People have reported being touched directly, lights will flicker in areas of the ship with no power, and items will move around seemingly with a mind of their own. At least one story reports that people refused to work on the ship on Friday the 13th because the Sullivans were said to be more active on that day than any other. (USS The Sullivans, Buffalo Naval Yard)
The Sullivan brothers, who died together aboard the USS Juneau.

World War II History Nov 15, 1942 - Five Sullivan brothers were killed when the cruiser Juneau was sunk off Guadalcanal. They had enlisted together in Waterloo, Iowa, only eleven months before. 'The Sullivans', a destroyer, was named in their honor in April, 1943
A mother gave her 5 sons to the Navy. All sons were lost in one Battle. What great sacrifice. This mother had no regret. In fact she was still quiye proud. Because of this, we now have the "Sullivan Act". The act states that if a family has one child left-you do not have to give that child up to the military. That's how "finding Privte Ryan" came about.

Stiai ca primul calculator electronic-digital a fost construit in 1939, la Universitatea din Iowa, de catre profesorul John Atanasoff si studentul sau Clifford Berry? :)
1942. The Atanasoff–Berry Computer (ABC) was the first electronic digital computing device. Conceived in 1937, the machine was not programmable, being designed only to solve systems of linear equations. It was successfully tested in 1942. The ABC pioneered important elements of modern computing, including binary arithmetic and electronic switching elements, but its special-purpose nature and lack of a changeable, stored program distinguish it from modern computers.
