    Traditionally, threads of this manner have legs and do well.

    Historical and cultural.

    Simple and thought out, Mao.

    Cheers.

    Scott's Terra Nova Expedition to the South Pole 1910-1913.


















    Capt. Scott outfitted for his push to the South Pole.


    A frostbitten Charles Wright at camp after returning from the Great Ice Barrier as part of the first support party aiding Scott's push to the South Pole.


    Capt. Scott and the polar party discover a tent left behind by Amundsen, who had reached the South Pole a month earlier.


    Expedition members return to New Zealand on the Terra Nova after finding the bodies of Scott and the other victims.

    And if the dam breaks open many years too soon
    And if there is no room upon the hill
    And if your head explodes with dark forebodings too
    I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

    These guy must all have been electricians? Just look at their regimental insignia!
    No one on TD is gay. If suspect, it was probably because of the way they were reared.
    I apologize if any offence was caused. unless it was intended.
    You people, you think I know feck nothing; I tell you: I know feck all
    How much more grievous are the consequences of anger than the causes of it.

    Regina Walters, serial killer victim.



    [IMG]Moments after this photo was taken, 14-year-old Regina Walters, a runaway from Pasadena, Texas, was murdered by serial killer Robert Ben Rhoades in 1989. She had been strangled with baling wire and her body was abandoned in the same barn from the picture. Five months before her body would be discovered, Rhoades' 15-year murder spree came to an end when a trooper felt Rhoades had parked dangerously on the shoulder of Interstate 40 about 50 miles north of Phoenix. The trooper discovered another girl chained to the door with welts on her body, cuts on her mouth, and a horse bridle secured around her neck. For his crimes, Rhoades was sentenced to life without parole.[/IMG]
