There was no accident, they definitely did it intentionally, for profit. Bayer doesn't care, and why should they? They didn't really get punished in any serious way, unfortunately

I was also reading they were doing simulated live-fire exercises, with automatic gunfight noises. Perhaps to train the populace to become accustomed to these noises as well... I also heard about these booms and gun fight noises coming from Houston in addition to LA.

Imo the best way to try out new small CSS changes is to use your browser's "inspect" feature (on chrome it's right-click, inspect) and it opens up all the CSS in an panel on the right.
