  • WHY didn't anyone push the flush handle when they had the chance????

  • Looking forward to Billith.
  • "The owners reportedly are returning Monday from a business trip to South Korea"

    I'm sure you'll see them any day now...
  • The signs for that exit on I-20 are "Goodwill Road Ammunition Plant".
  • I have no idea what any of this headline means and am too tired to find Jackie Chan.
  • That show jumped the shark with the introduction of witches and glow faeries.
  • It's artillery propellant, so it's not the stuff that makes the artillery round explode. It's the stuff that explodes inside the artillery tube to push the artillery round downrange. It burns fast and hot but doesn't create an explosion in the traditional sense. If this stuff went off, it would cause a huge, bright fire but not much else. Great for arson, not so great for blowing up Tru:Blood plants.

    //I hope Billith catches a stake next season
  • That's not entirely true. It wasn't a Tru:Blood plant. It was a Tru:Blood plant rehearsal.
  • Ahem. Subby.

    Next time an article talks about 6 MILLION POUNDS OF ARTILLERY PROPELLANT/big>b> LAYING AROUND OUTSIDE IN CARDBOARD BOXES you might emphasize the fact that 6 MILLION POUNDS OF ARTILLERY PROPELLANT ARE LAYING AROUND OUTSIDE IN CARDBOARD BOXES!!1!

    /just jealous cuz Subby got a green light
  • Doom MD: That show jumped the shark with the introduction of witches and glow faeries.


    That's all direct from the source material. Don't blame the show for that.I think they jumped the shark when they included vampire gods.
  • I live there and have to say that subbys headline makes no sense at all. "camp' Minden??? Referring to New Orleans doesnt make any sense either since it is almost 300 miles away
  • So purchasing wasn't informed that inventory had already been filled? Were they producing it but there was no place to send it? To keep the contract and employees going? It's a former ammunition plant being leased, so the explosives are left over from previous company? If the new company produces explosives also why wasn't that mentioned?

    I do not feel informed except for that a pile of scary stuff is somewhere and I should be concerned and cluck while shaking my head.

    /all the assumptions I need to make....
  • In other news, The Six Million Pound Man is now in development at SyFy.

    I hear the pilot is going to be a ratings explosion.
  • Doom MD: That show jumped the shark with the introduction of witches and glow faeries.


    Yup.
  • Whoops! Their sucession plans just hit a snag.
  • mariner314: Looking forward to Billith.


    I'm not. IMHO, they killed the show.

    The interesting thing about TB was how the vampires coped with maintaining (or failing to maintain) their humanity. While some may have suspected that Bill was duplicitous, it was confirmed at the end of the season 2 years ago. Eric was the one that has the firmer hold on his humanity (compliments of Godric).

    The writers painted themselves into a corner. At least with the previous seasons, they more or less followed the basic plotlines of the books. This season they went completely off the reservation. Sookie doesn't choose Eric, Billith, etc. There's no vampire alive or dead that can defeat Lilith. Anything they'd come up with would be contrived nonsense (and don't even think about having Bill beat Lilith from within because his willpower is so great...Bill met the True Death).

    (Bing Maps says 334 miles)

    Came in to say the same ..... Shreveport here, parents live on Hwy 163, near the State Park

    6 million pounds of smokeless powder stuffed into warehouses would do a little more than cause a huge bright fire, I would think.

    If'n its anything like the plant that 'sploded near my hometown, they are not manufacturing artillery shells, but "demilitarizing" them. We have a crapton of arty munitions laying around from ww2 and korea that has outlived its shelf life. So they find a dumb enough contractor and pay them, say, $1.00 a boxcar load to disassemble the ammo and dispose of the components. Most of the time the components are reloaded into new shells and sold to the civilian market, at least with small arms stuff. Other stuff is recycled for component materials (copper and brass) and explosives are safely disposed of or sold to mining operations and such.

    What got these guys in trouble is taking gubmint money without a proper disposal site for the munitions components. Dangerous stuff backed up faster than they could get rid of it. And don't even ask how much of that nitrocellulose walked off the property and into someone's basement 'in case of emergency".
  • How many megatons is 6 million pounds of explosives/accelerant? Or does it need to be actual TNT before you can call it megatons?

    Which is to say nothing of the plotlines involving characters noone gives a damn about. Who cared about the PTSD guy and the djinn going after him? It was annoying to see an interesting bit about vampire politics and then have it cut away to some annoying scene with them. The gay cook is usually great for snappy one-liners but they had him babbling about witches and his dead boyfriend the entire time. These are supporting characters, please stop derailing the narrative with these side-stories.
