Big explosion in Woy Woy?

Just curious if anyone else in the area has any clue DAFUQ that big bang about 10 minutes ago was?

Think a couple of kilos of low velocity mining explosives or something.

Internet's been acting funky ever since, so curious if anyone lives down the street from a now-burning gas main or something?

Good lols.

I know you talked aliens but i think zombies are more likely and im concerned about my chances. I live in densly packed North Lakes in a house with lots of big ass windows so not only is my house not very secure, but my chances of escaping arent too good - only have a motorbike and a s***** hatchback. Plus my cardio endurance is s*** so i could probably only outrun a zombie for a few hundred metres before collapsing.

Depends on the type. IIRC you have slow moving like shaun of the dead or fast moving like dawn of the dead or zombie land.

If your net is cable and your having issues, the explosion might have been a power transformer (they make a surprisingly big bang).

And cable requires power injection along the way to allow return path signals, funky power funky cable internet.

Nah, DSL2. I think the internet was just a coincidence. As for a transformer, dunno. My cabin shook and the sound came from atleast 2km away, my stepdad's house about another 3km away from me shook too and they're not even on a concrete slab.

Never seen one blow, but I don't know that there'd be that much of a shockwave.

TBH, I'd be happy for them to do it. Place is full of animals, zombies, drugged up crazies and then the rest of us that dare not go outside.

Tranformers exploding do make a hell of a bang, however you wouldn't feel a shockwave from that distance tho unless it was Megatron himself exploding...

You have your answer

Somebody was naughty and went sonic at low level.

I think it's safe to say that most of you would never have heard a sonic boom at low level.
Cause I'm aging like a fine wine, I have :)

Jets in the 70's used to break sound barriers on takeoff or very shortly thereafter as the sound restrictions in place now are much more strict than they were then.
