“The fine line between roaring with laughter and crying because it's a disaster is a very, very fine line. You see a chap slip on a banana skin in the street and you roar with laughter when he falls slap on his backside. If in doing so you suddenly see he's broken a leg, you very quickly stop laughing and it's not a joke anymore.” Roald Dahl Talking about disasters, according to historians, April 14th is the most infamous of them all. From man-made to natural, the amount of disasters this very day has spawned, makes it the most infamous date in history. From the sinking of the Titanic, to the assassination of the United States President Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth, to the Black Sunday, the Sydney hailstorm, the Yushu, China earthquake, and the Bangladesh tornado that have collectively killed thousands of people and caused serious damages. These disasters have sent ripples of fear through these countries, cementing a spot in the history books because of the panic it spread and the depth of the wounds it formed amongst millions of people.
