Don't you think it's just the instant 24/7 reporting we've got these days with social media and the like?
That, and the media in general focusing on specific issues. Remember a few years ago everyone was being bitten by pitbulls in the UK until the papers got bored with the story.
Dog attack rates are around the same these days, just it ain't reported anymore.

At last, someone asked the question. I was thinking of starting a thread like this but have been too tired recently to even put thought into word.

Thank you Charlie, could be interesting.

You could also include the aircrash on the A27 but that's kinda different due to the circumstances.

It is well and entirely good that I am separated from reality by my meatspacesuit. Someone stick a fork in me, I am almost done!

That's what I think.

But others have been speculating so much in each new thread that I thought I'd give them a thread of their own to discuss it and break down what they believe to have happened.

Stranger things have happened.

Good move man, and to be fair I wouldn't be here if I didn't have a small roll of tinfoil in my bag at all times.

Interesting to see what others think, although Twitter is the best source as I see things these days, search #explosion and you'll find one every day somewhere.

Accidents, rods of God, terrorism? Don't know. I think for me as this problem keeps popping up I will be interested in the proposed "solutions". That to me always seems to be more telling.

Statistics haven't met there explosion quotas, perhaps it would be strange if there weren't so many explosions.

They seem to be just random negligence but if there are components linked in each explosion then we have a conspiracy theory...boom.

lets find a way to connect them all together, like a.. like a... coinc.. conspiracy of some sort.

The Tianjin and Thailand explosion videos and pictures look completely fake imho.

shoddy, lowcost, tightass, maintenance spending, is my best guess. this is what happens when you try and cut costs on safety....big business, and these asshats that graduated from business schools, don't give a damn what the engineers that have the experience and expertise have to say....

The Tianjin explosion was massive, i belive because of the size we are all now looking out for more, had this explosion not happened the other explosions (apart from the bomb) wouldnt have gained as much intrest. its like the pitball story as mentioned above.

Thailand and Japan were explosive devices. Thailand was a bomber on a motorcycle and Japan appears to be an extremist attack using rockets.

Same with meteors, only 20 odd years ago none of us would have known about them striking the Earth if they weren't in our immediate limited regional news media outlets.
I keep an open mind though, but my gut instinct is just 24/7 international news reporting and social media.

posted on Aug, 23 2015 @ 02:22 PM
They're not all the same type of explosions, which leads me to think that there is nothing in it, and just as grainofsand suggests, it's probably 24/7 rolling news and social media. We live in such a different world from as little as 10 years ago.

Has there been any further news on the explosion in China and what caused it?

The bomber in Bangkok is still on the run, but no further news on any arrests.

I haven't heard about the Japan explosion until reading this thread.

Terror is for the sake of terror. What good is terror if it is not plastered across MSM outlets? The lack of real terror can be made up for in plastering unrelated events across MSM outlets. The instant ability to boost ratings when there are no stories, is a boon for MSM.

Things explode every day.

I'm leaning towards high powered microwave weapons...silent .
