    OK here's one.

    This disaster is generally regarded as the biggest/worst ever accidental man made explosion. It was also the biggest ever man made explosion, accidental or intentional, prior to the atomic bomb.

    When two ships collided in Halifax Harbour, Nova Scotia during WW1?

    The meteor strike in Tunguska, Siberia, was the biggest explosion full stop (ie not man made)

    right you are, X. Here's a little summary I typed up.

    The disaster is known simply as the Halifax Explosion. In 1917, a ship laden with 2.6 million kilograms of explosives for use in World War I caught fire after a collision and exploded in Halifax Harbour.

    Approximately 2,000 people were killed, 1,600 instantly, and 9,000 people injured. The explosion completely demolished an area of Halifax approx 1.5 square kilometres. A piece of metal debris from the ship weighing over 500 kilograms (1,100 lbs) was found 2.3 miles away.

    The size of the explosion is said to be roughly equivalent to 3,000 tons of TNT.

    If you google Halifax Explosion, you will find plenty of info and pictures.

    Didn't Pategonia used to be populated by giants? Probably it was them

    I seem to remember some kind of story about some kind of white migrants of the 16th or 17th century, damned if I can remember what they were called though.

    OK, while we are waiting for the answer to the Pategonian walls, here's another one.

    There are many countries in Europe whose name ends in the letter "a". But only four of those countries don't end with the letters "ia". Name them.

    If you are really feeling ambitious, you can also name all the European countries that end in "ia".

    Andorra, Moldova, Malta and erm um well, I'm spent.
    For every story told that divides us, I believe there are a thousand untold that unite us.

    Well, God's chosen people and all. The only reason we have a retracting roof on our rugby stadium is so that God can watch us play.
