    Why can't people turn their phones to landscape mode? It makes these things much easier to view.

    I saw that video last night with a short article. Apparently it was natural gas powered and the explosion damaged 4 houses.

    You think that's bad... wait until a fuel cell vehicle explodes, 3 times the pressure of the tanks on a natural gas vehicle (or more!)

    Agree 100%
    Just as when Apple iPhone users upload a bunch of photo skewed 90 or 180 degrees then act like nothing's wrong.

    Or wait until a Hydrogen tank explodes on a Murai.

    That's a funny typo there. "Mirai" best translates as "Future". "Murai", which isn't really a word, can be written so that it means "No future". :)

    Car hits gas pump and sets it on fire.

    A dramatic crash at an Arlington gas station was caught on camera Monday. Surveillance video from the Shell station on E. Pioneer Parkway shows a blue sedan plow into a car parked at a gas pump. A number of children were in the car, but everyone escaped.

    [As a bonus, you'll probably be pushed a commercial for a vehicle that will let you replicate the incident.]

    I hope the kids weren't in the car that got hit. If so, then their Dad was certainly covering his butt when he ran from the car leaving his kids to the fire and possible explosion.

    Looks like the kids were in the car crashing into the gas station.

    Maybe add to the title, "gas stations are dangerous."

    Misleading title. It's just the tire not the SUV.
