HMS Hood Explosion 1941 The battlecruiser HMS Hood was the pride of the British navy between the two world wars. It was actually obsolete by the time the Second World War started, but it was urgently needed despite its shortcomings. On May 24, 1941, in the Battle of the Denmark Strait, the Hood was engaged in an 11-minute skirmish with the German warships Prinz Eugen and Bismarck. A single 1700-pound armor-piercing shell from the Bismarck ripped into the Hood causing a giant fireball and a subsequent massive explosion. The Hood split into two sections and sank in just three minutes. About 150 minutes later, only three surviving British sailors from the Hood's crew of 1,415 were plucked from the cold Atlantic by the destroyer Electra: Ted Briggs, Robert Tilburn, and William Dundas. None was older than 20. The sinking of the Hood and the loss of more than 99.7 percent of its crew stunned the British public. The three survivors became reluctant celebrities and were always emotional when pressed to talk about that day in 1941. Dundas died in an automobile accident in 1965. Tilburn died in 1995. Briggs, the youngest of the three, died in 2008 at the age of 85. Briggs participated in a 2001 ceremony in which a memorial plaque was laid on the Hood's wreckage and debris field.

San Diego Tank Rampage - 1995 On May 17, 1995, residents of San Diego, CA had their lives and property imperiled by an M-60 Patton tank! The armored vehicle had been stolen from a military base by Shawn Timothy Nelson, a 35-year-old former veteran who was known to have mental stability issues. As this Discovery Network feature shows, for a while law enforcement had absolutely no way to stop the devastating rampage--until Nelson inadvertently disabled the tank himself on a concrete highway median. Police theorize Nelson was on his way to create havoc at a local hospital that he had recently unsuccessfully sued for malpractice.

1916 Booby Quarter By the 1910s the Art Nouveau movement was influencing the designs of American coinage. In 1916 designer Hermon McNeil created what he thought was an attractive portrait of Lady Liberty for the new silver 25-cent piece. No red flags were raised as the design received official approval for mintage in late 1916 for distribution in January 1917. Instead of winning applause, however, the coin caused outrage because the Standing Liberty figure (as it is known to collectors) has her right breast exposed. Moralists decried the image as obscene and decadent. The public's response was so swift and negative that the Treasury Department modified the die for future strikes to cover the exposed breast with armor--even doing so without the official approval of Congress. Furthermore, the federal government did its best to recall the original allotment of 52,000 coins. That was easier said than done. First, any new coin is largely hoarded by collectors for its novelty. Second, the small mintage of these coins enhanced their desirability among collectors. Third, the infamy attached to this coin made it even more collectible than usual. Therefore most of the 1916 "booby quarters" did not stay in circulation very long before they were stashed away by average citizens as curiosity pieces (and perhaps erotic souvenirs). According to the Treasury Department, however, the public's moral outrage had nothing to do with the more modest revised design. It was supposedly symbolic. With war clouds looming, it was thought that Lady Liberty should be shown as fully protected by armor rather than being seen as partially exposed and vulnerable.
