    Chinese Exploding City Appreciation Thread




    https://www.youtube.com/embed/MHQPX2TJPQc


    First reports indicate that a huge shipment of explosives was not exactly handled with care.
    When I see a bird that walks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck id call it a duck.
    And if the bird denies to be a duck it is a russian duck.

    First their escalators start eating people, then their cities just up and explode. What's next China?

    a got a shoe eaten by an escalator in john lewis when i was very little. it was very very scary, and mummy and daddy got a new washing machine as a form of apology.

    never trust escalators.

    Miep, please save the hyperbole for the Ukraine thread.

    That looks like a block or two of Tianjin just got scattered over a wider area.

    Looks like a petrol station went up. That's a pretty big boom.

    That's one big explosion. No doubt the Chinese authorities will quickly be on the scene to temporarily shut down weibo.

    It's always interesting to note how people don't expect the pressure wave from the blast.

    at least in the second video you just linked they had the foresight to get down.

    Those are some big bangs. Awful lot of fallout around the area as well (left hand side of the screen in the second vid looks pretty bad). Will look forward to more info. Really hope the Chinese authorities don't censor information and really, really hope the toll isn't too high and the emergency services have their shit on full form. Would like to know what the fuck caused that bang ... explosives reported but there are some conflicts of information. As a wild guess could be in the kiloton area of bangs.
    Shitting up eve for .... well, longer than most of you scumbags.

    Meanwhile, in Moscow...



    Looks like Elon Musk has finally worked out the kinks in his orbital laser cannon.
