I think this one is quite famous. It's the last photo 2pac would ever appear in before he was shot dead in a drive-by shooting. [IMG]http://filesmelt.com/dl/2PacLast.jpg[/IMG] Also 2Pac > Biggie
Not safe for work: [url]http://katatonia.musica.mustdie.ru/dead.jpg[/url] It's the body of Dead, the vocalist of Mayhem, a Black Metal band. The photography was used by Euronymous, one of the other band members to put on their new alum's cover.

His suicide note included an apology for using a gun indoors and ended with 'Excuse all the blood'. And there was also controversy over one of the other members supposedly keeping fragments of his skull, he never explained why.
[QUOTE=download;35684625]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[/QUOTE] yeah dude hiding the only evidence of an already questionable takeout of the worlds most wanted man is a great way to reassure people that they are telling the truth threw the body in the ocean lmao

It's a really interesting read anyway. [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Early_Norwegian_black_metal_scene[/url]

The WTC pictures are great, because I haven't seen them before. Do post more if there are any.
Anyone else think it's really sad how most pictures in this thread are about death? Let's cheer things up. The "Snow Angel" taken by Hubble [quote]The bipolar star-forming region, called Sharpless 2-106, or S106 for short, looks like a soaring, celestial snow angel. The outstretched "wings" of the nebula record the contrasting imprint of heat and motion against the backdrop of a colder medium. Twin lobes of super-hot gas, glowing blue in this image, stretch outward from the central star. This hot gas creates the "wings" of our angel. A ring of dust and gas orbiting the star acts like a belt, cinching the expanding nebula into an "hourglass" shape.[/quote] [img]http://imgsrc.hubblesite.org/hu/db/images/hs-2011-38-a-large_web.jpg[/img]
I still find it funny at how conspiracy theorists still claim that it was a missile that hit the Pentagon, they're just so completely stupid and ignorant that they overlook photos that clearly show the remnants of the airplane.

Here are some pages of 9/11 photos from individual photographers.

Too be honest, in an odd sort of way, a lot of the animosity towards Muslims is understandable after seeing a lot of those pictures, especially regarding the mosque that was being built. Personally, I don't know my stand-point, but it's..different then it was to say the least.
[QUOTE=CrispexOps;35686587]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.[/QUOTE] If I remember correctly, there was a German law (made before the Nazis came to power) that military soldiers were not allowed to be part of a political party or do any political actions.

[QUOTE=Emperor Scorpious II;35693641]If I remember correctly, there was a German law (made before the Nazis came to power) that military soldiers were not allowed to be part of a political party or do any political actions.[/QUOTE] Not sure. Either way, the SS were the ones who did the Holocaust. Not foot soldiers. While there were probably a few occurrences of violence against Jews from them, mostly they fought the same war everyone else did.

If you saw load of pictures of the Oklahoma City Bombing and the Utoya Island Massacre, would you say it was understandable to have animosity towards Christians? No, because hardly any Christians are as extreme as those people - it would be an insult to the rest of Christianity to do so. Why is this any different?

Chechnya?
[QUOTE=$$>MUFFIN<$$;35697089]Chechnya?[/QUOTE] No, it was the Yugoslav war, that caused the break up of Yugoslavia into the independent countries of Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina. My parents are both from Slovenia so i find anything related to this war incredibly interesting, Also ill post more of my 9/11 experience in a bit.

Just browsed through all the pages and I got to say that some pictures are outstanding! The pictures of the jumpers made me cringe though.
Today being ANZAC day and all, I think these photos are where they should be: [img]http://www.awm.gov.au/visit/images/PAIU1989_140_01_1.jpg[/img] [img]http://media.treehugger.com/assets/images/2011/10/gallipoliL1904_468x289.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.collieshs.wa.edu.au/images/featureimages/School_Life_Images/ANZAC/GallipoliLanding.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.theage.com.au/ffximage/2005/11/02/2_Gallipoli_051101123834026_wideweb__300x375.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.turkeygallipoli.com/images/Gallipoli_11.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.theage.com.au/ffximage/2006/01/06/EllisAshmeadBartlett_060106115041519_wideweb__300x473.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.handofgod.com.au/attachments/Image/Anzac-cove-460x276.jpg[/img]
