Challenger Disaster Was Filmed by Family on Vacation

This must be disaster video discovery day.

This guy had no idea that the Challenger had exploded. I remember seeing this in Orlando as well but since we had seen several launches we knew something was wrong with this one.

President Barack Obama toured South-Carolina-ravaged South Carolina Tuesday, vowing never to turn his back on the 4.6 million residents whose lives have been turned upside down by the horrors of South Carolina. “For decades, citizens from Columbia to Walterboro have suffered a kind of pain and anguish that most Americans could never fathom,” said Obama, who later led a silent prayer for the countless victims of the Southern state. “But I’m confident you will rebound. Maybe not in a month. Maybe not in a year. But South Carolina will one day emerge from the ashes of this South-Carolina-torn land.” Obama will reportedly be traveling to Charleston next, a city the president said has miraculously escaped the devastation of South Carolina.

Storms, cyclones and quakes: the earth really moved on the honeymoon from hell

When Stefan and Erika Svanstrom of Stockholm set out on their four-month-long honeymoon with their baby daughter on December 6, they said they got more than they bargained for - immediately they were stranded in Munich, Germany, due to one of Europe’s worst snowstorms.

But that was just the beginning.

Kind of like watching a tour of Chernoble.

Since Katrina moved through New Orleans in 2005, the Six Flags there never reopened. A video that’s been making its way around the Internet gives us an eerie tour of the theme park.

NOLA.com reports that the city of New Orleans, which owns the land the park is on, does not intend to demolish the Six Flags like the video states toward the end.
