Happy 97th anniversary of one of the weirdest disasters in history, the Boston Molasses Flood! A storage tank burst, releasing around 2.3 million gallons of molasses into the streets of Boston in a wave that moved at about 56 km/h. The end results were 21 dead, 150 injured, and molasses being literally everywhere for a while.
