These two bullets were found after the Battle of Gallipoli which started in 1915 and ended in 1916 during WWI.

I know the people were basically indoctrinated, but it's still fascinating to me that, out of all of those people, there wasn't a massive amount of people that thought "hey, does anyone else find all of this absolutely fricking insane?".

If you thought leaving campus after an SEC game was bad, could you imagine trying to leave after that get together.

As a result of the alcohol prohibition, authorities would routinely confiscate barrels upon barrels of liquor.
Pictured above is a massive stack of barrels that was ready to be set ablaze back in 1924.




So, how did they stack those barrels that high?

That KKK picture is just a bit unsettling for some reason. Clowns at a carnival are creepy enough. But the KKK? Frick that shite.

Photos from inside U-505.
quote:

Captured German U boat On June 4, 1944, a German submarine was prowling the waters off the West African coast for American and Allied ships. Part of a U-boat fleet terrorizing the Atlantic, this submarine was known as U-505 ....For weeks, a U.S. Navy Task Group had tracked a shadowy U-boat. Despite a crack team and the latest technology, the Task Group was unable to pinpoint their elusive prey. Low on fuel, the frustrated captain had just called off the search when … there was something on the sonar.

Finding and destroying the sub would save Allied lives and supplies; capturing it could help win the war by cracking the U-boat mystery—but only if the Germans thought the sub had sunk. Securing the U-505 and keeping the capture secret was the key.
