A Taxi Cab Exploded in My Driveway

Jul 29, 2008

Through the Internet, sharing data has — you know what, I’m not even going to try to make this relevant. A car exploded in my driveway!!!!

It was 6am and I was laying in bed. There was a continuous honking horn that was annoying the crap out of me. I figured someone was trying to get someone else to move their car so that they could pull out, but after a minute of one long honk, there was a huge BOOOOMMMM!

I ran to my office window, and I saw a car on fire!! I managed to get some of it on camera:

It was quite the sight – and now my apartment smells like smoke. Luckily no one was hurt.
