    Snowflake alert, killed without trial!



    Mussolini was not executed by hanging, rather he was shot to death by communist and antifascist Walter Audisio, after which his body was taken to Piazzale Loreto, and hung on display alongside his lover and some other fascists.



    During this display, members of the crowd lined up to shoot Mussolini's corpse with a rifle, and later to bash his head with a hammer.

    End result:

    Another sad face of poverty. This may look normal at first sight, but the passengers in all of these pics are dead bodies.

    This is how corpses are taken from villages to the morgue in remote parts of DRCongo. The people cannot afford to rent a hearse or truck, so they wrap it with fabrics and a village local takes it to the nearest morgue, which can be as much as a full day of hard driving if the village is far from a city.

    15 April 1919, this German submarine grounded on the beach at Hastings, in front of the Queens Hotel.



    Thousands flocked to see the sub up close, and a sharp town clerk spotted the opportunity to charge a small fee for people who wanted to climb onto the deck. Coastguardsmen also headed tours both outside and inside the submarine.

    These visits and tours abruptly ended when the guides and some visitors became severely ill, and two of the guides died from chemical burns to the lungs due to chlorine gas that was escaping from the beached sub’s battery.

    Pictures of the Crew Dragon launch this morning. I think they qualify as amazing.

    Launches just before dawn can produce this effect when it is still dark on the ground but the sun hits the rocket exhaust at altitude.

    Curiosity, interest in space since Sputnik. I share my history with a lot of people. Intense interest up until the Apollo moon flights. Then intense disappointment and loss of interest in the Shuttle era, when we realized Shuttle is an obstacle to space exploration, a complete failure. Then interest coming back with SpaceX because they are the only ones who can accomplish advances in the field. Some hope that others follow the example of SpaceX. But so far it is very limited, Blue Origin close to failure in producing advances similar to SpaceX, very disappointing. To be very clear, this is not an Elon fan thing, it is the failure to deliver by Blue Origin.

    Besides interplanetary probes, an area where NASA always excelled.

    ^ We were watching a space doco tonight and I was able to tell my kid that in 2-4 years we'll be sitting here on the sofa watching live streams of people walking on the moon, and then on Mars.

    Having been born in the 80's I missed out on the Apollo missions and any sort of manned exploration. Gonna be damned cool watching those whole events play out.


    Unfortunately, after we walk on Mars, it's gonna be a helluva long time before man walks somewhere new, without massive leaps in scientific technology, which will come in the coming centuries.


    So bring on the next few years of people on the Moon and Mars.

    Not sure whether it is "amazing' or just "amusing"?

    Indeed.

    But it's not with any sense of satisfaction, share personal details or hide personal details as is your wont, and I get it, there's too many cvnts and nutters out there that will use and stalk any info they find, but the constant misdirection and bullshit is just trying. Best just to not share.
