Yikes! An explosion at a ball bearing plant would be like the most massive IED ever conceived of.
Prayers up for the victims.
A Ball Bearing plant blew up?
It could take decades to find all the fragments.
Prayers up for safety.
Ball bearing factory blows up?
Looks like a very rural area but a lot of cars in the parking lot, it isn’t a small plant.
Prayers for the workers who were probably just going home when it happened.
Great WWII tie in there.
I assume the explosion itself doesn’t have to contain ball bearings.
For some reason the first thing that came to mind was a water leak
false flag by zero to take attention off of delayed healthcare mandate?
Hopefully this didnt turn into the world’s largest buckshot demonstration.
I’m thinking gas main for the furnaces.
Prayers up !
Schweinfurt, an industrial city of some 52,000 people located on the Main River in northern Bavaria, was a center for the manufacture of anti-friction bearings during World War II (and still is). As the U.S. 8th Air Force began to build up its strength in England in 1943, planners wished to concentrate on bombing those industrial targets that they felt would most hurt the German war effort, particularly the enemy aircraft industry. Low-friction ball and roller bearings were used in all parts of military and commercial machinery, and research indicated that roughly half of the German bearing industry was located in Schweinfurt, concentrated at four or five factory sites on the western side of town. The 8th Air Force planners felt that if they could strike hard enough at Schweinfurt, the results might cripple the German war industry.
Molten steel dumped into water could cause a steam explosion but there are no details. My first thought was the ROP.
World's largest Claymore.
Used to work at a roller bearing plant. We were a tertiary nuclear target.
Me too. dripping water and liquid molten metal tend to blow factories up when they meet.
Amish is what I thought too...but then again, Obammy and his radical leftist pals could have done something. I bet the NSA is in full swing now monitoring Conservative internet posts about it.
Or an episode of Hogan's Heroes.
