Can you imagine the fines and repair costs the farmer would have had to pay? I think he's better off dead.

And just in case anyone in Ontario is putting up a fence...

I don't think that was caused by post-hole digging...

Gaht dayum! That's a serious ******* explosion. And I thought nearly shitting myself over coming an inch from puncturing a 6'' main was something.

I didn't notice the scale at first until I saw the houses. I thought the image was much closer than it was. I wonder if the home owner had any idea that there was a pipe there. Surely in the land deed was the fact that there was a pipe like that there, and surely it was marked in a way that he would have at least seen a marker on his property at some point. Sucks for him and whoever else was killed in that massive fireball.
