The Great War

0

World War I began in July of 1914.  It changed the world.  I could go on about what changed, but you should have learned all that in school.  Oh, you didn’t, that’s right, unfortunately, The Great War, is always overshadowed by it’s younger, more deadly & exciting brother, World War II.  That’s ok, in fact, that’s completely … Continued

Up, Up, and Away!

This video is hard to believe.  Hard to believe it’s not something from a movie, it’s too perfect.  But here it is in all it’s glory: In case you can’t figure out what’s going on here’s the gist, a truck carrying a suicide bomber was traveling along a highway when it hit an IED in … Continued

This will Kill you

If this video is real, (and so far there’s nothing to say otherwise), then this is what it looks like when a tank shoots you in the face.  I think it’s pretty weird that you can see the actual shell flying through the air, that to me makes it seem fake, but what do I … Continued

Read The Stumbles

Some came from Sumble, some came from Reddit, let’s just bask in the glory that are the wrong internet pics.  There’s quite a collection this time around, it takes longer to collect them because I don’t get to spend hours and days on Stumbleupon anymore, just an hour or so a week before I go … Continued

67 Years ago the United States of America showed the world how powerfull we truly are. The first of 2 nuclear bombs was dropped in anger on another country.  The US was attempting to finish what the Japanese had started 4 years earlier.  Except, we warned them weeks ago to surrender, they didn’t listen.

Iron Sky

Remember Iron Sky?  It’s an independent film about Nazi’s from The Moon, who invade earth in the year 2018.  I’m particularly fond of the line “Man kind’s greatest enemy”  It has a certain ring to it.  If you didn’t pay attention to the giant swastika base you’d think they were actual aliens. I was initially … Continued

Listen to this, or read it, whatever you want: Mr. Vice President, Mr. Speaker, members of the Senate and the House of Representatives: Yesterday, December 7th, 1941 — a date which will live in infamy — the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of … Continued

Ivy Mike

I will never get tired of looking at pictures from operation Ivy, specifically Ivy Mike.  I’m pretty sure the above picture has appeared in the 2nd most number of individual blog posts, (first place goes to a special mosaic).   Last year I did a whole write up on Ivy Mike.  I could repeat the same … Continued

Light Painting

When I first read that title on MAKE I thought that someone actually painted a B-25 bomber with long exposure flash lights.  I thought, holy shit, that guy is impressive.  I quickly realized my mistake though, not quite sure if it’s an honest mistake or a stupid one, but a mistake nonetheless. Anyway, I’m torn … Continued

Operation Neptune

Or, as it’s more commonly known, D-Day. Usually I do a nice long post about the history of it, or I’ll go into an alternate history or something.  But not today.  Today I read this really nice post about it, complete with pictures!  It’s on Google Sight Seeing, and it’s worth the read.  It’s also … Continued
