    other cases it can turn people against their own government Here are just four examples 1 Tangshan Earthquake 1976 In 1976 Tangshan was an industrial city with a population of about one million people Early in the morning on July 27th an earthquake struck that lasted for twenty three seconds measuring between seven point eight and eight point two on the Richter scale Similarly strong aftershock occurred seventeen hours later The event is widely recognized as the largest earthquake in the past one hundred years which is really saying something when you consider how long a time span that really is At the time the city was built Tangshan was thought to be at a low risk for earthquakes so the buildings were constructed without such disasters in mind The death toll ranges from two hundred thousand to six hundred thousand with such a wide difference because the political climate at the time prevented the reporting of accurate statistics and ten billion yuan in damage The government s response to the event would eventually lead to the end of the Cultural Revolution in China denying UN aid in favor of self reliance while greatly under reporting the severity of the quake Meanwhile the Gang of Four a group of communist leaders trying to seize power tried to use the earthquake as a tool against political opponent Deng Xiaoping Deng at the time was accused of being a rightist and favoring capitalism over communism becoming a target for the Gang of Four s witch hunt within their own party Each member had been quoted saying that Deng either sabotaged the relief efforts or was more dangerous than the earthquake because he directly impacted more people essentially the entire population Chairman Mao s successor Hua Geofeng staged a coup against the Gang of Four having them quietly arrested tried and imprisoned effectively ending the Cultural Revolution The Earthquake in Tangshan was high point of political unrest during the time 2 Bhola Cyclone 1970 The Bhola Cyclone is the deadliest cyclone in recorded history and struck East Pakistan and West Bangal with a force comparable to a Category 3 hurricane Making landfall on November 12th with winds as strong as one hundred and fifteen miles per hour the cyclone wiped out entire shore villages and killed up to five hundred thousand people by most estimates When it came time for the Pakistani government to begin relief efforts things went wrong almost immediately Supplies were insufficient from the start with many delays for when supplies would be sent and disbursed Relief organizations began operating independently of the government out of frustration and while government leaders reported that everything was going smoothly newspapers regularly ran stories and photos of survivors struggling to get shelter and supplies well into January But perhaps the biggest mistake was president Yahya Khan s insistence that the general elections still take place that December without delay The Awami League won in a landslide victory primarily because of the previous government

  • 10 Families Who Killed Together - Weird Worm
    William Because of their constant habit of remaining together the pair was given the witty nicknames of Big Harpe William and Little Harpe John The Harpes not exactly men given to more empathic endeavors left home just out of their teens to become slavers or overseers in Virginia The American Revolution presented them with better opportunities as Troy outlaws where they learned such useful skills as pillaging livestock burning crops and raping young farm girls There was a downside to their new lifestyle namely a country side from North Carolina to Kentucky who knew them and wanted to see them both dangle at the end of twin ropes The men took up with at least three women and produce many children who traveled with them This disagreeable family took up a farm in Beaver Creek late in the 1790 s but apparently not in an effort to change their wild ways In 1798 the other villages accused them of horse stealing a very serious offense during those times The Harpe cousins managed to get away and returned in the night to extract their revenge by killing a local who they might have blamed for ratting them out The unfortunate victim was found in the river by his neighbors the next morning with his chest and belly slashed open and his body loaded down with rocks This was the Harpes trademark murder signature The Harpes continued to get away with their crimes perhaps because even the authorities were afraid of them Eventually though they began to be too blatant and reckless and a posse of angry neighbors brought the Harpes along with their three wives into seek justice It was not to be as the pair escaped and continued their ruthless ways For the remainder of the war the Harpes raped and killed with abandoned but at last without the other Tory renegades to back them up they were eventually captured by another posse who didn t bother to take them to court and wait for justice This time the angry mob took the killer cousin s heads 2 Never invite them to dinner The Borgia reign of terror started long before the Harpes but their brand of murder was at least quieter and a tad more civilized This family s trademark was poison and manipulation while the motive was always the same power The Borgia s lived the Machiavellian life style of political scheming and sexual maneuvering as they rose in power through the Renaissance Papacy Father Rodrigo who later became Pope Alexander VI his sons Cesare Giovanni and Gioffree were ruthless but it is Lucrezia Borgia who is the most famous name among them No one could touch any of the family during their lifetimes even though it was widely rumored that Lucrezia wore a hollow ring in which she kept poison to dispatch those who stood in her family s way 3 Hang em high and keep it in the family Not everyone who kills breaks the law

  • The World’s 10 Most Weirdly Exclusive Clubs - Weird Worm
    clubs have one thing in common there is absolutely no way you are getting in 1 Disney s Club 33 This is an uber exclusive and expensive club that lets you eat in a semi secret dining room in New Orleans Square It is the only place in Disneyland that serves alcohol You also get to ride in a special train car called the Lilly Belle That s pretty much it Despite these less than awe inspiring perks rumor has it that it costs 10 000 for an individual membership and that doesn t even include the yearly fees of a couple thousand dollars But if you are a huge fan of the Mouse and don t think you can afford to join just yet don t worry As of 2007 the waiting list to join was 14 years shortly after that they stopped taking inquiries altogether Link 2 The Beefsteak Club Also known as the Sublime Society of Beefsteak incarnations of this British club go back at least 300 years Only 24 members are allowed to join at any time even the Prince of Wales the future George IV had to wait until someone died to become a member Of all British organizations perhaps only the Order of the Garter is more exclusive but it is also less insane That s because as the name suggests the Beefsteak Club is a club devoted exclusively to how awesome steak is The members get together and eat steak talk about how awesome steak is sing a song about steak and even wear a funny outfit including a badge proclaiming Beef and Liberty Link 3 The Bilderberg Club While they call themselves a club this group of about 130 individuals are accused of pulling all the strings of governments around the world Important members of the financial political and media from North America and Europe started meeting unofficially in 1954 Now they meet once a year in great secrecy and under heavy guard No members of the press are allowed in and all conversations are completely off the record Of course with this much secrecy involving powerful people conspiracy theorists go mad Link 4 The Giga Society There are 6 members Six Membership is not limited by money background or a cap on the number of members allowed in Yet as of right now there are six members two in the United States and four in Europe Why so few It might have something to do with the fact that you have to be smarter than 999999999 of the population to join According to their own web site this means in theory one in a billion individuals can qualify To do so you have to score more than a 195 on one of their accepted IQ tests which frankly sounds pretty hard to do Link 5 The Woodcock Club Currently there are 1 410 members worldwide In order to join the Shooting Times Woodcock club you must achieve a right and left
