    Did Paul use Wikipedia about the 1919 Boston molasses spill? I was in Boston on a family summer road trip in 1998 & I don’t recall smelling molasses. I also have a cousin in Boston; I’ll have to ask her & her husband on FaceBook if they have instances like such.

    Several years ago, Smithsonian magazine ran an article about the Boston molasses spill. Funny, but it came up in conversation again recently during a discussion about storm surges on the east coast.

    Why not soak the hairball in molasses?

    One of my kids wrote about this in the third grade, and his paper was rejected by the idiot teacher because the assignment was to write about a real historical event.

    My third grade teacher screamed at me and poked fun to the class because I noticed that the continents looked like they fit together like puzzle pieces.

    The Boston Molasses Disaster, also known as the Great Molasses Flood and the Great Boston Molasses Tragedy, occurred on January 15, 1919, in the North End neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts in the United States. A large molasses storage tank burst, and a wave of molasses rushed through the streets at an estimated 35 mph (56 km/h), killing 21 and injuring 150. The event has entered local folklore, and some residents claim that on hot summer days, the area still smells of molasses.1That teacher should lose his/her job—-

    21 people died because of molasses? I wonder why I’ve never heard of this before.

    So….nobody likes my sticky hairball idea. OK, I understand….I’ll just be happy covering the cats with molasses, instead.

    … maybe one with a gun…? Still, not a happy day.
