The 1919 Boston Molasses Disaster

I’ve mentioned this numerous times at lunch, but I always forget to check Wikipedia afterward to get my facts straight. Tonight, I stumbled on it while doing research for a question about using turbinado sugar in iced coffee.

Anyway, the Boston Molasses Disaster was real, and it really killed 21 people. See for yourself. (Eat it, Blake.)
