The Great Smokies and Japan

0

It’s no secret that I love the National Parks. They are steeped in history be it natural, historical, or modern. I kind of knew some of the history of The Great Smoky Mountains, basically the gist of George Masa being responsible for it. However this short 5 minute video is a great retrospective of all … Continued

Surreal Joshua Tree

0

Last week it snowed in Joshua Tree National Park. That’s rare because it’s a desert, but it’s also pretty frekin awesome looking as attested by this 360 video: This was shot on the new GoPro Max. I remember that GoPro was trying to get into the 360 camera business for awhile but when I was … Continued

Pearl Harbor

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 Japan. The world changed that day.  Mostly for the better but everyone now-a-days is up in arms about what could have and should have been.  Today is not … Continued

There’s really no need for this, but like a good America, it had to be made.  I don’t know if he’s American, but it doesn’t matter, this is American to the core. I need one. {reddit}

Can you believe that it’s been eighteen years since that faithful morning when the world stopped?  Eighteen years.  There are teenagers alive now who you can have an adult conversation with who weren’t alive when it happened.  There are young adults who were still in diapers when it happened.  It was a terrible event, but … Continued

WW2

Today marks the 80th year since the bloodiest war in the history of man.  Early in the day, Hitler’s Nazi Germany invaded Poland setting off the spark of events that spiraled into World War II.  It’s bee sugar coated, it’s been glorified, it’s been everything under the sun, but at the end of the day, … Continued

Nagasaki

The decisive end to World War 2 came about 74 years ago today with the Atomic bombing of the port city of Nagasaki.  The Empire of Japan having not really believed what happened a few days prior at Hiroshima did not head the warning the US was giving and as such, something terrible happened. Thankfully … Continued

The Hummer H1

I love the Hummer.  If I could have any car in the world, that would be it.  Sure it’s got terrible gas mileage.  Sure it’s massive and wouldn’t fit up my driveway.  Sure it’s excessive.  But it’s just so damn cool.  I don’t need toe $200k version.  I’m OK with an army surplus one from … Continued

A 360° View of The F-35

0

This is a pretty good video that goes over some of the advanced features of the new fifth-generation fighter, the F-35: It’s a nice video, the beginning of it doesn’t really merit a 360° video, but it’s still cool.  There’s alot of 35,000 foot type view information given of the different systems and how they … Continued

75 Years of D-Day

0

The passage of time move slowly yet surly forward.  It cannot be stopped, rewound, or ignored.  Sometimes it seems like it’s paused when we go to sleep, but it moves on with or without our knowledge and most of all, without our blessing.  In the grand scheme of things, 75 years is not a long … Continued
