My favorite is the guy that sounds like he's trying really hard to poop when doing his rap bit. Fiber would ruin his shtick.

In general, a large number of deaths from an explosion often results when you pack it, and fire it up.

It's impressive, though, how they never complain, when you hit the area with that flame.

fta:

'They claim they started smelling gas 12 hours before the blast and called their landlord who told them not to call 911.

"He says 'Don't worry, I'm taking care of it. I have someone working on it now.' I called him again when I brought the kids home from school. He supposedly fixed it. He didn't fix," Rodriguez said.
CBS2 called the landlord to ask what measures he took to address the reports of a gas leak, but he hung up on our call.'


and this is why tenants rights are important.

this landlord, is he gonna cover all the losses incurred by the families/individuals that live in the building?

Gas is nothing to mess with. This landlord needs to be prosecuted.

These people rigged the gas lines in their house to explode for the insurance money:

It resulted in the deaths of two of their neighbors and damage to surrounding homes that rendered them unsafe to live in. One of these people is in prison and will never get out. The other died of cancer while in prison.

Oddly enough that happened in a neighborhood called Richmond Hill.

Some years ago, here in Chicago, people in an apartment building were stealing natural gas to run their stove, used automotive radiator hoses. It, of course, did not go well.  One of the first firefighters on the scene said that it looked like a jet engine's exhaust was coming out of one of the windows. There were kids in the apartment, and they didn't make it.

my guess is something wasn't exactly "up to code" and calling pd would result in bringing in the fd (who you're supposed to call for such things like "smelling gas" to begin with), and once the fd found something, they're gonna want to know what other shennanigans have been pulled with this building.

Yep. I was driving home from work right after it happened.  Everyone was outside their home trying to figure out what was going on. I pulled over to let the longest line of first responders go by I've ever seen. Multiple jurisdictions. Got home and turned on the TV.  It was surreal.

It really is surreal, seeing that much devastation first hand.  I didn't see that one but many years ago there was a gas line explosion near where I lived up on the north side, the aftermath of that looked very similar.  There were 3 or 4 homes that were just gone, and the houses next to those had half the vinyl siding melted off from the heat.

/ that one was an accident though
