Holy Smokes: Video Of An Underground Water Main Exploding In Ukraine

May 31, 2017

This is some surveillance camera footage of an underground water main exploding in Kiev, Ukraine. I don't know why, but when I think of water mains exploding, I think of Ukraine. I wonder why that is. Could you imagine if you were on the toilet at a date's house when this happened? "Nothing would have happened." Sure, not until you needed to double-flush because those spicy nachos ran right through you and now there's no water for the second flush. Then what? "Climb out the window and tell yourself it's cool, she wasn't the one anyways." Exactly.

Keep going for the whole video with different angles.

Thanks again to Alpha Centurion, who can punch harder than that.

    Any word of the condition of the person walking on the sidewalk?

    I read two reports that said "amazingly no injuries were reported" so I'm hoping they were able to be behind something because that one car's windows were broken out

    Terrifying.

    That happens all the time where I live, but not nearly that explosive. It's a combination of the freeze/thaw cycle, and the fact that the city insists on using the cheapest pipe they can get to save money, but then they lose money by having to constantly fix the water main breaks.
    After a water main break is repaired, sinkholes sometimes appear, so wait a few months for "massive sinkhole swallows cars and buildings in Kiev" lol

  • That shit is gonna happen allover the planet as a result of overpopulation

  • Also: more and more in the US, because building new things is sexy, but maintaining the things that you already built is not. Also: sucking: we're good at it.

    Just like watchdogs

    Yes, exactly this.
