(Credit: IWM North/MH 26395) Between September 1940 and May 1941, the home front in Britain came under attack by German bombs. The raids, which targeted large cities and industrial areas, resulted in 43,000 civilian deaths, and completely destroyed thousands of homes and workplaces. Now, the Blitz is the subject of a new interactive exhibition at the Imperial War Museum North. Titled Horrible Histories®: Blitzed Brits, the exhibition includes more than 200 photographs, objects, posters and film clips from the Blitz. Visitors also have the chance to learn about the personal stories of the people who lived through the bombing.

The Irish Slave Trade – The Forgotten “White” Slaves - They came as slaves; vast human cargo transported on tall British ships bound for the Americas. They were shipped by the hundreds of thousands and included men, women, and even the youngest of children. Whenever they rebelled or even disobeyed an order, they were punished in the harshest ways. Slave owners would hang their human property by their hands and set their hands or feet on fire as one form of punishment.

Miss Atomic Blast. Talk about propaganda! What a way to get the nation behind the notion of annihilating another culture. Sex does indeed sell!
Linda Lawson, Miss Atomic Bomb 1950, Las Vegas, Nevada
It can reasonably argued that Las Vegas in the 1950s was the strangest place on earth. There was a Miss Atomic Bomb beauty pageant.

The first outbreak of the Black Death reached England in 1348 through the Dorset port of Melcombe Regis, brought, it is thought, on an Italian merchant ship. Within a month of its arrival in Dorset, it had spread throughout the county and across to Devon and Somerset, reaching Bristol on August 15th. Citizens of Gloucester, the next large town north refused to allow anyone from Bristol to enter their city, believing that the disease spread on people's breath.
"Since her death in 1979, the woman who discovered what the universe is made of has not so much as received a memorial plaque or obituaries mention her greatest discovery…Everyone knows Charles Darwin discovered evolution and Albert Einstein discovered the relativity of time. But when it comes to the composition of our universe, textbooks simply say the most abundant atom in the universe is hydrogen.

intrepidus-scolere: serenity2132: amordragon: Since her death in 1979, the woman who discovered what the universe is made of has not so much as received a memorial plaque. Her newspaper obituaries do not mention her greatest discovery. […] Every high school student knows that Isaac Newton discovered gravity, that Charles Darwin discovered evolution, and that Albert Einstein discovered the relativity of time. But when it comes to the composition of our universe, the textbooks simply say that the most abundant atom in the universe is hydrogen. And no one ever wonders how we know. Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin, a truly extraordinary woman. So I take it she was given the Hedy Lamarr/Rosalind Franklin treatment? Fucking assholes. So you know what? BADASSLADYSIGNALBOOSTGO! I GOT SO MAD ONCE I FOUND OUT ABOUT ROSALIND FRANKLIN.
-Cecilia Payne Gaposchkin- Since her death in 1979, the woman who discovered what the universe is made of has not so much as received a memorial plaque. Every high school student knows Newton, Einstein (of course no one has even heard of Mileva Marić..) etc..But when it comes to the composition of our universe, textbooks simply say that the most abundant atom in the universe is hydrogen.

Eating. Humans have done it since the beginning of time. And ever since the first caveman realized he was too tired to grill a wooly mammoth after a long day of hunting, other cavemen were willing to do it for him. (For a price, of course.) While the US doesn’t quite date back to the caveman, it’s still got plenty of old restaurants.

COLORADO Buckhorn Exchange Denver, CO (Est. 1893) If only cash advance stores and pawn shops were as forward-thinking as Buckhorn founder Henry H. Zeist, who used to give out free beers to railroad workers who exchanged their paychecks for gold at the Rio Grande Railroad Yards across the street. Now the restaurant – which holds Colorado liquor license no. 1 – pretty much only exchanges money for food and drinks, but still makes up buffalo steaks, elk, and quail for an authentic rocky mountain dining experience.
