Re: Major chemical explosion in Waco...

It's just statistical clustering. We find it odd because our brains are wired to see patterns. We often see patterns where, in reality, there are just coincidences.

Not to say there's never a genuine, deliberate pattern, but humans have a tendency to jump to conclusions because we so readily sense patterns everywhere.
