Today is the 109th anniversary of the mutiny aboard the Russian Battleship Potemkin, so we're giving you eight mutinies from the 20th century. So sit back and enjoy, well unless you're an officer and if that's the case you should probably hide in your quarters until this whole thing dies down.

In 1905 the Battleship Potemkin mutinied, it was triggered by Ippolit Giliarovsky, the ship's second in command. The final straw was when many sailors aboard Potemkin refused to eat borscht made from rotten meat that was partially infested with maggots, to be fair borscht in general is bad enough to illicit a mutiny.
