Forget about Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney — the most explosive contest this week appears to be between a Russian power station and the survival of all of humanity. Conspiracy theorists have been debating this YouTube video for days, arguing that what was spotted outside the St. Petersburg facility could mean anything from a nuclear bomb going off to an alien attack.
Just a cursory glance over the YouTube comments yields several possible explanations, none of which have satisfied the paranoia community:
-Arc discharge at the time of high-pressure interception of a substation.
We’re not sure what that last one even means, but if you can explain it or the explosion itself, please do let us know in the comments. (Story via HuffPo Weird News.)
