On Jan 15 1919 a tank holding up to 2,300, 000 gal of molasses rupture in Boston.

One sticky mess, be sure.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

I had no clue about this event. Maybe this is what really started the World Series curse on the Red Sox since this occurred one year after their last WS win for the entire 20th century??? Hmm....
