Holy crap, someone operating a forklift at the Port must’ve had a few too many doobiesnacks for breakfast today.
The following is an excerpt from: WRAL.com
MOREHEAD CITY, N.C. — Nine drums filled with an explosive compound were punctured by a forklift early Tuesday as they were being unloaded at the state port in Morehead City, prompting officials to close the port.
Morehead City Mayor Jerry Jones Jr. said the 50-kilogram drums contained pentaerythritol tetranitrate. Also known as PETN, the material is used in plastic explosives and as a drug to treat heart conditions. …
… the PETN was in a liquid slurry form, which limited the size of the spill.
Colorless PETN crystals are used in detonating cords for industrial explosions, and the compound also was a component of the explosive that Richard Reid, the convicted “shoe bomber,” used in 2001 to try to blow up an airliner. A Nigerian man charged with trying to blow up a Detroit-bound flight on Christmas told authorities he had PETN in his underwear.
“We know it’s a dangerous substance. However, it is contained (at the port),” Jones said.
So if we did explode, I would have been sound asleep when it happened, score!
Hope everybody had a safe and Happy Christmas/New Years vacation!
Mine was great until my buddy Chris took his Irish foot to my crotch, which was a fatal mistake on his part.
It seems he did not take too well to the slaughter I was wreaking on the Wii, and took matters into his own hands, well, into my own sack.
This did not fare well for my Irish buddy as he was unprepared for my assault from the fetal position. It began with a square punch in the taint, then rounding 2 swift strikes to the crotchal region with my Wiimote (that sounds so wrong).
Moral of the story: Don’t forget you’re on the Internet at Tragland!
