Interesting pics in history, LEGO edition...
Po Monkey's Lounge - One of the last standing and operating juke joints. Located in the middle of a cotton field in Mississippi.
you're on timeout now. even though i chuckled
Juke joint (or jook joint) is the vernacular term for an informal establishment featuring music, dancing, gambling, and drinking, primarily operated by African American people in the southeastern United States. The term "juke" is believed to derive from the Gullah word joog, meaning rowdy or disorderly. A juke joint may also be called a "barrelhouse".
Classic juke joints found, for example, at rural crossroads, catered to the rural work force that began to emerge after the emancipation. Plantations workers and sharecroppers needed a place to relax and socialize following a hard week, particularly since they were barred from most white establishments by Jim Crow laws. Set up on the outskirts of town, often in ramshackle buildings or private houses, juke joints offered food, drink, dancing and gambling for weary workers. Owners made extra money selling groceries or moonshine to patrons, or providing cheap room and board.
Just trying to lighten the mood. Vulture pic had errbody in a tizzy.
I went to one in Rosedale, MS one time. So weird seeing this shack out in the middle of nowhere having great live music. The ceilings were probably 7 feet high. It was like stepping back in time.
My dad always used the term jook joint... I never knew it was a formal name. We have a handful around us, and that description is spot on. We actually had a guy get stabbed at one a while back.
damn thats like 3 feet above your head
Alternative account of the photograph
Portuguese photojournalist based in South Africa João Silva, who accompanied Carter to Sudan, gave a different version of events in an interview with Japanese journalist and writer Akio Fujiwara that was published in Fujiwara's book The Boy who Became a Postcard (????????? - Ehagaki ni sareta sh?nen).
According to Silva, they (Carter and Silva) went to Sudan with the United Nations aboard Operation Lifeline Sudan and landed in Southern Sudan on March 11, 1993. The UN told them that they would take off again in 30 minutes (the time necessary to distribute food), so they ran around looking to take shots. The UN started to distribute corn and the women of the village came out of their wooden huts to meet the plane. Silva went looking for guerrilla fighters, while Carter strayed no more than a few dozen feet from the plane.
Again according to Silva, Carter was quite shocked as it was the first time that he had seen a famine situation and so he took many shots of the children suffering from famine. Silva also started to take photos of children on the ground as if crying, which were not published. The parents of the children were busy taking food from the plane so they had left their children only briefly while they collected the food. This was the situation for the girl in the photo taken by Carter. A vulture landed behind the girl. To get the two in focus, Carter approached the scene very slowly so as not to scare the vulture away and took a photo from approximately 10 metres. He took a few more photos and then the vulture flew off.
also from his wiki so no one really knows what happened or the circumstances in which the photo was taken....at least this persons account doesn't make it sound like he left the kid to die while he went on about his business

On another note, Thich Quang Duc set himself on fire protesting Diem's treatment of Buddhists Monks

The Interahamwe: Hutu Army that carried out the killings in Rwanda

Because I'm trying to add something to the thread instead of bitching about a dead photographer.
I'm not sure if they all have names or not.
3. Quaker Guns: In the American Civil War, Confederate armies artfully disguised wooden logs as cannons (“Quaker guns”), to fool the numerically superior northern troops into believing that confederate artillery forces were greater than they were, sometimes dissuading the northern forces from attacking.
The Ghost Army: The US army created a fake army of inflatable rubber tanks, sound trucks, and phony transmissions, in order to convince the Nazis that the invasion of Fortress Europe would be launched against Calais instead of Normandy. Hitler fell for it hook, line, and sinker.
If you can't appreciate the historical significance music plays then you don't properly appreciate history
Again, Zakk Wylde. Regardless, I understand what he was trying to do.
Corkscrew tanks didn’t run on the typical caterpillar type treads, instead propelled by giant corkscrews. Just like an electric screwdriver pulls into a piece of wood, so these treads would cruise along the ground, regardless of terrain. Their travel was a bit erratic, and the tanks had to be too lightweight to be useful in combat.

The Goliath tracked mine was a remote controlled anti tank mine that carried nearly 200 pounds of explosives and would be steered toward enemy troop or tank formations and detonated. These mines were created by the Germans and used throughout World War II, on all fronts, and were known as beetle tanks by Allied forces.

He just has a well known guitar. That's the only reason he's listed.
Would shit my pants on the spot if these crazy niggas started runnin at me with machetes.
Tombstone, Arizona circa 1880
Wild Bill Hickock
Sioux Indian Village 1891
I know not everyone read the OP, but let's limit these photos. There is no need for 75 photos per post, spread that shit out over multiple posts
Two soldiers are dead, but only one – the Union trooper – has been buried in this photograph taken after the battle by Alexander Gardner
In March 1862, the Confederates abandoned their position at Manassas Junction, Va., site of the July 1861 rebel victory, as they prepared for a Union invasion
Dead Japanese At Edson's Ridge on Guadalcanal.

May 22, 1944 Life Magazine Picture with the caption "Arizona war worker writes her Navy boyfriend a thank-you-note for the Jap skull he sent her"
The photo and the caption are hilarious. Like the war was all smiles and jokes.
50 years ago today, Yuri Gagarin became the first human to launch into space.
I bet he was so fucking nervous
so true lol...
I've seen my dad do things similar (a lot of his job requires him to do stuff 50-150 feet above the ground). While I'm to much of a chicken shit to do it, lots of people still can/will. Hell there is a guy that has climbed, free handed, up most of the tall buildings in the world.
good stuff. My granddad was in one of Patton's divisions, the first one into the now Czech Republic, awesome stories
I don't post much, but today is a special one. April 12, 2011 marks the 150th anniversary of the start of the American Civil War. I was destined to be a bit of a Civil War nerd being born in South Carolina and on April 12th. Here are some pics of Fort Sumter in Charleston to mark the occasion:
There's some evidence showing he wasn't the first, too. Just the first to survive and the first one the Russians admitted to.
This might not be true. See #4
The proper name is not the Civil War. It's the War of Northern Aggression.
There is an interesting copyrights case about this guitar. If I remember it correctly, Prince sued a guy for making and selling the guitar, won, and then started using the guitar himself.
