If you like disasters the way *I* like disasters...

In the fourth grade I did a class report on the sinking of the Titanic. In eighth grade I did a middle school-wide report on the destruction of Pompeii. I've always been a bit of an odd duck.

Fortunately other people with way more talent than me are also odd ducks, and back in 2009 this time-lapse animation of Pompeii's final day was created for the Melbourne Museum:

Now there's also an animation of the Titanic sinking, and this one is not time-lapse, it's all 2 hours and forty minutes of watery terror.

In both of these videos, there are sound effects but no people, which gives them a really eerie feel.
