Several buildings are reported destroyed. KWTX reports a nursing home was damaged after the explosion in the city of West which is just north of Waco.

Local scanner traffic reports multiple structures on fire with many people trapped. A local school is being setup as a staging area. Emergency units are being asked to gather and Haven and Reagan.

It is not clear yet how many people are injured. Evacuations are underway.

Residents 65 miles away reported hearing the blast.

Yea, not that these events should be compared. But people in Syria and Iraq are getting bombed daily and countless lives have been lost.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

Why people read signatures:
  • It is an acceptable way to stare at women.
  • Allows people to have a counter-argument by insulting what is in a persons signature (pooh-pooh fallacy).
  • Allows people to show that they like a man and they put colourful things around the picture of a man(usually a hockey player :P).
  • To watch a funny GIF or a funny pic.
  • Funny Quote or Saying
So I have no clue why are you reading my signature!

Violence has never been cool .. the sooner Societies learn that they shall reap what they sow, the sooner Societies can focus themselves on what is best for mankind, and not just what is best for themselves .. karma is my opinion ..

It is not your "Country", it is your Society .. a Society that revels in violence, and spreads violence to other countries (see Iraq), is fated to be engulfed by the very violence they use to maintain their perch upon the pinnacle ..

Yeah, because it is fertilizer plant workers in Waco, Texas, and an 8 year old boy from Boston's fault that the US government has done some horrible things.
None of those people deserve what happened to them, and to even suggest that they did is disgusting.
