Sup /b/itches, lets get an historic picture thread going. Add a description if you know whats going on.
Steve Jobs before his death. His doctors were able too keep him alive for an extra three years.
Pyramid of German helmets from the Victory Liberty Loan parade, New York City, 1919
American P47 pilot after his plane gets hit by a flak shell that didnt explode
>Followed a strict diet for years, which doctors told him would destroy his pancreas.
>He of course knew better, and wound up with pancreatic cancer.
>Didn't change his diet as he still knew better.
Calm down, Fido. I know Apple is a cult, but calm the fuck down.
There's this thing called "Google..."
Construction of the Eiffel tower
they were not that different actually shermans had 60-40mm and tigers had 100-80mm's of armor,though tiger had a actual cannon
Say what you will, but that fellowship and order is something we should feel envy of nowadays. Too bad multiculturalism and freedom and openness are but memes - which society has yet to understand.
Here's a pic of my day at the range yesterday.
fuckin hell look at the land. "We captured this ground from the enemy. Sure it may look like a dead planet but its ours now"
also druid is a pretty cool name for a tank. Stolen for tg purposed
this. people talk alot about how terrible the holocaust and war was and forget the fact that murica basically paraded and celebrated the murder of every german soldier, with soldiers collecting their helmets as literal trophies.

>Islam, not even once.
way to generalize, you fucking moron.
they were Muslim before as well, they just let assholes take over.
or is the nuance between the different types of Muslims too much for you to understand?
no stupid. Oscar is the name of that guy in the picture. he invented the dipped statuette, nicknamed after its creator. They even made an awards ceremony for the best statue dippers.
It's hilarious how the allied still see this their greatest military achievement: storming a beach defended by a handful of german soldiers with 1.2 billion pieces of cannon fodder.
Image from the shoot of Becky Sharp, the first feature film in 3-strip technicolor. 1935. That huge box is the camera, it's inside what's called a "blimp" to silence the loud camera noise and allow sound recording.
This is what the camera itself looks like. Notice how thicc the magazine is, it actually ran three strips of standard black and white 35mm film, one for each color. This yeilded the exceptional results we are familiar with from color films made between 1935 and 1952. It also needed a metric shit-ton of light since it had to split this light for each of the films.
What a lot of people conveniently seem to forget is that the United States Army needed relatively lightweighted tanks for transfort. They also had a different armoured doctrine compared to the Germans at the time, hence the Sherman's armanent initially being relatively weak.
Last public appearance of spanish fascist dictator Franco, on October 1st 1975. To his right are the former king and queen of Spain. They're both still alive and kicking, but the king abdicated a few years ago since he was a randy bastard and his family mixed up in corruption scandals. This same king was also instrumental in the transition of Spain towards """"""""democracy""""""""
I don't think it's a scuttled tank, They'd usually disable the drivetrain and/or the barrel and breach of the gun. And even that was on ''top secret'' or valueable tanks like the Tigers.
But hey, as I said. We need a background story. It's still nice to see these historic pictures resurfacing.
God damn you are autistic.
First, this was paraded around the world by allied victors - you're talking about dozens of countries.
Second, Germany killed (not murdered) millions of soliers in WW1, and when that wasnt good enough to satisfy their bloodlust, they truly did in fact murder CIVILIANS. You are a moron, for real.
Fuck you for the slam on America btw. You're just a jealous loser.
Posting some early colour photos.
Pic related is a true-color photo from 1917, using a process called Autochrome which used glass plates and yeilded excellent results.
there is gravity on the moon, just not as much as on earth
Literally all you need to do is google those three words. That's it. You have a search bar right in your browser. Why is this so difficult for people now days? You have all the information to figure this out on your own but instead you decide to shitpost. There should be an I.Q. requirement to use the internet.
IT'S HAPPENING! 4CHAN MENTIONED IN CNN CONCERNING ATTACKS ON SHILLARY!
Joseph Goebbels, one of Hitlers most devout underlings and a man who became known for his “homicidal anti-Semitism.” That was him being told the photographer is jewish right before he took the picture.
paris cityscape, around ww1 seeing all the military around
He did the traditional route to its conclusion. Most of his pancreas was removed and he received proper medical treatment. At that point a return is effectively 100% fatal, there is only a little piece of your pancreas left and removing it kills you. Once his cancer had returned any treatment was basically treating a dead man, so he tried what he could.
Part of me likes to think that being a massive douche bag might have brought his cancer back.
Nevertheless, he lived for 20 years with an aggressive cancer. Pretty impressive.
If you are shooting something that would require a tank cannon and you need to have it mounted on something that can fly then I'd assume it's not overkill at all. That might seem a bit obvious, but in all fairness, you asked a dumb question.
American soldier being rescued after escaping from a Japanese prison via the drain system during WW2.
Acoustic-era recording studio. The horn on the left is for recording, the sound goes to a needle which cuts into the wax cylinder (or disc), before the invention of electronic recording using microphones and amplification.
how can you let women decide things for your country, just look at what the chancellor of germany did a while back, hitler had the right idea, we need to have a mass genocide of muslims
Edison experimented with very large horns for recording, the largest one being 125 feet long. Here you can listen to a recording made using that horn in 1923 (right around the time electronic recording was about to become commonplace btw)
that woman and kid are dead because he shot them in the head and arm respectively, not because the bad guy shot them. Besides, a spree killer would not perform a move such as that, he would not need hostages, and a criminal would not shoot a hostage, unless it was a desperate situation
Lol. Can you imagine if this guy's like being chased
and every second counts but the faggot combat correspondent is all like
"Good job Corporal Barnes, but we're gonna need you to climb back into that small ass drain pipe so we can get a picture of you crawling out. We'll set up our equipment and call you out when we're ready."
Confirmed for not knowing shit about the history of conflict in the middle east.
I swear america is like the scapegoat for everything bad that happens in the world now.
It's almost like people completely forget that israel exists and why. Or just how many other countries are and have been involved in the complete fucking up of the region.
I am, and it's the better language. The only reason the world speaks English is because it's so primitive even trained monkeys can speak it.
"Fernsehstube" (Television salon) in nazi germany around 1936. Nazi germany was the first country in the world with regular television broadcasts starting in 1935 and broadcisting about two hours each day from 8pm to 10pm. You could only watch tv at these television salons which were installed in post offices around berlin. It never was very popular except during the 1936 olympics which were broadcast live. Other than that it was considered the poor people's cinema since it was free to go. There was never a mass production of tv sets.
Interestingly, though, it wasn't called "tube" until the 1890's when the first deep-level line was built using the famous tunneling shield, precurser to the TBM. The early lines were right below the ground since they ran steam trains and needed lots of ventilation.
>run subway using steam trains
>what could possibly go wrong
The absolute M A D M E N ran a steam train recently along one of the original lines to celebrate the 150th aniversary of the underground.
Except that english is famous for being difficult to learn. So nice bait I guess? Seriously, romance languages are cake compared to english.
I find it kind of funny that you think english is primitive though, considering it's a germanic language and you like german so much. Which dialect of german do you speak, by the way? Standard german? If so your opinion on the subject is a fucking joke.
Don't know for sure, but looks like Finnish battleship Väinämöinen to me.
>Except that english is famous for being difficult to learn.
except it isn't, it's known for being quite easy to learn. It only has one type of article ("the") and doesn't even differentiate between levels of courtesy, which even spanish does ("tu/usted")
