[QUOTE=slayer20;35683937]We need more photos like this and happy photos less pictures and videos of people dieing[/QUOTE] [img]http://lpod.wikispaces.com/file/view/LPOD-Feb3-09.jpg/56025758/LPOD-Feb3-09.jpg[/img] First image from the lunar surface, from the Soviet unmanned Luna 9 probe. This was important because at the time no one knew whether solid objects could stand on the moon, or if they would sink into the accumulated dust of millenia.

This bit made my eyes go damp though. what the shit is wrong with me

[QUOTE=mr apple;35683869]Man, it'd feel like you're wearing a pair of these 24/7 [img]http://www.randomfunstuff.com/catalog/avisilveryellowp22r.JPG[/img][/QUOTE] i'd think it'd feel more like you were dead.
Would it be possible to upload all of your 9/11 Photos? I´ve to admit, they´re very interesting. These are pictures you don´t see in the media. Thank you :).

Yea, they're watching the Bin Laden snuff film they won't show us. I think it's a good way to shut up the conspiracy theorists

[B]On June 21st, 1919, labourers gather outside Winnpeg's City Hall to protest low wages and poor working conditions. That afternoon, the strikers are read the Riot Act.[/B] [img]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/18/WinnipegGeneralStrike.jpg[/img] [B]Failing to disperse, a mounted charge by the Royal Northwest Mounted Police followed, resulting in the deaths of two strikers. Among the arrested that day was J.S. Woodsworth, who would go on to found the Co-operative COmmonweath Federation, the for-runner of the New Democratic Party.[/B] [img]http://thecanadianencyclopedia.com/featuremedia/feature50/strike.jpg[/img] Watching from his roof was a young Tommy Douglas, who would one day bring about the transformation of the CCF into the NDP.

[QUOTE=lunarwalrus;35684845]Is this a real colour photo or an edited black and white one?[/QUOTE] That looks like the original, though IIRC the first photos released had been tinted redder (something about the public view that mars was a red planet).

OK, I'm gonna say that people should stop various images of the 9/11 jumpers here. It's already been posted once, why would it need repeating another 20 times?

To this day I have no idea who 'he' was. :smith:

For some reason though, she went somewhere else on that day - a decision that would have saved her life. But we didn't know if she was OK for the best part of a day, so I remember my parents getting really panicy because they didn't know what had happened to her and feared the worst! Any, drawing a line in the sand fucking NOW!
[QUOTE=lunarwalrus;35684845]Is this a real colour photo or an edited black and white one?[/QUOTE] It's slightly edited because the original had data of colours outside the range of human vision.
[QUOTE=DainBramageStudios;35685749]It's slightly edited because the original had data of colours outside the range of human vision.[/QUOTE] That's quite interesting. I'd love to have bionic eyes and see those new colors. Or is a part of the brain responsible for that? Nonetheless, I want to see redange, or grue, or breen.

Nonetheless, I want to see redange, or grue, or breen.[/QUOTE] There's no reason why you couldn't make the eyes detect a larger range, then squeeze it down into the range humans could see. The "red" that we see would correspond to a much longer wavelength of normal red, and the neuroplasticity of the brain would probably mean it could be re-interpreted as a new color. There might be some loss of the ability to distinguish between similar shades because of the compression process.

[QUOTE=DainBramageStudios;35684553]They're watching a headcam of a Navy Seal during the bin Laden raid/assassination.[/QUOTE] The woman at the back was also later photoshopped out also what is this, fast threads post your 9/11 jumpers edition
[img]http://worldsfamousphotos.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/04/tourist_guy_e-mail_hoax_september_11th_2001_new_york_city.jpg[/img] Probably one of the most famous pictures from the Internet ever. Because some people are clearly stupid, this is a Photoshop - probably one of the most famous ever made. The original picture was taken in the late 90's, but was later photo-shopped with a plane in it. Released in early 2002, some people though it was real, despite the fact that the roof was closed on that day and the photo film wouldn't have survived the collapse [sub][sub][sub]And some still do apparently[/sub][/sub][/sub]
That's not real, is it?
it even says hoax in the file name
Yeah let's date the picture 091101 just in case they don't get it!
well it's famous [I]because[/I] it's a hoax, so it still counts
Pretty sure the photographer would have stopped taking the picture instead of thinking it would be pretty good on facebook
Facebook wasn't around in 2001 :v:

[QUOTE=DudeGuyKT;35663099]Not very popular, but I think it should be. It's a German soldier giving an injured Russian some water. I like it because it humanizes the Germans in WWII, while everyone today seems to think they're just robotic monsters. [img]http://www.ww2incolor.com/d/53013-1/20080927_001[/img][/QUOTE] Honestly most soldiers weren't even tied in with the Jew-hating politics behind WWII, they simply believed they were defending their homeland. Many cultures put an emphasis on serving your country. What's the difference between a German in WWII and an American? Nothing at all. If you want a true definition of "robotic monsters" point finger at the SS. Also, let us not forget about the U.S. claim to fame: -Pissing on dead bodies. -A kill squad in Afghanistan who gunned down innocent civilians. -An Apache helicopter that bombed a reporting team. -My Lai massacre. (Not to mention hundreds of other things like rape and assault on innocent civilians, burning down villages, etc.) -The live burying of multiple Republican Guard in Desert Storm. -The bombing of retreating civilians on The Highway of Death in Desert Storm. -Bombing of innocent civilians in Bosnia. -A soldier who guns down 26 innocent people. I can list more.
