One Of My Very Own
WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT
Another one is just for Margaret.
Many people don't realize that many big stars had their start on Twilight Zone.
1932: A prostitute at work in Quartier Italie, Paris. Photo by Brassaï.
On another site, I found this next image and just knew they needed to be wedded.
The cunt went bad on us.
1937: A woman wearing a special mask for fighting depression in a Smile School in Budapest. The school was set up in response to a "suicide craze".
*No word on whether that tactic was successful.
European Honey Buzzard
These things eat the larva of wasps and hornets.
And it is the only known predator of the Asian hornet.
*You would think the bees would learn to go for the eyes.
How very, very clever.
1955: Betty White was "on" TV.
I thought that it was photoshopped for comedic value but then I saw the whole photo essay.
Tilting at windmills?
Bathroom signs at an Indian restaurant in Madrid.
It's called a cowch!
I've found it!
Is the circus in town?
Are the aliens among us?
Or was there some interspecies mating going on?
But I've seen that before...
1997: Nicolas Cage testing the Superman costume for Tim Burton’s canceled movie "Superman Lives".
The best place to be is somewhere else = wanderlust.
PEOPLE FUCKING WITH

*Yeah, let's put Christians in charge.

So, in total war do you want to blow up a factory that makes war materials or kill the workers? In total war...both.
1970s: A South Korean soldier forcibly cuts a young man's hair in front of others during a nationwide crackdown on men with long hair and women wearing short skirts in South Korea.
Did you notice the interesting juxtaposition?
He's not even holding the guy's belt.
Another example of kids watching too many serial killer movies.
I'm thinking it scares more than the crows.
People talk about their inner child. I have an inner old man who says inappropriate things, judges everyone, and wants to go to bed at 8pm.
DISASTERS, MISFORTUNES, AND PURE EVILNESS
The passivity came from having your rights slowly stripped away, thinking if you just stayed alive one more day it would be over. Still happens.
This train had a malfunction and was going five times faster than normal.
Not sure where, and don’t know the outcome.
A fuel tank explosion at a gas station.
And here is the one guy demonstrating exactly what I would have done immediately.
I was once given the entire second floor of an unused elementary school building to use as my personal studio. It was the best studio(s) I have ever had. And luckily it was only three blocks from my house. One morning while driving to work I noticed rivers of water gushing down the street. Then I saw that the water originated from the fire department dousing the fire that had completely consumed my studio.
I lost every brush, hammer, tube of paint, and...all of my paintings.
I had recorded every painting on an index card on which I noted the pertinent data plus a slide of it.
The index cards and slides were stored in an oak card catalog drawer from a library.
In the days that followed I rummaged through the ruins and saw what looked like a burned loaf of bread. When I toed it with my boot it separated and there was what was left of the index cards.
The theory was that the drawer was open and the fire hoses simply filled it with water. The index cards were still readable but the water from the fire hoses had completely ruined the slides.
That fire was one of the reasons I became a muralist. From that day forward I intended to sell my work before I painted them and in such a way it couldn't easily be destroyed.
