[img]http://26.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m05r5pE3b21r4bxz8o1_500.jpg[/img] Don't really know anything about it, but it really caught my attention. I'm not sure if its the AK47 or the blue boots and fairy wings.

[QUOTE=proch;35717247]The Sten looks like something a grandpa would make in his garage compared to the Bergmann.[/QUOTE] That's more or less the idea. The STEN was made to be as rudimentary as possible so it does end up looking like something some guy built in his garage.

Any stuff from the Yugoslavia conflict and Kosovo war? I've never really understood what was going on in those wars.
[QUOTE=carcarcargo;35731123]Any stuff from the Yugoslavia conflict and Kosovo war? I've never really understood what was going on in those wars.[/QUOTE] Genocide of Muslims - largest genocide since the Holocaust ( at least at the time, I don't know if Rwanda is higher than it. I doubt it. There was a 3 year siege of Sarajevo, where pretty much every Muslim in the city was killed.) Bar that, I know very litte, since it happened before any of us were born (or at least able to remember)

Slovenia was the first country to break off of Yugoslavia, and in turn Serbia (which was the said "boss" of Yugoslavia) mobilized troops to try and reclaim Slovenia and force them back into Yugoslavia, In-turn Slovenia put up anti tank barricades and put some soldiers on the streets for a war that lasted all but 3 days with 2 or 4 deaths total. Serbia was then called to pull out because of growing tensions with religious groups in Serbia, and Herzegovina, so Serbia pulled its army out and into Croatia, that is about the extent of what i really know, i used to know more but its been a while since my dad told me about it ill ask him and post more later, However I know after Slovenia left there were thousands of killings all over Serbia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina, and tremendous war crimes such as a said the Yellow House Case where 100-300 Serbs were kidnapped and their organs were stolen (primarily kidneys and livers) And fun fact: My dad played tennis with a retired Serbian general who defected to Slovenia in support of their cause.

I wouldnt say this thing right here changed the world, but it took music to a level that had never been reached before: [img]http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_NGeOXNeQU3k/TUBouU-nTyI/AAAAAAAAAOw/oUxM8NA4Nl4/s1600/The+Beatles+-+Sgt+Peppers+Lonely+Hearts+Club+Band.jpg[/img]

Maybe not a photo that shook the world but surely a spot that changed the world. It's Westerplatte in Gdansk, Poland. This is where the first battle of world war 2 was held, and also the hometown of my parents.

[img]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/b/ba/Tanks_before_Russian_White_house.jpg[/img] The "Second October Revolution" of 1993. The Russian White House, home to parliament. Two years after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the communist-majority legislature attempted to out Yeltsin using their lawful powers. Yeltsin attempted to out them using his. They refused to leave the White House. Thousands rioted and demonstrated in the streets in support of the Supreme Soviet and socialism, leading to the military under Yeltsin bringing troops and tanks into the streets. Firece street fighting went on for days. The confrontation ended when Yeltsin's tanks fired on the White House, giving it the damage seen there, and troops flooded the building. "According to government estimates, 187 people were killed and 437 wounded, while sources close to Russian communists put the death toll at as high as 2,000."

But when you see what these people did to a kid, just for wolf whistling at a white woman, I mean that's a compliment... The kid was 14. The grown men beating and shooting this kid don't deserve the title of being "men" they're just overgrown children who's minds didn't mature past infant school. Makes me so angry.

Also, people should post look at the size of a picture and see if it fits on a page before posting. These unnecessarily huge pictures are driving me up the wall!

Here's another photo showing the opposite side of the wall, if anyone is interested. [img]http://www.bunkertours.co.uk/Strichtarn/files/TL003155.jpg[/img]
I find it amusing that there are now sections of the Berlin Wall in the bathrooms of the Main Street Station Restaurant in Las Vegas that you can pee at :v:
