Up, Up, and Away!

This video is hard to believe.  Hard to believe it’s not something from a movie, it’s too perfect.  But here it is in all it’s glory:

In case you can’t figure out what’s going on here’s the gist, a truck carrying a suicide bomber was traveling along a highway when it hit an IED in the road.  The truck was hurled into the air some 100 feet or so.  Then, due to forces inside the truck, the bomb went off.  It was timed perfectly so that it went of right at the apex of the truck’s launch.  There’s probably a reason for that – when gravity took a hold on the truck, the bomb hit something that caused it to explode.

Still, had there not been a video of this, you never would have believed that it happened in real life.
