But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".

OH FUCK YOU OH OH OOOOH~

So, so sad... Taiwan and Kaohsiung are such beautiful places, and the locals are super nice. It's jaw dropping unbelievable how the entire stretch or street just blew up...

RIP

feels bad man...the city is still recovering from the airplane crash last week
i think if they evacuated everyone prior to the explosions because of the gas had leaked few hours ahead...the casualties would've been worse. It happened at midnight and most were at home and the destruction only ripped through the streets.

Another dashcam video popped up:

Possibly NSFW as I'm not sure if the people seen made it out alive, I hope those firefighters and others were okay...
