At least 7 people were injured in an apartment complex explosion in Lubbock, TX the other day, while there is no official word on how serious the injuries were, we know that at this time there are 7 people in area hospitals undergoing treatment.

I guess the official word on what caused the explosion was a gas pipe leak, but it's much more fun to pretend some meth-head was running a meth-lab and that's what caused the explosion.  But alas, I can only pretend at this time.  Stupid meth-heads, keep your teeth and loose the crank!

Anyways pretend time is over, the American Red Cross is reacting to the explosion and sending a team of the finest volunteers to help aide in any way possible.
