Tin Foil Time

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Friday, November 22, 2013 in History, Open Thread

Fifty years ago today, President John Kennedy was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald, who was in turn shot by Jack Ruby, who was sentenced to death but died of a pulmonary embolism before his appeal could be started. This series of events spawned a SHITLOAD of conspiracy theories.

Which spawned a SHITLOAD of books.

And a SHITLOAD of movies and documentaries.

Frankly, I am sick and tired of grassy knoll crap. But it does get to be entertaining. So in light of it being Open Thread Friday, what are your favorite conspiracy theories regarding the assassination of JFK? New or old, doesn’t matter. Just remember that talking about theories regarding current events is verbotten. I won’t be responsible for the NSA seizing AG’s server ;)

Astonishing Aerial Photographs from WWII

Posted by ArmedGeek on Monday, November 23, 2009 in History, War

peiper over at Barking Moonbat EWS found some absolutely kickass aerial photos from WWII.

I grabbed this one because I’m a big fan of the movie A Bridge Too Far. As well as a fan of the huge iron balls it took to attempt Operation Market Garden.
