Hindenburg Disaster

Hindenburg Disaster

The Hindenburg disaster occurred on May 6, 1937, in Manchester Township, New Jersey, United States. The German passenger airship LZ 129 Hindenburg caught fire and was destroyed during its attempt to dock with its mooring mast at Naval Air Station Lakehurst. On board were 97 people; there were 36 fatalities.
This photo is an image of the famous Hindenburg crash. The famed balloon went up for it maiden voyage to show passengers and spectators alike the potential for balloon travel when a spark ignited the hydrogen that filled the airship while it attempted to dock. In all there were 36 fatalities and injuries as well.
The disaster was the subject of newsreel coverage, photographs, and Herbert Morrison's recorded radio eyewitness reports from the landing field, which were broadcast the next day. A variety of hypotheses have been put forward for both the cause of ignition and the initial fuel for the ensuing fire. The event shattered public confidence in the giant, passenger-carrying rigid airship and marked the abrupt end of the airship era

Titanic Iceberg Facts:

Titanic Iceberg Facts: 

The iceberg thought to have been hit by Titanic, photographed the morning of 15 April 1912 by SS Prinz Adalbert's chief steward. The iceberg was reported to have a streak of red paint from a ship's hull along its waterline on one side.


19 – the number of icebergs that third class survivor Charles Dahl later claimed he had seen from lifeboat number 15, during the hours following the sinking. In an interview with the Chicago American newspaper Dahl criticized the speed at which Titanic had been traveling through the ice field, describing how Carpathia had needed to zigzag through bergs whilst collecting survivors.
11:39 pm – the time at which the iceberg Titanic struck was first spotted, too late to avoid a collision.
30 seconds – the amount of time from the first sighting of the iceberg to the impact.
50 – 100 feet – the estimated height of the iceberg above water, as recounted by Titanic survivors.
200 – 400 feet – the estimated length of the iceberg.
5 – the number of days after the sinking when Rehorek took his photograph of the iceberg.
85% – the amount of all icebergs in the North Atlantic that originate from the west coast of Greenland.
1909 – the year in which the Titanic iceberg is believed to have been ‘born’.
1 – 2 – the likely number of icebergs that the Ilulissat ice-shelf would have produced in 1909.
1 – 4% – the proportion of those icebergs that survive to reach shipping waters. They initially float north along Greenland’s west coast before beginning their southward journey past the coastlines of Baffin Island, Labrador and Newfoundland, before passing through the gulf stream into the Atlantic past. Most do not make it this far, either getting caught en route or finally melting in the warm waters of the gulf stream.

Unclogging a Blocked Toilet Trap Without a Plunger

Unclogging a Blocked Toilet Trap Without a Plunger

If you find yourself in a predicament to have a blocked toilet and no plunger nearby here’s what you need to know. Try this simple solution to unclog your toilet with dish soap, a container of hot water, a little patience and that’s it.

Stage one: Pour dishwashing soap into the toilet. Since the dish soap density (– 1.06) is great than water it will sink to the bottom of the toilet bowl.

Stage 2: Allow 15+ minutes for the soap to be absorbed into the blockage acting as a pipe lubricant. 

Pouring dish soap into toilet







Stage 3: Pour a container of really hot water into the toilet bowl making its way through the trap pushing the blockage out.

Jennifer Lawrence CBS’ 60-Minutes interview

Jennifer Lawrence gave a great interview on the 25th of February, 2018 on CBS’ 60-Minutes. For me it was very motivating.
Jennifer Lawrence has an appetite, confidence and ambition. For a decade in Hollywood she has been defying odds and breaking barriers. At 21 her four "Hunger Games" movies earned almost $3 billion.
She is a harddriven woman. If you need a lift and some motivation please checkout her CBS’ 60-Minutes interview:

“The Post” movie review

The Post is an all-star ensemble cast with Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep, as the embattled leaders of The Washington Post, lead a timely — docudrama about how the Pentagon Papers shifted American journalism's relationship to power.

There’s a clear parallel to be made to the current United States administration and its strenuous relationship with the media, which is why Spielberg and his team felt it was so necessary to move swiftly and get it to the big screen while the material is still timely. The Post is an expertly-crafted and compelling film brought to life by Steven Spielberg who did a superb job Directing the movie and his ending was perfect. It certainly was Spielberg’s triumphant ode to Journalism. Go see this movie!

The First Email, The First Tweet, And 13 Other Famous Internet Firsts

The first email was sent by Ray Tomlinson to himself in 1971. "The test messages were entirely forgettable. . . . Most likely the first message was QWERTYIOP or something similar," he said.

We can blame ARPANET for the first spam email, which was sent to 393 people on May 3, 1978.

The first domain name ever registered was Symbolics.com on March 15, 1985. Now it serves as a historic site.

The first website was dedicated to information about the World Wide Web and went live on August 6, 1991. Here's the url: http://info.cern.ch/hypertext/WWW/TheProject.html.

The first picture ever uploaded on the web was posted by Tim Burners Lee (inventor of the World Wide Web) on behalf of a comedy band called Les Horrible Cernettes.

The first AOL Instant Message was sent by Ted Leonsis to his wife on Jan. 6, 1993. It read, "Don't be scared … it is me. Love you and miss you."

His wife replied, "Wow … this is so cool!" Leonsis later became AOL's Vice Chairman.

Joe McCambley ran the first banner ad ever online. It went live in October 1994 on HotWired.com and it promoted 7 art museums, sponsored by AT&T.

The first item sold on eBay (back then it was AuctionWeb) was a broken laser pointer for $14.83 in 1995. The man who bought it told founder Pierre Omidyar he collected broken laser pointers.
