The US Department of Defense (DoD) first published a list of nuclear weapon accidents in 1968 which detailed 13 serious nuclear weapon accidents between 1950-1968. An updated list released in 1980 catalogued 32 accidents. At the same time, documents released by the Navy under the Freedom of Information Act cited 381 nuclear weapon incidents between 1965 and 1977.

That would be amazing enough, but the truth is, her Father, King James V, died in 1542, just six days after she was born, making her Queen at the age of one week.

Though her uncle, Henry VIII, tried to gain control of her throne, Mary retained her rule until 1567. At that time, she fled her homeland following a rebellion and was beheaded in England in 1587.

I was all around these today, but added to some names (Red Shirt Brigade--which turns out to be a rock group--instead of Red Brigade), got the wrong first name on one (Barbara instead of Catherine), etc. I knew #4 was Scotland but said Ireland. So all I knew for sure were #s 1, 5, 7, and T or C.
