This thread (which I'm pinning) is for images, videos, articles and general discussions of history/pre-history.

 

It can be used for small/minor contributions, which perhaps don't warrant their own entire thread.

 

Let me start by posting this famous photo, taken exactly 26 years ago:

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tank_Man

 

"A man who stood in front of a column of tanks on June 5, 1989, the morning after the Chinese military had suppressed the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 by force, became known as the Tank Man or Unknown Protester. As the lead tank maneuvered to pass by the man, he repeatedly shifted his position in order to obstruct the tank's attempted path around him. The incident was filmed and seen worldwide. Currently, there is no reliable information about the identity or fate of the tank man."

How great a public speaker Mackenzie King was!

 

"I should say nothing at the moment of the greatness of our agricultural exports... *stares harder at teleprompter* and. Other. Exports of other products."

 

 

In this speech, he's trying to increase the casualties in Dieppe by boring everyone to death.

This tank can be considered a symbol of the nuclear war that never happened. Its construction is optimal for opposing to shock waves, four-crawler track undercarriage - to move in the conditions of a nuclear winter...

"Since we first emerged, a few million years ago in East Africa, we have meandered our way around the planet. There are now people on every continent and the remotest islands, from pole to pole, from Mount Everest to the Dead Sea, on the ocean bottoms and even, occasionally, in residence 200 miles up - humans, like the gods of old, living in the sky."
