The witch hunt after the 1755 Lisbon All Saints Day earthquake resulted in the death of 14 women whose décolletage was determined to be the cause of the earthquake and subsequent tsunami.
It’s Boobquake day!

And, no, you’re still not worthy.
Ebook update. The Second Deluge by Garrett P. Serviss – This book, published in 1912, shares a basic plot with the film 2012 (cue theramin coinkydink music); astronomical phenomenon cause global catastrophe, boats are built to save humanity, and the Eiffel Tower is destroyed dramatically. Sadly, that hot chick from Star Trek doesn’t make an appearance in the book, making the movie the superior work.
Yes, I did see 2012, and I’m really sorry I didn’t wait until it was on basic cable.
"And then good-by to the human race…unless…unless…I, Cosmo Versál, inspired by science, can save a remnant to repeople the planet after the catastrophe."
The US Civil war wasn’t about slavery. There were complex political, economic, and social differences between the North and South.
Political differences: In most Southern states it was legal to own slaves, in most Northern states it was not.
Economic differences: The South’s was based on large slave-powered plantations, the North’s on factories.
Social differences: In the South there was more support for slavery than in the North.
See? Nothing to do with it at all.
So we should, obviously, honor these visionaries who attempted to overthrow the lawful government of the USA.
Let me know if I’m not being sarcastic enough.
