    I would expect a gas explosion to have more burned things or scorch marks or something that looks like smoke damage from a fire afterward. This almost looks like a wrecking ball hit it.

    • Bert says:

      The way I understand it, gas explosions are “clean”. They do not cause fires because all the volatile fuel is ignited in a (split) second. The gas expands, exploding the place, but no fuel remains after the initial explosion.

    In US such things are attributed to Al-Quaeda directly by FOX kNews.

    In Russia what ORT actually saying ?

  6. a pedant says:

    Russia’s area is 17 million sq. kms
    World’s land area is 149 million sq. kms

    149/17 = 8.76

    USSR’s land area was 22.4 million sq. kms

    149/22.4 = 6.65

    This blog’s title is “just because something cool happens daily on 1/6 of the Earth surface”

    Is the author saying 1/6 of the Earth’s surface out of force of habit or is a discrete Soviet revanchist message hidden in this?

    Any chance of a correction to “just because something cool happens daily on 1/8 of the Earth surface”?

    • Premas says:

      In “About” it says – “English Russia is a daily entertaiment blog devoted to the events happening in Russian speaking countries, such as Russia (Russian Federation), Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Kazakhstan, etc.”

      So this is about former USSR. Based on your sq. km figures and if one wants more precision then he would write 1/6.65 (although it looks a bit weird). Unless we start talking about what “Russian speaking countries” stands for (e.g. would Turkmenistan or Armenia qualify for the title?). In any case your 1/8 doesn’t look correct given the “About” entry.

      • Anna says:

        But earth surface is mostly covered by ocean, so Russia cannot be 1/6…

        • Bullwinkle says:

          You are correct because 2/3 of the earth’s surface is water.

        • Premas says:

          Right. From whatever angle we look at it, the title statement needs serious rework to be scientifically correct…

        • Vernadotte says:

          The Ocean rcegions are not part of the Earth’s Surfae, for two reasons.

          1. In the Ocean, the surface is made of water, not earth.
          2. In the Ocean. the earth is in the depths and not in the surface.

          As such, the ocean does not qualify as “earth’s surface,” so the statement is perfectly valid.

    If that apartment is in Moscow it will still sell for half a million dollars… as is.

    If it’s in St. Petersburg it will be slightly less… maybe around $300,000

    • Texas1 says:

      It could cost you that much in any major city. Actually, almost any city. You can find 1-milion USD apartments in Fort Worth, Texas that were struck by a tornado.

  8. XENIA says:

    WHY IS RUSSIAN APARTMENTS SO EXPENSIVE?

    SERIOUSLY?

    HOW CAN IT BE THAT MUCH?

  9. MushroomHead says:

    Maybe this wasn’t an explosion at all. Maybe it is just bad Russian construction.

  10. vasilisk says:

    By the way, the letter A, being the last letter of whatever is written on the Ambulance, suggests that it isn’t a “Скорая Помощь” but rather a “Швидка Допомога”. Hence, it’s Ukraine.

    One cubic meter of gas equals to a hundred grams of TNT.
