This was just today, or yesterday (not sure how the time zones are working) in Russia.
Though I think that the subtitles in the video contain far too many exclamation points.
Why do I not do so many explosions? I used to do them all the time…
Mine clearing with C4! What fun!
It has been far too long since I last posted a random explosion. This one’s a doozy!
It was a good thing that the rocket testing I was involved in was a hybrid; while there was an impressive fireball to begin with, you don’t get showers of flaming debris because the fuel itself is only flammable in the presence of an oxidizer. Ahhh, good times.
Well, I think it’s been too long since something exploded around here, so here’s a liquid nitrogen/watermelon bomb:
This time, the explosions are wrapped in a Monty Python sketch. Just because I haven’t been following Larry Correia’s advice lately.
I found something missing from my blog. A big explosion. I haven’t been very good about taking Larry Correia’s advice to put in an explosion every 100 pages.
I fix that problem…
I don’t know what these Australians are doing with a French tank, but I like the video anyway.
And while on the subject of people with funny accents blowing stuff up, how could I forget to mention the old Top Gear Classic…
Why oh why can’t more Brits be like Jeremy Clarkson?
I haven’t done this in a while (this is the first Saturday I’ve had free in long time), so it’s time for an explosion. A famous explosion.
“Yum. Ack!” *heart attack!* “An explosion in my chest!”
I almost forgot! Continuing the military theme from last week, we’ve got another explosion.
The F-22 is pretty sweet. Too bad they are cutting back on it’s deployment. I’m not a big fan of the F-35 (Joint Strike Fighter), it just seems to be stuck in development limbo–behind schedule and over budget. From Air Power Australia:
A mature production F-22A in the 2015 timeframe, one which has absorbed avionic, engines, materials and production technologies paid for by the JSF program, will incur its principal production cost differences against the JSF in additional structure, and an additional engine/nozzle. The order of magnitude difference in cost between mature JSF and F-22A could be around US$10M to 15M flyaway – this estimate fitting very closely to cited flyaway numbers for F-22As post the current build number cap, vs the more conservative JSF estimates. If the then JSF comes in at 50 to 75 percent of the flyaway/FMS cost of the then F-22A, buying the much less capable JSF would be a folly.
Here they are talking about purchasing the fighters for Australian military, but you get the drift.
And now I’m probably going to be put on every security list know to man, for putting up something about explosions and airplanes right after talking about things that I can’t bring on airplanes. Oh well. Perhaps I will hope that a real person with a brain reads it, instead of an automatic computer thing.
Oh, and here’s some more info about the problems with the JSF. Wow, I like that website.
