The steam went higher than the Chrysler building. :ahhh:

RIP to the person that didn't make it.

Ugh.

The old man saw it on the way home. Spitting rocks and street gravel a mile high. NYC has an intricate underground. No pun intended. I feel very sorry someone got killed. What the hey.

I would bet a poster of Vinny Testaverde that the first thought of anyone was the ted word. I send sympathy out to the family of the one loss and anyone that was injured, but it is sad that now the first thought that anyone has when something happens is terrorism. I don't want to incite anything, but this is a ****ed up world we live in today, fearing the worst always. At least during the Cold War, it was never constant, and nobody ever saw what could have happened, but we have, and everyday we are reminded of it, even if it wasn't carried out by any group, but was just an accident.
