    The Deepwater Horizon oil spill was the biggest to stick out in my mind, as it is the worst environmental disaster the US has had up until this point.
    So now they are just dirt-covered English people in fur pelts with credit cards.

    Yeah, the two big ones for me are the oil spill and the Haitian disaster. Both very sad and scary.
