The Salem Witch Trials of 1692-1693 were by far the largest and most lethal outbreak of witchcraft hysteria in American history. Yet Salem was just one of many incidents during the Great Age of Witch Hunts which took place throughout Europe and her colonies over many centuries.

The biggest death tolls over the shortest periods of time. The number used for influenza is conservative at 30 million when estimates are between 30 and 100 million (read The Great Influenza for more details), but still.

Far from comprehensive bt interesting.Via the Fall 2013 issue of Lapham's Quarterly (the theme of which is "Death") comes a morbidly fascinating way of measuring the loss of life.

On August Japan surrendered to America in WWII. During the celebration, Alfred Eisenstaedt snapped a now iconic photo that we're still celebrating today.

This photo is one of the most iconic photos of history. However, the nurse being kissed in this picture said after that she didn't know the man and that he was acting drunk. He assaulted her and we consider this such a sweet photo.
