IMAGES THAT REALLY FASCINATE ME. I HOPE YOU LEARN AS MUCH AS I DID
Children making a kite out of paper money, which is rendered virtually worthless by a period of post-war hyperinflation in Germany, 1923.


But wait, there's more...as building blocks.

If you owe foreign governments billions in war preparations, it's time to devalue your currency.

This is only a few short years after the Supreme Court confirmed a black man's right to do such a thing.

After a long plane ride, let me just crouch in stilettos, put the fear of God in my older child while holding my younger on my legs -- in a dress and hat in front of foreign dignitaries -- and then gracefully stand up without falling over.

You may ask why they are allowed to do that but these are forbidden...

I has to do with proving you are who you say you are.

For generations Americans have been known for their ability to always come up with a Plan B. But not anymore.

Our war on drugs proves that we learned NOTHING from prohibition. There are solutions to our drug problem that does not require the mass incarceration of its citizenry, but we have been brainwashed into thing it a criminal matter instead of a health issue.

She was a JAT Yugoslav Airlines flight attendant when her plane exploded mid-air in 1972, sending her hurtling toward earth in the tail of the aircraft. Her miraculous survival remains the record height for surviving a freefall without a parachute.
Several factors attributed to her unlikely survival: the tail of the plane was relatively intact, and it passed through trees before landing in heavy snow.

Prince Rupert's Drop vs A Bullet
Prince Rupert's Drops (also known as Dutch tears) are glass objects created by dripping molten glass into very cold water.

The glass cools into a tadpole-shaped droplet with a long, thin tail. The water rapidly cools the molten glass on the outside of the drop, while the inner portion of the drop remains significantly hotter. When the glass on the inside eventually cools, it contracts inside the already-solid outer part.

This contraction sets up very large compressive stresses on the surface, while the core of the drop is in a state of tensile stress. It is a type of toughened glass.

The very high residual stress within the drop gives rise to counter-intuitive properties, such as the ability to withstand a blow from a hammer on the bulbous end without breaking, but experiencing explosive disintegration if the tail end is even slightly damaged.

Amazing.

STORY TIME



A sculptor friend of mine used to rent an entire warehouse and throw a hell of a Halloween party. All the guys and most of the girls just used peed in the alley along the tracks. He had a large trailer with draft beer, serve yourself, so you can imagine the level of intoxication.
I offered to help him clean up one year and we through away hundreds of cups of near full beer. The problem was that when a couple decided to dance to the live band they had to set their beer down, and when finished all the beers looked the same, so it was easier just to pour another one than to try to figure out which one was yours.
The next year I suggested selling the cups for one dollar each and giving the money to charity. Each person then put their name on the cup with permanent marker. Problem solved.

THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX
At a certain miles of usage, train cars were pulled off the track to have their grease pads replaced. But they found that a great percentage of them didn't need the grease pad replaced as it was almost like brand new. It had to do not only with mileage, but tonnage of loads, curviness of tracks traveled, as well as weather fluctuations.
Well, the indication that the grease pad needed changing was excess heat to the axle, so a very smart man simply drilled holes in the axle and put in a turkey timer. One glance told them if it needed replacement.

JUST SOMETHING ELSE TO WORRY ABOUT


To quote the article: "President Jimmy Carter’s national-security adviser, Zbigniew Brzezinski, was asleep in Washington, D.C., when the phone rang. His military aide, General William Odom, was calling to inform him that two hundred and twenty missiles launched from Soviet submarines were heading toward the United States. Brzezinski told Odom to get confirmation of the attack. A retaliatory strike would have to be ordered quickly; Washington might be destroyed within minutes. Odom called back and offered a correction: twenty-two hundred Soviet missiles had been launched. Brzezinski decided not to wake up his wife, preferring that she die in her sleep. As he prepared to call Carter and recommend an American counterattack, the phone rang for a third time. Odom apologized—it was a false alarm. An investigation later found that a defective computer chip in a communications device at NORAD headquarters had generated the erroneous warning. The chip cost forty-six cents."
