Is that a joke, or did they really? I wouldn’t be surprised if they did, but it is annoying.

"The bus ran over a mattress and the springs ruptured the gas tank."

I thought New York was the city that never sleeps...

If I was a terrorist, I’d blow it up during rush hour. Not after midnight.

My vote’s on the mattress.

No doubt, huh? I’m POSITIVE they tested that *bedding* already, and the gas tank! right? Move along... nothing to see here. Just a bombed out bus on Passover in Brooklyn - carry on, please!

Yeah, I’ll come back to think about this in the morning, but I’m pretty sure my original gut reaction is correct.

OP says Brooklyn.

Yes, I realized that after I posted the map. I work a few blocks from what would be 96th and 7th Ave in Manhattan (7th ave gets cutoff by Central Park at 59th Street, aka Central Park South). I just now got home from work (at 1AM). Also under meds from bad toothache and infection. Need a good sleep badly.

The bus ran over a mattress and the springs ruptured the gas tank.

That seems like a pretty blanket statement.

That is a Manhattan map. New York City has five “boroughs.” Brooklyn and Manhattan are two of the five, the others being Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island. Looks like the accident took place in the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn

Why? New York never sleeps. Is there a large Jewish community in that area?

Mattress...puhlease...

Those must be some long springs to reach all the way up to the gas tank. What was the tank made of cloth?

I’d need to see a demonstration of this before I could believe it.

If this is probable, it should be repeatable.

I don’t think the Jewish community is filling up the buses at this hour.

Passover starts tomorrow I think. People should stay alert if there is terrorist chatter.

Mine doesn’t it but dang, the box springs are present and trying to work their way up. IT’s the fat cats that I allow to sleep on the bed. I just know it... :)

I was on the front seat of a bus that had to swerve to miss a dining room set on I-95. When you’re in an area that’s been settled by the third world, it’s not that uncommon.

I didn’t think they were. Never crossed my mind.

If the springs are that strong, no wonder someone threw it out.

I hear yah... But then again... If you were going to make up a story to explain a bus explosion, would you make up ~this~ story? Sometime the sheer implausibility is evidence enough. :-)
