Metafilter has a great post about a rocket fuel plant explosion that happened outside of Las Vegas in 1988. Wikipedia has an article about the PEPCON(The Pacific Engineering Production Company of Nevada) disaster which is a fascinating read. You can see the shockwave from the explosion if you watch the video above.
Incredible! Anyone know the story behind this?

I see nothing wrong with prosecuting people (or roughing them up with some hired goons) who call in to your call in show. You are free to disagree with me in the comments but remember, I will have your IP number and may be forced to send out Cynical-C security (in the form of a ferocious 2lb cat)out to your house. Is disagreeing with me really worth facing this?
