A woman was killed by two smoke bombs flying at 150mph being used for special effects in a new TV show about military vehicles. The foot-long bombs hit Terri Flanell, 51, as the flew through the air like rockets at 150mph at a Colorado rifle range Thursday.

Now there's some grammar for you.
Yada, Yada! Then don’t read it!
We Conservatives treasure Our Freedom of the Press and Speech!
If You don’t like it, like most Liberals and Demorats, then please just:
Sure, the smoke accident could have happened in a different context. But it happened in *this* context — a show about military hardware — because that’s the show that was being produced.
I have watched my share of such shows over the years, but now that I’m a bit older I understand how these things reveal our true interests. As an old fashioned conservative I am wondering about the social costs of a militarized culture and the glamourization of gear designed for governments investing in new ways to push people around. Conservatives used to care about stuff like that.
What if it were your spouse? I’m to the right of Rush and to the left of God, pal - and your heart is as black as your twisted soul.
You, my dear Soul, are Brain Dead!
Judge NOT! Lest Yee be JUDGED!
YOU ARE THE TWISTED SOUL!
I assume you’re trying to insult me, but you’ll have to be clearer. In the meantime, try to develop a sense of humor and not be such a scolding douchebag. The people forced to associate with you will be much better off.
CUT YOUR LIBERAL CRAP!
I just said we have the Freedoms to Speech and Press!
Read my Post! You Liberal MORON!
Oh, please. This sounds like a home-made reality show gone wrong. If you’re so anti-military, aren’t you late for a protest somewhere?
SHE/IT/Transvestite/HIM is obviously a TROLL!
Yes, it is.
Personally, I find it amazing that so few accidents are reported. Even though the explosions involve paper and cardboard, the actors are not wearing eye protection or other protection and it is plainly evident that debris is flying all around them.
The same, exact thing happened to a lady on my block, except the smoke bombs were about an inch long, and they weren’t really going that fast since they kinda bounced off of her, and they didn’t hurt her or anything, but they did leave a smudge mark on her shirt. Now that I think about it, they might have actually been a couple of those black snake things you light and they kinda puff out and and twist and everything. Nevertheless, I think she was pretty lucky she didn’t end up like that other lady.
You are Sick! Let others judge You as they have started to do! You are the twisted Soul! May GOD SAVE YOU FROM ETERNAL DAMNATION! I am not to judge.......
Hemorrhoids like you are true blue. Man the lady is dead, maybe those husbands who have lost a spouse don’t measure up to your standards but they are more human than you. You cannabalise your own - low class, very low class.
Poor woman. I hope she didn’t feel any pain.
Henpecked fathers who have busted their asses at work and just want a little peace will give in and let the mothers do it, even though they know it's a stupid comparison and their wives are just being bitches about it.
Actually, "only" about 100 die in auto accidents per day on average.
Our hearts go out to him and his family.
We're all hoping that this incident doesn't end up getting the place shut down, either out of Dragonman's grief or because of some knee-jerk, nanny, government reaction.
A lot of local are introduced to firearms at this range.
It’s well to wish there was no more war, but also with maturity comes the wisdom that it won’t be banished from the face of the earth until the Savior returns, and that during this period those who beat their swords into plowshares will end up serving those who do not. So if the occasion for war arrives, shall we all go out fighting with long faces, as C. S. Lewis puts his disapproval of semi-pacifism? Empirically, the greater error today is that of appeasement rather than combat.
And anyhow, the scene was designed to be physically harmless to film. This was not a piece of war materiel that did what it was supposed to do.
