During the American Revolutionary War and the War of 1812, America began building a fort near the New York – Quebec border to defend against invasions from British Canada. After two years of construction, they realized the fort was actually on the Canadian side. They abandoned it and nicknamed it Fort Blunder.

We had low water, vacuum forced toilets on the Sprucan I was on. So, screwing up never goes out of vogue.
I have, since my navy days called every command/base/station in the DC area “Fort Blunder” due, mainly, to the huge amount of fuck ups eminating from the bowels of those stations. Starting with The Pentagon, BuPers etc et al as nauseum.
