Waking up this morning to a night of horrors:
“It was like an apocalyptic vision,” said Théberge, 44, who suffered burns to his right arm.
The youtube video linked on the above page has almost a million views in just over a day. Funny, I didn’t see anything about this story yesterday on any of my favorite websites. This from a town with a population of 5,932. Lac-Mégantic, Quebec – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
So what’s the purpose of all this? Town reconstruction project? It’s amazing that all the normal safeguards of public tax money seem to be discarded when a disaster strikes. Open up the wallets. Full steam ahead, damn the torpedoes (and the auditors).
Perhaps it’s to turn people against the automation of train traffic and conducting. Seems like to minor a meme though. Humans are being replaced at a rapid pace by computers and robots in every industry. (which always leads to me to the question, what are we going to do with all the surplus 220;human resources”?)
Check the link below and listen to thestar video. Listen to the scripted nature of the actor playing a townsfolk. “Explosions like an atomic bomb”. “Children separated from their parents.” WTF is that statement supposed to evoke? Does it even make sense? How could that even occur?
