This is a great idea!

Naval Aviation News, a magazine published by the USN for its aviation
people, ran a regular column called "Grandpa Pettibone" where
aviation accidents were analyzed by humorous Yosemite Sam-like
person. "Leapin' horn toads, he should have checked his fuel!" The
RAF air safety bulletin Tee Emm awarded people the MHDOIF, or "The
Most Highly Derogatory Order of the Immovable Finger," in WW2. "He
had set his compass on the reciprocal. He landed out of fuel.
Thinking he was in occupied Europe, he set his Spitfire ablaze and
went to surrender at the 'Pig and Lion' pub."

They were fun and informative.

As a 1960's reader of Accidents...., I think a chemistry counterpart
is a great idea.  -- R. Burger

A splendid idea. It should be approved in SF.

What a great idea - get them while they are young! Of course it would
probably have to be online to have any impact these days.
