Voiceofreason01: Am I missing something or is it literally just a list with almost no details about what happened or the significance of these disasters. Like the Triangle Shirtwaist factory fire where management had locked all the doors to the building, greatly contributing to the death toll and the disaster led to improved safety standards and unionization of the industry./even Cracked articles aren't this lazy, wtf

Rapmaster2000: The Idaho SL-1 reactor accident is a tiny one, but it sounds like the preamble to a horror movie.The three men were killed as they moved fuel rods in a "routine" preparation for the reactor start-up. One technician was blown to the ceiling of the containment dome and impaled on a control rod. His body remained there until it was taken down six days later. The men were so heavily exposed to radiation that their hands had to be buried separately with other radioactive waste, and their bodies were interred in lead coffins."
