    Per Wiki An ANFO explosive is 94% AN and 6% FO, do it doesn't take much fuel to get a bang.
    Doing a little more reading, McVeigh used racing fuel instead of fuel oil.

    This is a handy dandy primer on using AN for blasting rocks:

    It's kinda funny how hard it is for some to put down the tinfoil and maybe just believe the government of a third wor...sorry sorry "developing nation" was grossly incompetent.

    Eh, just sit back and wait for "cui bono"; no need to assume sheer happenstance in the most politically volatile region of the planet when the absence of some nefarious plot would be abnormal. This might be another case of not knowing what was going on until someday you can look back and say "Oooh, so that's what those guys was up to!"

    Seems like the most fun way to dig a pond.

    Seems to me that TP&W was using sections of rain gutter down spout in deep augured holes, filled it with fertilizer and then poured on the fuel. Suppose the downwards progression would be beneficial to making a hole.

    Lebanon's PM to announce the resignation of his government

    Not surprising. He had previously been calling for early elections, but apparently has decided it is best to get out now.
