Yep I remember when this all happened... back in 2012, that Napoleon and his army made a huge mistake.. you would have thought he learned from Hitler, invading Russia is suicide 😄
yesterday at 18:43
Imagine how different the world would be had Hitler decided not to invade Russia. Britain would have been invaded. The willingness of the Soviet leadership to expend a tremendous amount of life in order to stop the Germans probably saved hundreds of thousands of American lives

People don't understand the tires are made with byproduct from making gasoline so it's not like they use oil straight from the ground!! So technically there a recycling waste byproduct of gasoline!! How much fuel, electricity, and energy would be used to convert eggshells and tomato into rubber?? What's the carbon footprint to do both and you will have your answer on to witch is better for the environment!!! Answer that!

The Battle of Fort Necessity (also called the Battle of the Great Meadows) took place on July 3, 1754, in what is now the mountaintop hamlet of Farmington in Fayette County, Pennsylvania. The engagement was one of the first battles of the French and Indian War and George Washington's only military surrender.

To believe that life does not exist anywhere but on earth is as ignorant as to believe evolution is false, to believe the earth is only 6000 yrs old and to believe the earth was created by some human like God, who took a rib out of a man and made a woman.

How did he wear them without them falling out every time he opened his mouth? He had no teeth to hook them on to. Did they even have denture cream back then? You can't tell me these teeth were easy to chew with either.
yesterday at 05:24
Think about what it must have been like to have dentures back then. No anesthetics other than brandy or rum. Also the risk of infection was severe. The dentures were poor fitting and often caused abrasive irritation and soars.

All these years I thought his dentures were made out of wood🤔 well that's what I learned back in 8th grade history class.

He questioned everything. He was charming & loved women without reserve. He had an ego the size of Mt Vesuvius ... an amazing complicated man ...

Video suggests otherwise /. It's too bad he didn't take his first wife (Malava) to fame as Pierre Curie and Marie.. Malava was math proof for all he did in the beginning.. If it's true, he admitted She was a great scientist.. it's funny though, he's right she made choices.

This reminds me of a show that surfaced called American Pickers and how a channel runs the show nearly 24 hours a day. Keep alienating your audience and you will go under just like cable will.

BS, the cornerstone is still there. Truman sent original stones, that had masonic marks in them, to various Mosonic lodges in the U.S. This was during the total renovation of the Interior of the White House during Trumans time in office.

Plank walking may be on the same historical trajectory as scalp taking, epic/saga/ tale telling. Some truth, some braggadocio. Native Americans did not originate scalp taking. It was taught to them by the men who hunted in the Northeastern wood. French, Danes and British. Europeans scalped "Indians" then the Native Americans began to scalp the Europeans.

How can a homosexual be discriminated unless they announce to the whole world their sexual orientation which is nobody's business anyway! Now Black people and Asians didn't have a choice, once they went outside, they were discriminated on the spot, they could not hide who they were which had nothing to do with sexual orientation.

Maybe so, but he's one of the worst Mafia bosses that ever lived. Seeking media attention, talking on govt. wires, brazenly challenging the FBI to convict him... The idea is to fly under the radar. Prop up other members pretending to be Dons while you lay in the shadows. Chin Gigante was a better boss with his insane act than Gotti was.

From the point of view of economics, this great piece of legislation managed to rebuild a devastated middle class by allowing returning soldiers to go to school through the G. I.

There are few pivot points in America's history, but this is one of them.
