Let's start thread with some historic pics
think im gonna skip the rest of the ships
Kaiser Wilhelm's daughter Victoria looking qt in a hussar uniform
pessimism rots ...
any-who our young historians here's a related picture; Thank G-D! A Jewish comic that isn’t about the Holocaust. I know this sounds flip, but as a “Jewish intellectual”, in Toronto, I’m always enthused when Jewish history isn't framed though such a narrow lens. There are so many persecutions to pick from, and while I acknowledge that the Holocaust is important to study, Jewish history shouldn't be just one sad slow train to Auschwitz.
Enter ‘Mendoza the Jew’, a pictorial history of a poor Sephardi Jewish boxer in 18th century London... historic it isn't with out context Op your a muppet
it's like you've never seen this image before...Women at a shell filling factory
obviously don't ever publicize the lame conscientious objectors or any child labor together
I know this is bait, but
anon has never walked through the center of town and had a bedpan mistakenly thrown on the top of his head from some second story window. anon has never known anyone who has been in danger of contracting cholera. But I'm sure the rest of us wouldn't mind if he did.
probably be easier just saying bump than finding a historic image
Apollo 8, the first manned mission to the moon, entered lunar orbit on Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, 1968. That evening, the astronauts-Commander Frank Borman, Command Module Pilot Jim Lovell, and Lunar Module Pilot William Anders-held a live broadcast from lunar orbit, in which they showed pictures of the Earth and moon as seen from their spacecraft. Said Lovell, "The vast loneliness is awe-inspiring and it makes you realize just what you have back there on Earth." They ended the broadcast with the crew taking turns reading from the book of Genesis.
NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) recently captured a unique view of Earth from the spacecraft's vantage point in orbit around the moon.
"The image is simply stunning," said Noah Petro, Deputy Project Scientist for LRO at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. "The image of the Earth evokes the famous 'Blue Marble' image taken by Astronaut Harrison Schmitt during Apollo 17, 43 years ago, which also showed Africa prominently in the picture."
The Apollo 12 Lunar Module (LM), in a lunar landing configuration, is photographed in lunar orbit from the Command and Service Modules (CSM) on Nov. 19, 1969. The coordinates of the center of the lunar surface shown in picture are 4.5 degrees west longitude and 7 degrees south latitude. The largest crater in the foreground is Ptolemaeus; and the second largest is Herschel. Aboard the LM were astronauts Charles Conrad Jr., commander; and Alan L. Bean, lunar module pilot. Astronaut Richard R. Gordon Jr., command module pilot, remained with the CSM in lunar orbit while Conrad and Bean descended in the LM to explore the surface of the moon.
"People knew amino acids were in the lunar samples, but they didn't know where they came from,"
Since the lunar surface is completely inhospitable for known forms of life, scientists don't think the organic matter came from life on the moon. Instead, they think the amino acids could have come from four possible sources. First, since traces of life are everywhere on Earth, the amino acids could be simply contamination from terrestrial sources, either from material brought to the moon by the missions, or from contamination introduced while the samples were being handled back on Earth.
Second, rocket exhaust from the lunar modules contains precursor molecules used to build amino acids (such as hydrogen cyanide or HCN). This contamination could produce amino acids during lunar sample analysis in the lab.
Third, the solar wind – a thin stream of electrically conducting gas continuously blown off the surface of the Sun -- contains the elements used to make amino acids, such as hydrogen, carbon, and nitrogen. Just like contamination from lunar module exhaust, material from the solar wind could produce amino acids during sample workup.
meanwhile back on earth 4chan was being deluged with meaningless repetitive celebrity images...
Probably some European trash that's just as prejudiced and wooden-headed as his ancestors 400 years ago. Leave them in their tiny ass-end of a continent while the rest of us make computers and spaceships.
=D true indeed.
When idiots tell me "there's a secret Jewish conspiracy" I tell them "Jews all in on a secret together, huh? Have you ever been in a car with two Jewish dudes trying to choose a parking space? No? Spoiler: they can't agree. Also no two humans can keep a secret and no, Jews aren't from space."

looks exactly the same today, with the difference that there is now a large street along the water and passing under the first arch of the bridge.
even the square-cut trees in front of the church are still square-cut.
You have to place it in the scope of that era, it was a negro baby, that was (!) absolutly worthless, not even human but a mere subspecies of monkeys. Nowadays they use goats or sheep. Back then he probably gave a tenner to the parents, that baby probably would died anyway of a myriad of diseases or afflictions....sad isn't it.
Am I the only person who likes watching movies in chronological order?
Felt like looking this up, this point where the building of the railroads met up and finished was on Great Salt Lake in Utah. on the map it shows a man-made earth causeway that the train uses, it cuts directly across the lake and heads to southern california
Same reason 100 hz refresh rate on Tv set make the motion "more real" than real life. You expect reality to be more detailed, while it won't always be. And the shot is taken from a vantage point, perspective and shadowing make a huge contrast with the Earth, fully exposed to the Sun's light.
