There were binoculars available to the lookouts on the Titanic but they were locked in a cabinet and the key was not to be found.

Leaving a gate open, also happen during the war of 1812, when a sentry at Fort Niagara left the gate open and unguarded, the British Forces walk right in and seized the fort. To this vey day the staff at Fort George on the Canadian side of the Niagara River send a note on the anniversary of the event, to Fort Niagara on the US side of the River, reminding them to leave the door open 😂

I call these oops stories. We're all human & therefore we all make mistakes. Unfortunately some of them have deadly consequences.

JK Rowlings Harry Potter series was turned down by 12 different companies who didn't believe that people would buy the books. What a huge mistake, her publishers made millions from those works.

Peter Bergman, the key was with a crew member who was relieved by the watch on duty during the sinking!

I believe the Ottomans were using heavy artillery to batter down the walls of Constantinople, so it was simply a matter of time, as the Byzantines were heavily outnumbered and no help was coming. I, also, believe that the defenses of the city had been allowed to fall into disrepair so it wasn't as tough a nut to crack, as it had once been.

As for the titanic the mistake started whilst being built by using poor quality materials and not properly fixing a fire that broke on the flank where the ship hit the iceberg as read in a report

♥️💚The Leaning Tower of Pisa in Tuscany, Italy. I was there before back 1978 and still I love it. So many great memories. Just like a dream especially when I remembered standing in front of this building touching and wandering around.☺️ Mistake or not, it made a beauty of history!!💝👌🏼
