    from wikipedia:

    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.[1] 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.[1] 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.[2] Owners made extra money selling groceries or moonshine to patrons, or providing cheap room and board.

    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.

    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).[7]

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.
