Want to know what an atomic bomb sounds like? Time index 2:54 "Operation Upshot-Knothole ANNIE nuclear test, 1953"

Rare footage of a nuclear test, conducted in 1953, wherein the audio has not been synchronized with the detonation. It's also unique because the ambient sounds of the military personnel in attendance have not been stripped.
An Artist Counted Every Atomic Explosion On Earth And Shows Them All In A Matter Of Seconds — Isao Hashimoto decided to visualize all the nuclear detonations in the history of time. This doesn't start to get terrifying until it just. Doesn't. Stop. (Which is around 1956 at the 1:47 mark for those playing the terrifying home game.)
Time Lapse of Nuclear Bombs
TIME LAPSE MAP OF EVERY NUCLEAR EXPLOSION EVER ON EARTH Japanese artist Isao Hashimoto has created a time-lapse map of the 2053 nuclear explosions which have taken place between 1945 and 1998. Each nation gets a blip and a flashing dot on the map whenever they detonate a nuclear weapon, with a running tally kept on the top and bottom bars of the screen. It starts really slow — if you want to see real action, skip ahead to 1962 or so — but the buildup becomes overwhelming.

George Washington (February 22, 1732 – December 14, 1799) was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, serving as the commander-in-chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War. He also presided over the convention that drafted the Constitution, which replaced the Articles of Confederation. The Constitution established the position of President of the republic, which Washington was the first to hold.
October 11, 1976 - 177 years after his death, George Washington was appointed General of the Armies of the United States. Public Law 94-479 - approved by president Gerald Ford - stated that this grade was "to have rank and precedence over all other grades of the Army, past or present". #history #usa #washington
If TMZ was around in colonial times, it would probably sound a lot like this tumblr blog. "Major Hottie Washington is on a mission to befriend local Indians to gain their [human shields] support in case the Brits and Frenchies cat fight over Ohio. Oh, and did we mention he is SINGLE??? But back off, ladies, he’s ours!!!!" perezhamilton.com #presidentsday #georgewashington #history

US Civil War Infographic poster. Yet another mistake regarding Missouri. We were 'technically' in the Union but simultaneously had an Confederate government and supported the Confederacy. Most people in SW Missouri were CSA sympathizers. Missouri fielded regiments for both sides of the war, not just Union, not to mention the Bushwhackers, which were another entity entirely.

✯ 10th Century Sword ..Probably Scandinavia.. The skillfully decorated hilt and blade indicate that this sword was carried by a warrior of high rank, perhaps a Viking chieftain or a Frankish nobleman. The braided copper wires on the pommel may represent an earlier Scandinavian custom of tying a talisman to a sword hilt. The pattern-welded blade was forged of intertwined rods of steel and iron, a technique that produced a tough, resilient blade with a distinctive swirling pattern on its surface.✯
