Well, I heard by the grapevine that a Chevy blew a head gasket, knocked the carb clean off the car, hit a guy holding a ladder for his buddy on a roof, guy on roof missed rung on ladder, ladder fell into telephone pole, hit the boom control for AT&T guy while he was servicing a pole box, knocked wire cutters from his hand, bounced off boom then pole over to electrical service tech servicing an control unit. Service tech (chevy guy) watching all of this transpire, was laughing so hard, he forgot he was holding a screwdriver and tightening a positive lead on the Eastern control panel. Positive lead and screwdriver touched metal at the same time and booooom! Now the service tech(chevy guy) is into Mitsubishis, his hair is straight as an arrow, and he talks so damn fast you can't understand him. This message brought to you by...........Like a Rock! ::

Regarding the explosion, this was posted last night by "Lightening".

Im a Boiler Operator at the Dunkirk Generating plant that supposedly had the explosion, and was there! Everything is fine, what was heard was safety valves on all 6 boilers lifting from a rapid pressure increase(about 2750 PSI) at the time the generators tripped, caused by a very rapid reactive voltage drop on the grid. This was followed by a normal puff of flyash from the stacks when the coal fires in the boilers are extinguished by a master fuel trip.. Everything worked exactly as designed without even a hiccup. But man was it intense for about a half hour... Lots of equipment to deal with all at once.
