The Supermarket: Born Out of Total Economic Collapse – Thanks, Disaster!

The Great Depression was the worst economic disaster in history. The stock market lost 377 billion dollars in today’s money, and 122 million Americans were out of work. But if it wasn’t for the Great Depression, we wouldn’t have the Supermarket. Thanks, Disaster!

    Thanks Scott, great job as usual. How about the Centrila underground coal fire? It's a underground coal mine in Centrila Pennsylvania that caught fire 50 years ago, and still burns today. The whole town had to be evacuated because of it.
