Yeah, I get a kick out of Clancy Brown. He has done so many terrific roles. Hadn’t seen DeZarn in a while. What a face!

Btw, discovered Buster Scruggs is available on Netflix.

Thanks for your compassion. At the time I looked into pressing charges against the fellow. City by-law limits to a $1000 fine for abusing pets. I would have to prove beyond doubt he was the perpetrator of my cat’s demise and then throw a civil suit to cover my veterinary costs ($940). I had pictures of the said dish of food and the vet’s analysis, but this could be counterclaimed as fabrication.
People of such character eventually get back at them. I carried a deep grudge for many years, but fate would have cast its destiny.

On another note, glad to see some have a darker side of humour (xevious).

Does my posted video on ‘pest control’ show?

I could just picture the dbag getting smooshed like in a car2n. LOL

I was debating whether/not to make a catio. I do have a patio, but open Fe railings and brick steps going down, so I’d have to line the railings at least with chicken-wire, and they can jump up, so that means poles and more chicken-wire, I imagine.

I’d never leave ‘em out there unattended, so as long as the CW would slow ‘em down, I could still grab either one if he wanted to make a break for it.

This way, they could enjoy The Great Outdoors, at least somewhat, and I’d not have to worry about them picking up fleas, ticks, etc., from elsewhere.

Douche guy at the end of the alley built a 6’ solid wood fence cause he didn’t like the strays furrowing in his flower bed. Fool; they have claws and in a whoosh, up they go. But he’s encroached within a wall. And he’s better off as such.

Chicken wire ain’t pretty, and they may get their paws caught. Had mine all tangled up in the drapes once, just stood there waiting that I rescue her. Never tried that acrobatic stunt again. Some people have somehow gotten them on a lead. Never worked with me. Wonder if those high-pitched emitters, the ones to train off-limits areas, work?

PS: My stubby fellow is quite laid back and me living on the ground floor, just wanders to the end of the driveway. Never gets in any fights with the territorial strays, and doesn’t care for the bed (which is good – no bugs or fleas). Always within sight, ventures a bit in the front when I’m taking my morning brew. Never a nuisance but a good companion on those cold dark winter evenings. Cuddles me as I’m watching Youtube.

There was a very well off couple in town.
She loved cats. He hated them and refused to have the in the house.

So she took her own money. Bought the adjoining lot.
Then built a 4000? Sq. Ft. Two story house complete with cat runs and housekeeper cat companion. She had visiting rights. He didn’t.

Left her inheritance to a trust. Guess who didn’t get named.
All the Best,
Jeff

All our cats were indoor-outdoor. We don’t have houses or traffic nearby so it never was a problem. Now there are predatory birds snatching up small pets. Eagles and hawks hunting daily. Lost 2 cats.

Had a couple of crows with one offspring in the neighbourhood for a number of years. Plucked every little critter – sparrows, squirrels, and small cats. I inquired about controlling them, like re-locating. Ministry said they stay, part of the eco-system. Been a couple of years and don’t see nor heard them. The nest isn’t taken care and deteriorating. Not complaining. Never thought crows are so predatory. One swooped down from behind and clawed my cap. I’m sure he/she was intimating – territorial.

Wow, you weren’t kidding about it being dark. Just watched 1st half of it. Seriously visceral quality about it. I imagine the west was at least this brutal, if not worse. Amazing cinematography!

Did you ever see the PBS Nature program on crows, where they show how they’ve got incredible social communication? They can pass down experiences. A flock had been exposed to a taunting human with a certain grotesque mask. Later, when the crows had offspring, and were alone from those who’d seen the masked human, they reacted the same way upon seeing him. Never had seen him before. Inexplicable, how the parents could’ve communicated it.

Many eco-friendly channels where ravens and other similar birds have developed cognitive and deductive abilities. Some go as far as making tools to trip levers. The best I saw was when a blackbird was given some bread and dumped small pieces into the pond to get fish nibbling – pecked and caught a better meal.
Last one I saw was where the zoo keeper had some crow and express its needs (food, social). It was a spontaneous behaviour, no training.

Animals in general are very social and smart. I have a herd of white tails on my property that I have been watching interact together. It’s like watching teenagers hanging with each other sometimes. One was lying down on the lawn and another came over to it and pushed him with his front foot like get up. Right now I have a recently separated from his mother small bear hanging around trying to figure life out on his own. He’ll watch me mow the lawn from the edge of the woods. It is comical watching him peer over the rock wall at me. We feed the crows food scraps and they are never far and always come quickly when the food comes out. Fox families raising their young. All very interesting to watch and all smart in their own way. We just don’t speak the same language as them.

And to think some have the “sport” of hunting.

Many years would go to a private lake and much fauna would observe me. Never had any bad encounters – question of keeping my distance. Duck family would usually make their home, only to be shot down come autumn. Imagine, it’s not as the locals need these to survive and they are quite helpless being young and never have taken to much flight.

Had a curious moose follow me on the forest edge, just shy of being seen. Heard him though, and saw the lower branches move then eye contact. She moved on.

Many other small critters but my favorite was the deer couple that came for a drink. The buck would watch over as his doe would sip, then take turns.

Small black bears would occasionally be scrounging some berries in some open space, raise on their hind legs and take a sniff of my presence. Go back to hoarding and that was it.

I’m trying to make what prompted such an incendiary calamity.

Clearly see some pressure relief valve blowing some sort of liquid. Would hydraulic fluid be so volatile and why wouldn’t the press designers release it into some containment vessel?

Man, that ended up like a blowtorch aimed right up at the ceiling.

It probably ended up like an oil-burner, ie, a fine mist of oil (hydraulic fluid) that just ignited and kept going. Hard to start up, but once heated and/or aerosolised, VWOOOSH!

Your comment on the “pest control (cockroaches)” got me digging for this vid.
I’ve worked with plastic injection presses and this isn’t one. Seems like a 1st world installation; all very clean and tidy. The fellow with the oxy-acetylene torch isn’t anywhere close enough to ignite the spray – lest I can’t see any jump to such.

Sheesh…I did not expect such a consuming fireball! Seems like it ignited on something floor-level to the back right of the machine. Kinda neat to see the rectangular flame outlines from the insulation batts after they hit the floor. Glad those two hightailed it out of there…I probably would have been standing there ready for incineration.

Amazing the security camera stayed live and in focus – a proper set-up with an independent power feed.

Had one incident with one of our presses where the nozzle blew. Heavy composite of glass fibre polyamide that overcooked and plugged it. Shot out with a very loud bang onto the bolster die plate. No harm was done but the release of a dark black sooty cloud got the shop evacuated. I was near, too close actually. Lost my hearing for the afternoon.

Operator error, was supposed to dump any residual load before lunch break.

The draw on that press is long, maybe 30 feet *. The controls on the bottom right are heaters/coolers. The overhang ducts are for fumes. Can’t see any gantry/overhead crane and can’t make what’s on the floor, coiled. I don’t think a hydraulic failure is the culprit – those are a short burst (they do make mist though).

*Edit:
Draw perhaps 5 to 6 feet. Ducts don’t seem to be directly overhead the press but rollers are in line. At second look, the press would have completed its open stroke and the pressure valve then releases.

Good save—dude went back to get his phone!

Wonder if they knew the potential effect of a fire. They seemed alert to a dangerous situation and reacted quickly.

Did it take out the whole factory?

What would they need to do with an acetylene torch around a big press—pre-heat some part or fixture?

No crane or fork lift for heavy lifting, wonder what is being pressed.

Wow! Insane. Curious—it was just posted yesterday, as an unlisted video, and comments are turned off. No explanation in the description section.

It would be interesting to understand the “generally expected” volatility risk of that factory. Were they dealing with volatile materials at all, or was this scenario completely unexpected? Notice how one guy goes running back to the control console to grab his phone and he briskly walks away, not running fast… until that fire rapidly expands. THEN the two guys run full speed. The heat must’ve been pretty serious. Can you imagine if one of them tried to rescue the computer at the control console? They would’ve been engulfed by the fire.

The hydraulic fluid (?) spewing out of the top of the press like that… looked like firehose volume… must’ve rapidly spread over the ceiling. It’s crazy how fast the ceiling materials caught fire and then came raining down.

However they say the fire started in the ceiling – clearly not the case.

Now I better understand the machine is an aluminium extruder; billets coming from the left and the final shape out on the right. The “coils” are the dies, the ducts for the cooling and any oils/vapours coming off. The operator was perhaps about to replace a die and had the machine open up. Something went wrong and the hydraulic pump went full flow. *
*Afterthought: hydraulic pumps deliver little flow but rather pressure – so maybe some other fluid.

My only experience with this type of machine was on a tour of Alcan in Kingston. Ontario. The billets and the end products were all on rollers and laterally to the extruder (unlike this set-up where they are in line). The billets were pre-heated with natural gas and I suppose this would have been the ignition source here.

Blowing my toot!

Looks like the extrusion dies survived the fire—not so much his lunch box and thermos bottle.

Good find. Curious... the place looks much less sooty than I would've expected... unless the aftermath shown is after a certain basic cleanup had already been performed.
