Honda Point disaster...Naval history

The Honda Point disaster was the largest peacetime loss of U.S. Navy ships. On the evening of September 8, 1923, seven destroyers, while traveling at 20 knots (37 km/h), ran aground at Honda Point, a few miles from the northern side of the Santa Barbara Channel off Point Arguello on the coast in Santa Barbara County, California. Two other ships grounded, but were able to maneuver free of the rocks. Twenty-three sailors died in the disaster.

Well I had never heard of this disaster, I guess not being American. Terrible thing to happen and very interesting to watch. Has there not been a film made of this?

JJ 200 comments wont even be close to the most comments on a video even if
the same three or four people continue to keep mindlessly commenting on it.

#2 sux2bu 'if the same three or four people continue to keep mindlessly commenting on it.'

Ahh... there is the pointless dig that we've been missing. Good to see that you are staying classy Suxy! Who wouldn’t want to comment when their reward is being potentially treated to your sunny infectious disposition along with your always collegial comments, observations and opinions?

LOL #4. sux2bu . I forgot about your almost presidential level of impetuousness, impulsivity, immaturity, doggedness and of course lack of appreciation or understanding of irony. You have just become what you in fact just decried :'( Sigh.

Suxy, traffic to this site has decline in the past decade for a myriad of reasons, not least of which is people’s choices in terms of social media and places to post has increased exponentially. As a result, Snotr’s community has declined. Such is life. Tossing your pointed opinions in on occasion under the guise of a truth bomb is not helpful, collegial, or doing anything to remedy the issue that you raised in #2. There are interesting people on this site, some I disagree with on many issues, but I always try to treat them with respect and civility. I just wish you could do the same and end your disingenuousness ad hominem attacks. Try to productively contribute for once - your occasional grumpy insult schtick is getting old.

#3 Different time Suxi, different times. But thanks for pointing out a new target, 271 it is. By the way seeing as you have been gone for a while, which sites have you been boring to death and have presumably been thrown off during you absence?

#6 If you find my videos boring then stop watching them.
Even you should have been able to figure that out. 8-)
