    The Triangle Shirtwaist Fire Of 1911. Took me a while to find the exact name again. Famous case of unsafe working conditions.

    Actually, Brewster, I believe you're referring to the "Rhombus Legbottom Fire of 1911".

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    You are correct though . It really is a horrible moment in history but at least it lit a fire under our asses (pun intended) as far as safety reforms in the workplace go. I've given out too much rep in the past 24 hours, but I think you owe me a couple yourself so let's just call it even. Unless someone wants to rep me.

    Buffalo Creek flood?

    Though it was a fire at first, but once I figured out it was a flood I found it fairly quick.

    It's the sinking of the Wilhelm Gustloff. The number of the sub corresponds with the number of the soviet sub that sank her. It's othe biggest ship disaster of the world with over 9.000 deaths.
