I know how that is, I have a scroll or two the Cicero gave, he said they were great but, well, his taste in literature never really jibed with mine. So what does "Chia lo six" mean? It's a Six or Hit a Six in Mashona. A Six is when the batsman hits the ball and it doesn't touch the ground...

The port of Beirut not counting the naval base (which is also unusable at the moment). Handles roughly 7,000 ships per year. The next largest port handles roughly 450 ships per year. Is that a limitation of that port's capacity, or simply where ships go? I mean, not every port here on the US East C...

I'm not sure where people get this idea that it's only an explosive in mixtures, but ammonium nitrate will blow up all by itself. It's a relatively common accident.

Thats the least of our concerns when its ruined thousands of lives and taken hundreds. True, I just wanted to get the topic back on track. Are the gov buildings okay? Given that most buildings in Beirut are damaged, they probably are too. This collection of photos of the damage shows that the parli...

[Report] Beruit Explosion derailed

The last three pages have been nothing more than "It's totally reasonable to investigate a conspiracy theory lacking any evidence!" and "Is not!". Could somebody please loom omniously in order to move the thread in a more productive direction?

Honestly, anytime anyone ever mentions ISIS now, the only thing I can think of is that time Al Qaeda said they needed to tone it down, and they shot back that Al Qaeda are the “jews of jihad”. I don’t really understand the exact message there, but it’s clearly an insult in context. ...Don't most an...

Wouldn't that just make them look like idiots once the truth about the fertilizer came out?

Those who bombed were ISID militants.

There is no evidence this is a terror attack, and video evidence that strongly suggests it was an accident.

I don't think it was. You can see it burning before the explosion, and ammonium nitrate does tend to explode when it has been burning for a certain amount of time. And given that we are talking about thousands of tons of ammonium nitrate going up at once, it's not surprising that this was the effec...

This is why I prefer to watch the local feed whenever possible, they tend to be less obnoxious. But even they don't shut up. It goes back to an inbred fear of "dead air," I guess, which in radio could be deadly to listenership. We can see what's going on , guys, it's okay. Not only that, ...
