Or just a gas leak.

One dead as New York City building collapses after blast

New York City Police Department says one person has died after an explosion in an East Harlem apartment building that then collapsed.

Fifteen others escaped with minor injuries from the incident, which sent smoke billowing into the city sky.

Residents heard a blast in the five-storey building at 116th Street and Park Avenue before it caved in.

All train services in and out of Grand Central terminal have been halted following the incident near its tracks.

'Gas smell'
The New York fire department has elevated the incident to the highest threat level possible.

"It looked like the [Twin] Towers all over again - people covered in dust and covering their mouths”

Mitch Abreu
Witness
It announced it has dispatched 168 members from more than three dozen nearby fire stations to battle the blaze.

The local utility has been called to shut off the gas following the explosion, which damaged windows in the area, reports WABC TV.

Streets and pavements around the site were littered with broken glass from shattered windows.

Witnesses reported the powerful blast knocked items off shelves in nearby stores.

Authorities in the area were said to be handing out medical masks to residents due to the thick white smoke at the scene.

A witness told the BBC "there was just a lot of panic" following the explosion.

Dan Scarvino had just emerged on to a nearby train platform when "suddenly a plume of smoke came out of nowhere".

"I've never seen anything like it," he added.

A witness told the New York Daily News she had smelled gas "for weeks" before the explosion.

"We saw people flying out of the window... those are my neighbours," Ashley Rivera said.

Another witness told the newspaper he heard two loud explosions that shook the barber shop where he works.

"It was loud, like boom, boom!" Mitch Abreu said. "It rocked the whole block.

"A window blew out of the other shop down the street," he added.

"It looked like the [Twin] Towers all over again. People covered in dust and covering their mouths."

I wonder if there will ever be an accident in America that does not get blamed on the terrorists again?

Get a grip, and a life

So just so ive got this right, you come into a thread and you dont like it so you insult it, then you insult me and i'm the one that needs to get a grip?


1. Get a life
Phrase used by insecure xenophobes as a response to someone with different hobbies, interests or attitudes to themselves. These people often think they have a lot of friends, but usually nobody really cares for them.
"You are intelligent, have a high-paid job and a good future? Get a life!"

"You don't like the same things as me? Get a life!"

2. Get a life
the ultimate insult for insecure people who have nothing better to say. people who use this "diss" have no life themselves. they usually say this to feel better about their own sad lives by criticizing someone else's "life".
U LIKE VIEDOGAMES? UR A BIG GAY NERD THOSE R FOR LOSERS I HAVE 59348753 FRIENDS AND U HAVE NONE BECUZ U PLAY VIDEOGAMES OMGOMGOMG GET A LIFE!

U PLAYED POKEMONS WHEN U WERE 5? OMG FAG BOY I NEVER WATCHED POKEMON I WAS TOO BUSY HAVING SEX AND DOING DRUGS OMGOMGOMG GET A LIFE!

U GOT AN A ON THE TEST? STFU I HAVE ALL F'S BECUZ I'M KOOL AND CARING ABOUT MY FUTURE IS FOR LOSERS FUCKING BICH BICH OMGOMGOMG GET A LIFE!

3. get a life
A phrase retards say to other people who they don't know anything about. It's just a dumb phrase to say because they can't think of anything else but just want your attention. The truth is the people who tell others to 'get a life' are the ones lacking the life.
Only losers say 'get a life' to other people.

4. get a life
An insult, commonly used by egotistical individuals who know nothing about the person they're insulting. It is mostly used when the person has found out that another person has a gaming/computer hobby and choses to insult that person (mostly behind a keyboard), rather than using his/her time to talk to friends or do something of meaning. Ironic, right?
Egotistical Tw*t "Get a life, fag!"
Guy with a different hobby: "Whoah, what a great insult. You sure told me."
Egotistical Tw*t (blissfully unaware of the sarcasm shown) "That's right!"

5. Get a life
An insult commonly used as a last resort; when someone gets pwnt so badly by a witty insult/comeback that they have nothing else to say other than "get a life".
Retard: You're such a nerd. You're never gonna get laid
Guy: At least I don't change the subject when someone asks how many friends I have.
Retard: Go get a life.

That was the point of the thread.
To point out how people and newspapers, especially tabloids jump to conclusions, perhaps you missed the last line in the OP?

I wonder if there will ever be an accident in America that does not get blamed on the terrorists again?

And you call yourself an administrator?

No, i call myself Mystic Zig.
