The Tsavo Man Eaters were a pair of lions that killed 100s of workers building the Kenya-Uganda railway. It's a real life horror story.

What are the oldest debts still being paid today?

"The British Consols (war bonds) of the Napoleonic War are still being paid, but there are even older Treasury Gilts from the South Sea Bubble in 1720. As noted by Piketty, the UK has never defaulted on any debt - unlike most other nations. The very oldest active bonds, however, were issued in 1624 by the Hoogheemraadschap Lekdijk Bovendams, a Dutch water board responsible for upkeep of local dykes, and verified to be still paying annuitites in 2003 (Berk, DeMarzo, et al, "Fundamentals of Corporate Finance", 2014)."

Few moments before the assassination of Prince Ferdinand in Sarajevo (Today Bosnia-Herzegovina). He was the ruler of the Austrian Hungarian Empire and he was shot by Garlic Princip (A Serb and an hero for many and a criminal for others). The events will lead to First World War.

Princess Anastasia, goofing off with fake teeth

I didn't believe this was real at first, but nope— turns off Anastasia loved playing the role of goofball.

^ How far away were they, I wonder? I'd be rather anxious if I were standing there.

 

Edit: Looking at Google Maps, it's about 25 miles.

St Helens was nothing compared to Mount Toba, of course (approx 75,000 years ago).

 

It almost wiped humanity out...

And obviously, of course, Toba will be nothing compared to Yellowstone. Then again, by the time it would have blown we'll almost certainly have refined it.

Princess Anastasia, goofing off with fake teeth

[Image]

I didn't believe this was real at first, but nope— turns off Anastasia loved playing the role of goofball.

 

Everytime I'm reminded of Grand Duchess Anastasia, I am reminded of the single most disgusting thing I've read about in history when I was researching her. It was during the disposal of the bodies of the romonavs after they were executed.

 

 

While the Chekas threw the bodies in the ditch, some of them, the despicable low-lives that they were, actually touched the naked bodies of the duchesses. One of them said in a interview, quote: “I felt the empress myself and she was warm” another one said “Now I can die in peace because I have squeezed the empress’s breasts”.

Long-march.jpg

 

This is a picture of a Chinese leader addressing the survivors of the long march. A retreat by communist forces on foot for over 9000km in 370 days from the Nationalist forces they were fighting during the Chinese civil war. The communist forces were far fewer than that of the Nationalist forces, and they were surrounded by the Nationalists on all regions. During the march, they had to evade numerous warlords, and Nationalist forces. Of the 80,000 that participated, only 8000 lived to see the end of the march.

 

The long march allowed the communists to be isolated, and away from conflict with other factions in the civil war. Eventually, the communists grew and strengthened their forces, especially during the second sino-japanese war when both Nationalists and Communists signed a truce to fight the Japanese. This then led to the winning of the Communists, and the route of the Nationalists to Taiwan.

 

In my eyes, the Chinese Civil War is the greatest civil war in modern history. The greatest "civil war" in history would be the Three Kingdoms, a conflict after the fall of the Han dynasty that killed 37,000,000. Chinese history is best history.

A little fact I learned today: adjusted to modern currency, the Dutch East India Company was worth $7.4 trillion in the 17th century.
