This has gone viral. I got first tweet because everybody is over at Twitter rocking. Twitter is the coolest way to watch news in real time. The networks totally suck. They are showing crap stock footage from this afternoon. Head back to Twitter. Nothing to see here.

 

BTW-I am at @DavidBCollum. I could use some followers that are not pornbots.

Scores of Twitter users have flooded the social networking site announcing their plans to go on looting sprees once Hurricane Sandy makes landfall, as the New York National Guard announced it would put troops on duty in Long Island to prevent such activity.

Talk about redirection by the MSM, for some reason (I don't know, it is what it is) CNBS and CNBS World been showing olde clips of American Greed and associated horseshit tonight with no Asian financial coverage.

That plant makes hot air.... mayhaps some hot air losses over in Englewood Cliffs, hopea hopea hopea

Must gots to make the disaster BIG to make sure Victory Celebration of Messiah and His Heros of Capitalism Ring Throughout the Land Saving New York!

The Bernank just had an emergency press conference and claimed that the explosion referenced destroyed the underground vault that held Germany's gold reserves-- a significant portion of which Germany requested repatriation of recently (being kept under bailment by the New York Branch of the Fed as custodian).

Melted it, and the rats came to get warm, and died, then rabid packs of dogs and cats and rats ate the rats with the gold on their fur.

Only hope is to confiscate moo-shu pork and kung pao chicken from Chinese food restaurants but a Wok gets pretty hot.

Bullish for gold and tungsten plated Woks!

I am sure the operators are hunkered down and not in harms way, a lot of these guys (and some gals) have come from the Navy so are used to things becoming fubar.....  just a browning of the pants moment....

I would not want to be picking up the tab for those repairs.....  it is a 660 MW combined cycle dual fuel turbine (siemens?) plant, I wonder if what you saw was the back up gen set (electric side) going up in smoke, it was kinda big flash (s) for that? Did any other sections of the city go black with this mishap? Hmm no more de watering pumps...  lots of delicate instruments and equipment that don't like brine water.....  very bad. very expensive......
