    when i was around 10 years old i was with my father in a small town in oklahoma called ponca city .and we heard a loud bang when we were driving down the road . we went in the supermarket a little while later this lady came in. and said the man at the gas station just got the top of his head blown off by a truck tire he was fixing

    I never knew there was that much potential energy stored up in a truck tyre - truly staggering numbers.
    Makes you think about being more cautious when passing a truck on the highway - a tyre letting go will take out half of your car if it doesn't get you first.
