And, boy, what a rage it created when Orson Welles admitted to the fabrication at the end of the broadcast.

I need sleep.

I read that as "what a rage it created when Orson Welles admitted to the fabrication at the end of the holocaust".

In 1937, the cost of airfare on the Hindenburg was $450 one-way. Adjusted for inflation, the price of such a ticket today would be $7,168.50

What kind of idiot charges a certain price for a ticket before inflating the blimp, then has to go back and say, "Uh... We need another $7,000 because we had to inflate the blimp." No wonder we don't see blimps in use today. Stupid business model!

This event was psychologically devastating to many Americans because they were able to see it occur right before their eyes in newsreels, and there's no denying that it is a very theatrical visual. My grandfather spoke of it often: although he didn't personally witness it, seeing it in the newsreels and hearing the desperation in the reporter's voice had a huge impact on him.

Just lovely. Now that all of the Titanic passengers are dead one way or another, we're now gonna hound the Hindenburg passengers to their dying day too.

Brace yourselves, passengers of the Andrea Doria all the way up to Costa Concordia.

The Hindenburg, traveling at a cruising speed of 76 miles per hour, made the trip between Frankfurt, Germany, and Lakehurst in about 2½ days.

and it didn't fly at tremendous altitude. that must have felt like 60 hours of slowly crashing into the ocean.

Bruno Agnoli died at the age of 90 in 2001, but Marena Agnoli, who would not reveal her age, said her father often spoke of the Hindenburg disaster when she was growing up.

Seriously?
You're probably about 75 or 80. We can do the math. It's no big secret, you vain old slut.

According to TFA, there is only one living Hindenberg passenger, Werner G. Doehner, who was 8 years old when he escaped with his mother and brother but lost his father and sister. He lives in Parachute, Colorado.

were you living in New Hampshire ... then to South Carolina and Oklahoma and Arizona and North Dakota and New Mexico, and moved to California and Texas and New York. And we're going to South Dakota and Oregon and Washington and Michigan. And then we're going to Washington, D.C. To take back you grandma's House. Yeeeeeeeeeeeee-ahhhhh!

So true. The US Navy Zeppelin Akron had gone down off the New Jersey a few years earlier with greater loss of life. But since that happened in severe turbulence without a film crew nearby, it's all but forgotton.

I wondered that myself. Merriam-Webster: "the quality or state of being human". How exactly does that describe the scene unfolding before you?? Very odd word choice.

Took me about 4 reads to get your witty little quip. Surprised I had the patience to nut it out.

// thought it had something to do with a one-way ticket, and you were sayin' they deflate it at the half way mark before your allowed to buy a return ticket the fah?
