30th anniversary of this...

 

 

King's Cross Fire

 

18th November, 1987.

 

The King's Cross fire was the worst ever fire to occur on London's underground tube system. It occurred at King's Cross, one of the largest and busiest stations on the network, and started after a cigarette was dropped into wooden escalators. 31 were killed and 100 injured; it led to major changes on the London Underground.

It's funny, because at the very end of the graph, vinyl goes up just a little bit.  I've seen different vinyl players recently in some department stores.  Seems there is a fad going around.


Pope Francis said that atheists are still eligible to go to heaven, to return the favor, atheists said that popes are still eligible to go into a void of nothingness.

Nah, I own vinyl but don't have a record player. When you really like a band, saw them live and spent time socializing with them before and after the show, buying vinyl is like having a token of that experience. And if I just really like a band I'll buy their vinyl for my bookshelf, it puts something physical to how much I love their music.

Column of American POWs in Paris-1944. Just look at this, the war is almost over, but French townsfolk are still mocking and spitting to their future liberators to demonstrate their loyalty to German "ordnung". Few months later, these same people will become passionate antifascists and "resistance fighters":

 

I don't know is there English version... anyway, everything is clear without translation:
