« on: January 09, 2014, 02:43:27 AM »
Via the BBC:

At least five people have been killed in an explosion at a chemical factory in central Japan, police say.

The blast occurred at a plant run by Mitsubishi Materials in the town of Yokkaichi in Mie prefecture.

Maintenance crews were working on a heat exchanger used in the production of silicon products when the blast happened, a spokesman at the plant told the AFP news agency.

At least 12 people are reported to have been injured.
Anyone who tells you you can't buy happiness has never been in a book store or an animal shelter.

You are the result of 3 billion years of evolutionary success. Act like it.
