    1985:

    13 July 1985 is a day to remember. Bob Geldof organises Live Aid at Wembley. Ireland is the highest 'per capita' donor.


    An Air India Boeing 747 crashes into the Atlantic. A terrorist bomb is the suspected cause. All 329 people on board are killed.


    After the death of Konstantin Chernenko, Mikhail Gorbachev becomes Party leader. His policy of 'glasnost' (openness) brings change to the Soviet Union.

    What happened?
    A Dutch national with no motive, no criminal record, no mental instabilities and no grudge or hate against the Royal Family suddenly tried to kill them with his car. He died and his motives are still unclear. 8 people died.

    Does anyone have that photo taken by a toddler on a disposable camera of the first plane hitting the world trade centre? It's the only photo of it and it's really incredible, I saw it on a documentary years ago.

    I have a fullsized print of this one, got it for free at a Marching Band fundraiser garage sale due to busted frame (and for being part of the band).

    It's an Eastern Guard going West right? Berlin Wall Jumper?

    2011 - A 9.0 magnitude earthquake occurs off the northeastern coast of Japan, causing a 40-metre tsunami to strike the country. This results in one of the worst nuclear accidents in history at the Fukushima-Daiichi NPP.

    1986 - The worst nuclear accident in history at the Chernobyl NPP results in a massive amount of radioactive material released into the environment, and the almost complete evacuation of the surrounding area, including the city of Pripyat. Since then, the city has been a ghost town.

    I just know I will be showered in dumb ratings, but I have never exactly known the full story behind the image. Anybody care to explain please?
    The photo was by Eddie Adams, who won a Pulitzer Prize for it. He regretted taking the photograph until his death in 2004.

    South Vietnamese General Ngygen Ngoc Loan is the man firing the shot. Loan was Chief of Police at the time. He aided in building hospitals, giving to orphans, and in general, humanitarian aid. The man being shot was a leader of a Viet Cong squad tasked with killing police.

    "The man Loan shot had been caught near a ditch containing 34 murdered men, women and children, among them were the wife and six children of one of Loan's closest friends (the six murdered kids were also Loan's godchildren)."

    The photo was taken out of context. People were so caught up in the horror of it, they blamed Loan. After immigrating to America and taking an assumed identity to keep himself unknown to the public, he ran a pizza parlor. When he was discovered, he received many numerous death threats and was forced to close his business.
