From really far away, you'd think. Jeepers.

Jesus I didn't see that video yesterday. Man going to the Lake or Austin I pass by West all the time along 35. That was a hell of a explosion. I saw a bunch of pictures and stuff but not that video.

Sorry if it hits a bit close to home, but it's amazing video nonetheless. 7 million views since this morning, just wish I could say it was Michael Bay overdoing it rather than a very real tragedy. Hang tough Texas!

Apparently this explosion is bringing up more criticism of letting business regulate itself:

It does and it doesn't. I just care about people being ok. I got a few friends in fire departments around Dallas that went down there within hours. From all I have seen of the outpouring of help to the victims they are in good hands. Was a really good video and we always hang tough!
