-worst thread reading eversnip-
So we are starting to repeat ourselves.
wait what, seriously? but I looked through the whole- *reads first page again*
Romanian Revolution 1989:
Surprised the C64 boot screen hasn't been posted.
Sometime around the year 1000, Leif Ericson founds the colony of Vinland, at modern day L'Anse aux Meadows, Canada. It was the first and so far only confirmed trans-oceanic colonization before Christopher Columbus began his journey in 1492.
I know there were no photos taken derp but it was still important.
First ever photo of a human. You can see him down near the bottom left. Since pictures had to be exposed for 10 minutes, everything had moved on before it was caught. The exception what the gentleman you see there, having his shoes shined.

I have a huge collection of 9-11 pictures. Some of the graphic stuff and since these are photos that shook the world I think I can post them even with their nature. They're not well known pictures and are rather obscure because of the sensitive nature of their content (mostly the Jumpers) but I'll throw a few in the thread and if anyone is interested I can post more.
This is a shot taken of the North Tower VIP driveway. In this picture alone there are around 5-6 Jumpers that have landed on the overhang. According to Firefighters the triangles were made of plexiglass and when the Jumpers did manage to make it through it mangled them as you can see laying behind the SUV. One the Jumpers remains pretty well intact, I have a photo of [her/him] as [he/she] was falling. I speculate that the way they fell managed to absorb some of the shock. Usually Jumpers 'explode' when they land. Bones shatter, bone marrow, fat tissues and blood congeal and mix together with oils and spread out over eight feet. I have a picture of what it looks like too. I also have a video of a Jumper exploding and another landing.
This Jumper landed on the roof of the Marriot between the North and South Tower.
Approximately seventy people landed infront in the Plaza right infront of the Lobby of the North Tower. When the Jumpers land their blood mists and disperses so a single Jumper or two won't produce a pool of blood but in this circumstance it was like layering on paint over and over again until it was running down the windows and pooling on the Plaza. This is a screencap from a video, in this video you can also see a Jumper hit the stage between the two Towers where numerous Jumpers also landed.
Another note to make that when the planes hit the towers that bodies were torn apart and ejected across several blocks. The red bits you see everywhere used to be people.
Another piece of someone landed on the sidewalk.
I have hundreds of pictures like these. Most people don't know they exist but it's important that what happened the day is forgotten. It wasn't just two buildings collapsing, it was naked terror and these pictures don't even scratch the surface.
What is the estimate in the amount of people that decided to jump instead of the alternative?
For reference here is a video of people from Windows on The World in the North Tower hanging out the windows, that's only a small portion of one facade of the building. Most of them end up jumping before the tower collapses.
that video makes me feel sick
All buildings in the village of Severny (both wooden and brick), located 55 kilometres (34 mi) from ground zero within the Sukhoy Nos test range, were completely destroyed. In districts hundreds of kilometers from ground zero, wooden houses were destroyed, stone ones lost their roofs, windows and doors; and radio communications were interrupted for almost one hour. One participant in the test saw a bright flash through dark goggles and felt the effects of a thermal pulse even at a distance of 270 kilometres (170 mi). The heat from the explosion could have caused third-degree burns 100 km (62 mi) away from ground zero. A shock wave was observed in the air at Dikson settlement 700 kilometres (430 mi) away; windowpanes were partially broken to distances of 900 kilometres (560 mi). Atmospheric focusing caused blast damage at even greater distances, breaking windows in Norway and Finland. The seismic shock created by the detonation was measurable even on its third passage around the Earth. Its seismic body wave magnitude was about 5 to 5.25. The energy yield was around 7.1 on the Richter scale but, since the bomb was detonated in air
So much death in this thread.
If you knew any better, they sent a lot of young men to the Vietnam war. A lot of who hadn't been to WWII, except for high-ranking commander generals and shit.
History is a tapestry stained red with the blood of millions.
I think those 9/11 pictures are literally the most unsettling things I've ever seen. I actually want you to post more.
I think it's most unsettling to know that I was within a few miles radius of this all on this day, and the fact that I was 6 years old when all this act of simply inhuman nature occurred. I was 6 years old, within a few miles radius of all of that. Blows my fucking mind.
On entirely different notes...
"The picture depicts stricken child crawling towards an United Nations food camp, located a kilometer away."
Vancouver riot kiss.
I go to New York City sometimes for vacation, and on Wednesday I got back from a trip there. I was in the area where the towers fell and it's so hard to imagine all of this that happened, where I later stood.
But, we rebuild.
Photo taken by me on 4/17/12
Alright, well I can show you an area that was pretty dense with Jumpers. Let me link the video first.
00:49 at almost the center of the screen you'll see a Jumper hit a railing and explode, you'll see the mist of the blood and hear the sound of the body hitting the railing, which I have a picture of, they bent it pretty badly. About a dozen Jumpers landed in this particular area.
Some people don't think it's a Jumper but in documentaries that use that footage like "102 Minutes that Changed America" they censor it and drown out the "BANG"
This is where the Jumpers landed. There are three Jumpers in this picture, one is hidden right behind the firefighter because he's walking infront of it but I have a picture. The other two are infront and behind the truck respectively but they're pretty fucked up. You can even see where that railing has been broken down and bent.
Behind the Firefighter, by that red sign there is another Jumper.
Those signs were all around the building and said "WTC 1" "WTC 2" and what not. You notice how this one is bent, so you know it's the same one. Toward the left of Ten Truck is the VIP driveway where the other Jumper picture was taken.
To give you an idea, this Jumper landed in the middle of this parking lot and there isn't much left of him, they like, collapse into themselves and spread out over eight feet. You can see chunks and bits of that Jumper all over that picture, on the sidewalk, on the street, across the parking lot and cars. It was like this for a few blocks in every direction of the towers.
This is basically what happens, their blood and fats and oils mix together and turn into this sorta substance. This is a foot of a Jumper by the way, still wearing a shoe. People usually don't know what they're looking at even when there are Jumpers in the picture because they're looking for bodies but when they landed they didn't look like anything except small chunks, shredded clothes and this fatty substance over eight feet around where they landed.
This is a pretty bad one too. Government exhibit from the trial of Moussaoui, Jumper head laying on the street infront of the towers.
I still have plenty more where this came from. And for a bit more perspective here's a chart.
I.. i have never really told anyone, at least my friends and such, but, i was there i was 12 years old and i was with my dad in the city, he worked at 1 Penn Plaza right off of 33rd St, i was with him because we were going to a doctor and he needed to grab some stuff for work before my appointment, so i went up to his office with him. And as he is finishing some stuff on the computer, and his secretary calls him over in a pancaked voice, and her exact words were "a plane just hit one of the towers" and i remember thinking there was no way, just no way, that that could happen, and i walked out and saw the smoke and.... i saw the 2nd plane hit too, after that we tried to leave but there was so much chaos, we stayed in the underground parking lot for a bit then went up and tried to walk out to the GW bridge, and right after the first tower fell and there was so much dust...
Thank you for posting these pictures, i mean for me just looking at them makes me shake, as im writing this my hands are shaking furiously, I
