually, it's worse to mine in daytime, since all mob spawning takes place underground instead of being split between caves and the surface.

But it's a cool song and vid, so...

For some reason I think there's more to this story than meets the eye.

Doesn't have a favorite kind of explosion, as that would imply he has a least favorite kind of explosion

Funny how nearly all electrical failures (especially overhead wires arcing together in storms) are classed by non-electrical people as "transformer explosions." In reality, transformers rarely explode. Such an event would likely release large amounts of oil, cause a large fire, and be a local environmental disaster. Small transformers (like on utility poles) are normally fuse-protected and in the majority of failure situations the fuse blows before the thing actually explodes. Large transformers have extensive protection schemes designed to interrupt power to them at the first sign of a catastrophic failure - everything from differential protection (comparing power going in to power going out - if there is a discrepancy, it must be going somewhere it's not supposed to) to sudden pressure (if there were a worst-case scenario - an arc inside the sealed transformer tank) the sudden rise in pressure would trigger a sensor which in turn would trip all breakers supplying the transformer.)

there was a transformer that blew up at Pearson airport last summer, you could see the smoke from my house in central Toronto. big big fire. dunno about environmental impact tho.

On my commute I drive by one substation that had a huge one either explode, get hit by lightning, or something. It leaked the oil and burned for days. The power company had guys sitting there in a truck the whole time just watching it to make sure it didn't spread.

I routinely browse fark on my phone, and I dont see the ads.  Are you using fark.com, or m.fark.com?

We had pne blow up in Boston a year or so ago, took out part of a parking garage.  Parts of the area near the Prudential center had no electricity for 3-4 days.

My two favorite explosions:

The bridge scene in The Good, The Bad And The Ugly.  See Clint Eastwood almost get killed by rock at 0:26.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q951qv7EbKs

The explosion at the end of Tremors 2.  A real life HE explosion, only slightly marred by Brady doing a 'jump away from the explosion.'  Apologies- I was unable to find a version that wasn't a video of someone's TV screen.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2fiCM0eQlkA

You laugh, but when these explosions get signed to a major label, I'm gonna tell people I knew them from their Indy days...

Dudley Do-Right had an LP featuring "33 1/3 long-playing explosions" which he once used to
trick Snidely Whiplash.....maybe Dudley was on to something?
