No. But he did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night. ;-)
Furthermore, there`s not going to be two explosions, even with complete combustion. The energy is dissipated extremely rapidly, and the chain reaction cannot continue. The closest you can get to this sort of multiple-explosion event is continual combustion, i.e. burning it continuously as fuel.
Oh, and you forgot the obvious- all the water released by the combustion is in gaseous form, and therefore the volume stays far too close to the starting amount to cause an implosion.
lmao, and you are a qualified expert on explosion analysis right?
to finish off the gas would now expand and the explosion happens
looks like a tidy bundle of dynamite aslpoded judging from the blast.
a tidy bundle of dynamite aslpoded
your a bomb expert are you? gas can do that you know.
I`ll get back asap after I make a couple calls on Tuesday. Cheers all. :)
I`ll make the call to Prince George`s County in Maryland tomorrow.
I think it`s definitely a reflection of a man in the glass of the storefronts. Additionally, I don`t dispute desslox`s knowledge of gas ignitions. However, I DO think more on the side that this was a planned and intentional exercise by local authorities. Whether or not the explosion/implosion happened as per plan remains to be known. But assuming this was just a "taxi" cam that just happened to be recording a vacant shopping plaza in the middle of the afternoon is far more a reach than the reasonable alternatives.
Or maybe I should begin believing that 9/11 never happened and yes, in fact there is beachfront property in Arizona. :/
So, Google is on the explosion side of the debate.
For some reason, the last few characters of a long post get chopped off, so
as for a "all clear for detonation" .... never heard of that in my line of work. any detonation other than a burn off isn`t called for. we have ways and means to suck the gas out and distribute it harmlessly into the air so the mixture is inert and no longer explosive.
as for the explosion in corner.... well that is where the gas accumulated and was in a explosive mixture. you have to have a certain mixture with air to get a bang/flash, to much air or gas and it wont be explosive to little the same effect
hope that "fuels" the speculation.... no pun intended
1. prob. a door ringer as the door opened. al you need is a spark and that is why you will never have a gas man ring your door bell.
2. friction from the look being turned made either a spark or a small static arc. thats all that is needed for that
Hey Habbazoot, yeah I saw that. DriveCam is utilized by my many fleets both public servant divisions and private companies. Also Prince George County is a Maryland county, from where this clip was recorded. There`s a redundant watermark since whomever originally uploaded the clip, did so by DriveCam.
It`s initial origin however I suspect, is not from just the layman taking random recordings at a shopping mall. Notice the empty and papered over windows? None of the businesses appear to be open.
Here are the links to both DriverCam and the state of Marylands counties.
This was a clip shot for training purposes. Many times fire and police use vacant or soon to be demolished property for training.
Why be there with a video camera and have other people around just a shoot a shopping plaza? Film crew?
NO ONE WENT INTO THE BUILDING...its just a reflection. fail
Oh well, it`s pretty!
Go back to the video and look at the sky during the explosion, it changes as well.
My guess is that this was caused by the camera.
Opie:the building contracted because of a change in pressure (underground maybe?), when the explosion happened. Causing the ground the building is on to shift, making the building buckle slightly. The exploding you see is slightly delayed from when it actually sploded.
Well that`s what I think`s going on.
However the explosion doesn`t look like a planned one at all. But he says "all right" before it happens. :\ So I don`t know what to think.
P.S. Someone who`s good at physics, why does the building contract before exploding?
Gotta be demolition of some sort...
