History Fact

The Government Literally Poisoned Alcohol During Prohibition

During Prohibition in the United States, the U.S. government literally poisoned alcohol. When people continued to consume alcohol despite its banning, law officials got frustrated and decided to try a different kind of deterrent—death. They ordered the poisoning of industrial alcohols manufactured in the U.S., which were products regularly stolen bootleggers. By the end of Prohibition in 1933, the federal poisoning program is estimated to have killed at least 10,000 people.

Movie/TV Trivia

Movie/TV Quote

"Ye best start believin' in ghost stories, Miss Turner. Yer in one."


Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)


There's one character in the entire Pirates of the Caribbean franchise who was appropriately pirate-y, and it was Captain Barbossa, played with signature flair by the scenery-devouring Geoffrey Rush. He's a reminder that, before we all started to hate them, these movies used to be fantastic, and nothing comes close to the zombie-pirate terror of The Curse of the Black Pearl. Things go from regular period piece to nearly a horror movie when Elizabeth Turner is exposed to the reality of the doomed sailors onboard the Black Pearl: when the moon hits their eyes like a big pizza pie that's when their skin dissolves into shreds of decaying flesh and tendons and not even bullets can kill them. Barbossa growls this iconic line at Liz before she flees into the belly of the ship, and then he slams the door shut and lets out a crunchy belly laugh that sounds like a bunch of bones being scraped together. Unforgettable.
