    This is my opinions and I am not a physics/explosion expert..

    Most of the explosion seems to be directed into the air above them. #1 reason they lucky..a bleve may have turned them into burn toast.

    < physics lesson>

    Reason why the shockwave destroyed buildings yet the vehicle stayed intact. Surface area and strength(and flexibility..) The vehicle has less surface area and is way stronger and more flexible than a building is. A building can have a huge surface area that can be flat..if made of brick or something like that..it doesn't flex much before crumbling into a bunch of pieces. Now..the vehicle absorbed the shockwave and apparently was moved sideways..if it was bolted to the ground or something like that..it would have been way worse for those being inside since it probably absorbed alot of the blast..altho alot still got inside and may have shattered their eardrums and maybe hurt internal organs and such..but the idea is the truck absorbed the shockwave and was able to move. A building is not able to be moved..when the shockwave hits the wall it pushes it..and said wall crumbles to pieces. So its all about surface area and how flexible said object is...and if it can move.

    </physics lesson>

    Hope that made some sense :anonymous: Ok ill admit..I loved physics in high school and if I could live with math above basic stuff..I would be an engineer

    Either something hit it, or what im guessing was some kind of reaction.

    thats strange. it even looks like the blast went more right of the fire after something "flew" into it

    The chemicals used at the plant does react badly with water, so maybe while the Fire Dept. was trying to stop the fire it reacted? :notsure:

    Guess it was fake until then. Hope he "gets real" on car tires spinning backwards on commercials too. (frame rate illusion)
    Since it was flame going in to it ... you cant fly flame...I can only speculate lightning or pressure relief valve failure igniting, etc.

    One thing conspiracy theorists never seem to explain is why they never get nabbed by them " powers that be " and go missing.

    or any number of things

    there's a reason fertilizer is used in cheap bombs

    if it was a drone strike


    people who were watching the fire
    SURE AS FUCK would have noticed a hellfire missile flying towards it, or something in the sky


    it's not like people's reaction to a fire is
    "DONT LOOK"
    "SEE THAT FIRE?"
    "DONT LOOK AT IT"

    Drone strike lol, new thing to fear, aliens are now so 90s. I'm going to get a remote control drone just to watch the tin-hats go insane.


    ps. F' plastidip, go full foil taco wrap! haha

    Exactly. How the fuck do you not see a fat missile coming from the sky, or getting the missile on a radar to begin with. I'm going to go with a "reaction" set it off. Not a missile lolol. The words terrorist attack would of been on every website you go on if it was a missile.

    True, I bet a cow farted and set the place off. Makes sense now.
