So what is this, the third one in a month?  I'm starting to think these aren't "accidents".

Move along. Nothing to see here.

Heh

Remember the previous Fark threads on these explosions when I said terrorism is most likely the cause?

Now do you believe me? Do you not see a pattern here? These explosions are too close together to be coincidental.

Coincidental- I do not think it means what you think it means.

Spouting over-used memes to dismiss someone is soooo 2012. Why do you not explain to me what I do not understand?

They have had at least one a day.

One of the other forums are tracking them.

Im sure its coincidence and theyve been having one per day since forever....its just that big one piqued peoples interest

It isn't until you can see the explosion from the ISS that Fark will notice it.

Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, and 3 times is enemy action.

Yeah, it's really suspicious that a country with virtually no safety or environmental controls and a habit of cutting corners would keep having industrial accidents.

Not that I'm subscribing to some group or state purposely blowing up number of large chinese chemical plants, but its about as coincidental as the timeline of 4-5 walmarts simultaneously closing in texas because of 'water issues' right when they were about to unionize.

6 Walmarts were closed; and it was nationwide, not all in Texas. Other than that, your point is valid.

No, don't remember. I don't think it necessarily requires terrorism for this stuff to happen either, so I guess I don't believe you. I don't not believe you either.

We'd probably never hear about this or other exploded plants if it weren't for the over-the-top size of that last big one.

China just DGAF for safety. They've launched for a bunch of companies' space segments with plenty of failures that fly right into populated areas. They don't have any real enforcement of industrial safety practices unless something embarrassing happens and those responsible can't bribe or scapegoat their way out. This stuff happens quite frequently.

Of course, it could be terrorism, but you'd generally expect someone to take credit and highlight their cause or whatever.

Right, and there was no third tower. So we're back to coincidence.

^This.  And also they've had recent economic turmoil.  In this age of conspiracy theories, has the good old-fashioned insurance scam gone out of business?

"y'all" is generically singularal-plural  "all y'all" is super plural.  it refers to a group that should do something or share a trait

THANK YOU.

I love y'all as a plural pronoun.  And it's farking PLURAL.

When used as a singular, IMO it's in a snarky way, like applying the royal "we" to someone, which is as snarky as calling someone "princess" when they are acting all high and mighty.
