Ever since I found out about this disaster, it has always been in my mind due to the horrible way to die. Massive wall of flame, no where to run.

Also, I am a disaster buff, been fanasnatic by disasters since I did a disaster project when I was 8/9 years old, so have extensive knowledge on disasters.

The good thing and bad thing about this, is everywhere I go, I am always looking for potential escape routes automactically.

That aint normal. For how long have you been like this? Do you think about death and dying often?
