    Just saw on the news.
    A gasoline tanker truck blew up in Melbourne. No word on casualties or what caused it, yet. Any idea if it was an accident or if maybe the scuzzy Muzzies were behind it?

    no stupidity was behind it

    right next to a pub full of people and 80 yards from a bunch of kids

    the tanker driver did not use the fume sucker thingamajig or his anti static lines and then was chatting on his phone

    and to make it worse when it did flash he pulled the hose outta the tank but did not stop the pump so it went everywhere !!!

    its all on video and the comment range ( from the safety experts) that the guy musta been drunk stupid etc ..

    he's to be fined and lose his dangerous goods licence which is all they can do unless theres a death ,

    just a dummy who ignored all the safety stuff

    because we are so dry here , static on fuel is way dangerous ( ask folks in texas or other dry places ) .. and this is what happens when you ignore the rules ..
