    Re: The Great Boston MOLASSES FLOOD of 1919

    Let me be the FIRST to say how much I agree that this is one of the weirdest disasters of all time.

    I have the book:

    Puleo, Stephen, "Dark Tide: The Great Boston Molasses Flood of 1919"

    It made me hungry for molasses. I went out and bought a bottle of blackstrap. Try it on vanilla ice cream.

    That was a big tank but it still seems like the loss of life was excessive. Strange story; I'd never heard of it before. The learning continues.

    I cannot imagine a river of molasses traveling at 35 mph. Must have been a site to see.
