In Russia, TNT sets you off.
Do they still make TNT? I know there are more powerful explosives now.
I remember my Father who was in the Combat Engineers in WWII, said TNT was safe to handle and use.
Bloggers worldwide are dumbfounded. “What is that awful noise that we’ve never actually heard before?? We need a word for it!”
Natasha: And the tenth time?
some good ones...
It’s Russia - it could have been alcohol.
Or a Muslim employee.
If I want to post something, I find that if I wait a little bit, another Freeper will post exactly what I thought:)
Lol. When I saw where the blast was, Boris and Natasha immediately came to mind. They don’t write ‘em like that any more.
Notice they mention the 79 injured.... It’s Russia...
How many dead?
Speaking of Russian/accidents, anyone watching Chernobyl ?
I clicked on the link, and it came up as “Video not available”
Yes. Pretty good, realistic show, but the killing of the animals in the last episode was heart breaking.
well damn... it worked a second before i posted it and now doesn’t work for me either
anyway, it was several munitions plant explosion videos in Russia and the Ukraine
i’ll try to find a different source
The blast occurred at the Kristall factory aka JSC GosNII Kristall Research institute in Dzerzhinsk, Russia.
They are primarily R&R and testing.
The Kristall plant also produces the explosive component of the FAB-500 M-62 High Explosive Bomb.
