On October 16th 1814 in London, England, the explosion of a 22 foot high vat of beer and the subsequent destruction of anotehr vat created a flood of beer that knocked down a brewery wall and drowned at least 12 people. The bodies of the victims were displayed in a nearby house to the site of the tragedy. So many people came to view the dead that teh floor gave way leading to further deaths. Between tehse two incidents, and some deaths attributed to an alcohol coma, at least 20 people perished.

That is crazy (and funny but sad too)...I wonder if there is anything to visit in regards to that tragedy like a spot in a museum or the house or brewery involved.

lol i can't decide if people should tell that story in D.A.R.E. classes or if kids would just find it endlessly amusing.
