A train carrying oil in Texas legit exploded. If only we had some safe technology to “pipe” said combustibles along a “line.”

A train carrying petroleum crashed into an 18-wheeler truck in Texas on Tuesday, resulting in an insanely large fireball:

Amazingly, neither the train crew nor the truck driver were injured.

The train had 13 of its 110 total cars derail in the accident. The flames could be felt by onlookers over half a mile away beyond the police perimeter.

Ironically, this exact type of disaster could be prevented by pipelines such as the Keystone XL, which would eliminate expensive shipping costs and the risk of accidents, spills, and fireballs the size of a small town.
