Out of the Blue

We were driving yesterday when we hit a huge traffic slowdown, and shortly after noticed a large plume of black smoke rising up ahead. As we inched around the bend we saw that the smoke was coming from a minivan on the median in the immediate aftermath of what was obviously a horrific traffic accident, engulfed in a tremendous fire that looked like a special effect from a Michael Bay movie. Emergency vehicles were already on the scene with a number of good Samaritans attempting to help, so there was nothing for us to do except hope that there were no major injuries, as unlikely as that seemed from the scene. It turns out that this was indeed too much to hope for, as the news on the crash is grim (there's an AP video report on the YouTube), with eight dead, and the victims including both children and elderly folks. The news also explains why the crash was severe enough to cause the minivan to essentially explode, as for some unknown reason, the driver ended up on the parkway driving against traffic. All in all a sad and scary story, and a picture in my mind of that minivan on fire I will never forget.

Oh man, i'd love to see more BSG. We watched the first 2 hour movie of Caprica last night and i loved it. Great start to what could be an awesome series. More BSG beyond The Plan would kick some massive ass.

I don't believe in a lot of things, but I do believe in duct tape.
