Everyone makes mistakes, but sometimes those mistakes can turn into a huge loss for you
financially speaking. When we talk about mistakes its fine if you spilled a little milk or dropped
your favorite mug, but some mistakes can cost you thousands and thousands of dollars. Keep
watching to get a glimpse at some of the most expensive mistakes in history.
Number 10. Bitcoin Mess-up
Bitcoins are in the limelight right now and everyone seems to be benefitting off from them but
there was a time when people weren’t aware of what bitcoin was or how it worked. Back then, an
IT worker in the UK, James Howells managed to mine 7,500 bitcoins. He then tried to sell
various parts of his computer but kept the hard drive with the but coins on it safe. Later on, while
cleaning, he accidentally chucked away the hard drive with the bitcoins. The value of one bitcoin
was $17,000 when he checked which means that had he kept the hard drive safe; he would be the
right full owner of 127 million dollars. James even tried to look for the hard drive and requested
the city to let him look for it in the landfill but the request was denied on the basis that searching
and mining the landfill would have a huge environmental impact on the surrounding areas. You
can’t win against the law! A simple mistake made while cleaning deprived James of being a
multi-millionaire.
Number 9. One of a Kind Guitar Damaged
Quentin Tarantino movies have always been known to keep us on the edge of our seats with tons
of characters doing their best but there was one time when one of these characters messed up big

time and ending up costing A LOT. In the Hateful Eight, Kurt Russell was playing the role of a
KG bounty hunter and had to incorporate a guitar in his role. This guitar was taken in from a
museum and was no ordinary guitar. It was from the 1870s and was said to be 145 years old.
There were 6 additional fake guitars made and replicated which would be used when Kurt will
have to hit it against a pole and destroy it. Instead, Kurt accidentally hit the 145 years old guitar
and broke it beyond repair. What's even more embarrassing is that no one bothered to inform the
museum of the issue and they had to find out about it through the media. Needless to say, the
museum won't be handing out ancient artifacts to anyone even if it is Quentin Tarantino himself.
Number 8. Walkie Talkie Building
The engineers and builders made a huge mistake while creating the 220-million-dollar
skyscraper known as walkie talkie building. The structure of the building was made in such a
way that it was curved at a certain angle and the exterior was made completely out of glass. As a
result, the building would reflect sunlight on a particular spot in a street in London at a specific
time of the day. This spot was so dangerous that anyone who would park there would return to
all the plastic of it melted and scorched. Not only that, sometimes the panels of the cars would be
disfigured as well, shopkeepers nearby had to remove their mats before they would start catching
fire. Instead of the walkie talkie, it was then called as the walkie scorchie. A lot of more money
was spent and panels were introduced into the design of the building to fix the problem
Number 7. Chernobyl
By now everyone seems to be aware of the disaster that Chernobyl was because of HBO but
what you must have missed from out from the miniseries was that being a deadly nuclear
disaster, this was also one of the costliest mistakes in all of history. The financial loss was so

huge that experts still cannot put a price on the loss that was faced. Esteem was put forward
which stated that it coasted around 200 to 400 billion dollars. What's even more agitating is that
a lot of opting was easily avoidable and could’ve been prevented. It started when a drill
simulating a power outage led to horrible ructions and a steam fire burned on for nine
consecutive days. Because of various design flaws, there was not just financial damage but the
loss of life as well. 134 workers were taken to the hospital after the incident out of which 14 died
because of the radiations.


Number 6. Fat Trains
We all have been in a place when we would try to keep the size of our garage in mind when we
are out getting a new car. Unfortunately, people at SNCF failed to keep that in mind when they
spent a staggering 15 billion dollars on their high-speed trains. The trains moved like the wind
but the problems arrived when they were supposed to be serviced at the stations. It was found
that the trains were too wide and could fit through the stations. As a result, they had to spend a
further 55 million dollars to upgrade the stations.
