Sticky Situation

When 2.5 million gallons of molasses gushed out of a ruptured tank on January 15th, 1919, a 10-food wave of the goo washed down the streets of Boston at speeds exceeding 35 miles per hour. The damage: over a score of persons dead, 150 injured, and countless buildings ruined or destroyed. You can read more about this most bizarre disaster at Eric Postpischil's Molasses Disaster Page, and even see a photo here.
