Two Centurions lead their legionaries into battle during Sulla’s First Civil War, 88 BC.
Flying from Casablanca to Dakar in 1925, French military photographer Marcelin Flandrin captured this photo in the Atlas Mountains. This is the last known image of a wild Barbary Lion.
The species massively declined in the mid-1800s due to human settlement in northern Africa pushing them out of coastal areas and depriving them of food sources. Then bounties for lion’s heads finished them off by the 1880s, except for in small pockets of remote wilderness.

bro i will not take this sicilian erasure, meat was expensive and for special occasions only in sicily and then a ton of sicilians came to america where meat was cheap so they started putting it in everything; spaghetti and meatballs was invented by first-generation southern italian immigrants responding to food security after generations of scarcity + the convenience of year-round canned tomatoes
Louisiana resident, Tessica Brown became internet famous this week when she ran out of hairspray and made the extremely poor decision to use Gorilla Glue spray adhesive to style her hair instead of her normal product. Because the internet is such a strange and ridiculous place, Brown’s Instagram post about her hair debacle generated millions of interactions.
Despite Brown’s mistake being entirely her fault, good people on the internet reached out to help her and humanity showed its good side — briefly. While the help and kindness dwindled, however, the conversation devolved into arguments over her incident — which she solely did on her own — as an act of racism.
The Gorilla Glue debacle then transitioned from an act of racism into an act of litigation as lawyers likely convinced Brown to sue the company. Even though Brown didn’t buy the Gorilla Glue on the beauty supply aisle, legal action is being taken against the company for Brown’s decision to use it in her hair — despite clear warnings.
Despite the bottle clearly warning people not to get it on their eyes, skin, or clothing, because the label says “multi use” and doesn’t explicitly mention “hair,” the vulture class ambulance chasers convinced Brown she has a case against the Gorilla company.
Apparently even forks will now have to come with explicit warnings that say don’t ram in your eye. Common sense, in 2021, is dead.
While the Gorilla Glue debacle continued to trend on Twitter for days on end, events which seriously affect the lives of Americans took place, relatively unreported in the mainstream media and shunned by Big Tech’s algorithms.
The Free Thought Project has compiled a list of these stories so that we can attempt to inject them into the dumpster fire that is the social media conversation on Gorilla Glue.

These pieces of shit are trying to distract you from things that actually matter.
It’d be stupid of me not to talk about it and post a video of it.
I found a cool YouTube for this that makes this scene cooler for me:
“Lore-wise, chanting “death” had a double meaning. Yes, they were charging towards certain death. But also in the Tolkien universe, death is actually a good thing. You go to a place of eternal happiness and bliss and even the elves don’t know what happens to you. Morgoth and Sauron both worked to corrupt death’s meaning however and make men fear it. This is actually how Sauron destroyed Numenor, making men fear death. So when Theodan and company chant “DEATH!” at the top of their lungs, they’re actually defying Sauron/Morgoth and demonstrating faith to Eä. So it is a war chant, but it’s also supposed to be symbolic of mankind’s defiance of evil.”
Turned 34, initiating my next rotation around the sun by painting Battletech miniatures.
Soon I’ll be a real MechWarrior, me.
Anti maskers mad because of the truth ? Im tired of the same "muh freedom" what freedom ? Freedom to be absolutely fucking retarded and ass backwards ? All it reads is "i am free to be stupid"
Heh, well said!
Roast the German Type XXI submarine.
The Elektroboot, a submarine design so advanced it changed the face of submarine warfare after WW2, but also so advanced there was no way in HELL the germans could made it work in the late stages of WW2, they should have instead focused on snorkel development, better torpedoes, and even the proposed V-1 launch submarine, but no, wunderwaffen it was, and so they wasted precious resources in a project that never achieved anything besides making allied naval designers cream their pants once the war was over.
Whats the most batshit insane military fact that you know ? Like, cold war CIA insane level.
Off the top of my head: the He-162 Salamander, the so called People’s Fighter due to her intended role as a cheap jet fighter meant to be flown by Hitler Youths in a last ditch effort to defend Germany, was actually so insanely difficult to fly, only highly experienced Luftwaffe test pilots could do so, and even they where killed sometimes when the damn thing proved to be too much.
Thankfully fuel shortages and the war ending just a fee months after its first flight prevented the deaths of countless young pilots, whom at best would have flown a glider for a few hours before strapping in.
You often say that you hate communism and communists and terms like Latinx, yet you’re literally defending critical theory, a concept totally derived from Marxist theory?
What are you, McCarthy? I’m allowed to have layers to my views you know.

It was never used in combat.
The last 3 seconds look like a damn clip from a comedy movie. Like he needs to be quoting Team America
I’m having to post this myself because the last guy who posted it - who I don’t think actually read it - decided to twist it into a white people thing & try to get guilt reblogs
Ainu marginilization is a Japanese endeavor. it’s been happening since the Meiji era, when they’ve colonized traditionally Ainu lands, broken up their families, and desecrated their grave sites all as a part of Japan’s “one people, one language, one nation” nationalism. and it is very much alive today, despite milquetoast brushes via govt programs to “revive” ainu culture
For those not aware, since the Meiji Restoration, Japan embarked on a campaign of absorbing the Ainu, people who are native to the northern island of Hokkaido. The Ainu were not allowed to speak their native language, were given Japanese names, had their traditional religious practices banned and were not recognised as a group in Japan - it wasn’t until 2008 that the Ainu were finally recognised as a distinct cultural group.
look, i dont care what directors say in behind-the-scenes or interviews, if they dont present that information in the film, they are bad story tellers. like, we had to assume everyone attended your comiccon panel? like? no. you are bad at story telling. if a character appears with zero context, it is confusing. i am not saying spoon feed the audience, but goddamn, there are plot devices that should be there to explain why that character showed up. not just information from your twitter. i shouldnt have to absorb five layers of media for your film to make sense
Some battle damage and varnish added. The wife wanted an industrial looking lumberjacking robot that went through a “swords into plowshares then back into swords again” feel.
Accidentally made it look like a Com Guards ‘Mech, but that has fun implications for a mercenary Mechwarrior that wants to harness the feel of naming your ship the “It’s One Of Ours Sir” confusion factor.
