It's amazing how far those canisters can travel.

It is also amazing how many stupid people drove past on the other side of the freeway while they were blowing up. I am betting the only reason no one else came through is because enough people stopped that no one else could get through.

That's right up there with "don't stick your wiener in the fan." One would think that some things would go without saying.
The mindless droning of the car alarms added something to the overall product.

I found it amazing that so many idiots would stay so close and then the cop car pulls up closer before getting the crap scared out of him and he backs off. Even the guy holding the camera slowly backs farther and farther away. I think he did it despite his being distracted by taking video.

Personally? I would have abandoned my car and gotten away from there on foot.

Wait, we're not supposed to do that? Since when?

For those that have not heard the term- it BLEVE. Pronounced as BLE-VEE. Boiling liquid expanding vapor explosion. The liquid in a pressure vessel- in these cases propane or isobutane, is heated, and comes to a boil inside the container- which is ruptured by pressure. The boiling liquid immediately changes to a rapidly expanding ball of gas.

The video of the PEPCON plant in Henderson NV shows what happens when several million pounds of an oxidizer- ammonium perchlorate- is involved in a fire.

So what sort of pressure does it take to rupture an undamaged tank like that C3?
