Tragic for the family but a good example of the difference between the speed of light and the speed of sound. :|

Hmmzzz. So 9 seconds you say. I din't count. But i think the speed of sound depends on weather conditions and that the speed of sound is around 340.29 M/s. So that means the explosion was around 3 KM away? 340.29 M/s times 9 seconds is 3062.61 Meters. that's 3+ KM.

1500 pigs in a nearby barn must probably pay with their lives, hope the driver NEVER (!) touches another vehicle :'( Besides I hope this is the end for his employer as well. Storing explosives like that is to ask for tragedy!

A big loss for the family and i'm sorry for that.

However... this video has 0 entertainment value. It's not interesting, not funny, cute, silly, educational.. it's not even a viral ad! why is it here?
