The original Monopoly game board made by Charles Darrow. Charles Darrow reportedly made about 5000 of these and this is the only one that still exists. It is made from a piece of oilcloth and is shaped like a circle 33-inches in diameter instead of the usual square shape we all know. For about $145,000 this might be the most expensive board game ever sold!

August 10, 1945, a day after the atomic bomb was dropped over Nagasaki. Later, Admiral William D. Leahy, President Harry Truman's chief of staff wrote: "The use of this barbarous weapon at Hiroshima and Nagasaki was of no material assistance in our war against Japan. The Japanese were already defeated and ready to surrender. In being the first to use it, we adopted an ethical standard common to barbarians of the Dark Ages. Wars cannot be won by destroying women and children."
6th and 9th of August 1945 USA under the leadership of Harry S Truman dropped two atombombs on Japan in the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, claiming it is the only way to end the way. 600.000 dead within a week. This woman is breastfeeding her burnt child in Nagasaki.

I will leave what the previous pinner said, but it has been discussed below, and turns out not to be true: Humpty dumpty. real story behind the rhyme dates back to the English Civil War. Humpty was a huge cannon mounted atop a high wall-like church tower. During the Siege of Colchester, The tower was hit by enemy cannon fire and Humpty suffered a great fall. There was no fixing the cannon or the tower, and the Humpty Dumpty rhyme was born.

24 Terrifying, Thoughtful and Absurd Nursery Rhymes for Children-The same way that fairy tales and fables were meant as cautionary tales for both adults and children centuries ago, so-called "nursery rhymes" were often based on some grisly morbid fact. On the bright side, make it rhyme or add some melody to it and it becomes a little more palatable.

Preserved loaf of bread found in the ruins of Pompeii A loaf of bread made in the first century AD, which was discovered at Pompeii, preserved for centuries in the volcanic ashes of Mount Vesuvius. The markings visible on the top are made from a Roman bread stamp, which bakeries were required to use in order to mark the source of the loaves, and to prevent fraud. (via Ridiculously Interesting) (sigh) I’ve seen these before, but this one’s particularly beautiful.

With the perfect hourglass figure, backless dresses & silver tinted hair, jazz singer Joyce Bryant became known as "The Bronze Bombshell" AKA The Black Marilyn Monroe. She would become the first dark-skinned African-American woman celebrated by the mass media as a 'sex-symbol'. She made her way to the stage in 1940. It was there she gained national and international acclaim for her earthy, sultry tone and figure flattering costumes.

With the perfect hourglass figure, backless dresses and silver tinted hair, jazz singer Joyce Bryant became known as “The Bronze Blonde Bombshell.” Although the Oakland, California native was raised in a strict Seventh Day Adventist home, she made her way to the stage in 1940. It was there she gained national and international acclaim for her earthy, sultry tone and figure flattering costumes. (It was rumored that Bryant’s dresses were so tight that she had to be carried off stage at the end of her performances.) But Bryant’s sex appeal didn’t always work to her advantage; while the artist was called the “black Marilyn Monroe” her records were often banned from radio waves for being too suggestive. Yet she maintained a significant following and the chocolate skinned diva was featured on several Jet covers throughout her career.
Joyce Bryant | Joyce Bryant (born October 14, 1928) is an African-American singer and actress who achieved fame in the late 1940s and early 1950s as a theater and nightclub performer. With her signature silver hair and tight mermaid dresses, she became an early African-American sex symbol, garnering such nicknames as "The Bronze Blond Bombshell", "the black Marilyn Monroe", "The Belter", and "The Voice You'll Always Remember".
very little is known of Joyce Bryant, singer and actress. Born in Oakland, Ca., around 1920, she came to be known as the 'Black Marilyn' and the "bronze blonde bombshell," she dyed her hair with silver radiator paint before performing with Josephine Baker so as not to be upstaged; it was to become her trademark. Beautiful lady!

Ishi (born 1860?, died March 25, 1916) is the name given to the last member of the Yahi, the last surviving group of the Yana people. Ishi, is believed to be the last native American in California to have lived most of his life outside the American culture. He emerged from the wild in August 1911, near Oroville, California, leaving his ancestral homeland in the foothills near Lassen Peak.

In the late 1880s, the body of a 16-year-old girl was pulled from the Seine. She was apparently a suicide, as her body showed no marks of violence, but her beauty and her enigmatic smile led a Paris pathologist to order a plaster death mask of her face. Ironically, in 1958 the anonymous girl’s features were used to model the first-aid mannequin Rescue Annie.

Legend has it that in the late 1880s, the body of a 16 year old girl was pulled from the Seine, an apparent suicide. A Paris pathologist ordered a plaster death mask of her face. Ironically in 1958, the anonymous girl’s features were used to model the first-aid mannequin, Rescue Annie on which thousands of students have practiced CPR. Though the girl’s identity remains a mystery, her face, it’s said, has become “the most kissed face of all time.”

Just remember her in your take a cpr class ;)
Repinned: death mask known as L'Inconnue de la Seine, taken from an unidentified young girl said to have committed suicide in the Seine around 1880. A pathologist at the Paris morgue was so taken by her beauty that he had the death mask of her face made. Her enigmatic smile has been compared to that of the Mona Lisa and her face was used for the head of the first aid mannequin Resusci Anne...called by some "the most kissed face" of all time. see also: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-24534069
In the late 1800s, the body of a 16-year-old girl was pulled from the Seine. She was thought to be a suicide. A death mask was made from her gently smiling face, and plaster casts of it became a popular piece of art for home display. In 1958 the girl’s features were used to model the first-aid mannequin Rescue Annie, on which generations of students have practiced CPR. Her face, it’s said, has become “the most kissed face of all time.” google "L’Inconnue" for more.
