We were supposed to take a family vacation there a year or two ago. The fact that we didn’t is probably my fault.

This!

All women of a certain age need to see this:

Old Tattoos

The body of a woman needs no adornment. All these young ladies with their fashionable tattoos, will some day look like this fat ol’ broad. That they can’t see that this is their future amazes me. Again, if you ever meet a young lady contemplating tattoos, show her this picture.

There is a whole series of photos.

Update: When I was in Red Square in 1980, GUM was not lit up like that. In fact, at night if you visited Red Square, you almost had the place to yourself. I’m sure there were cops keeping an eye on me, it was, after all, the height of the Brezhnev era, but they kept their distance.

Awesome

Going through this photo collection at Slate, reminded me of this post which provided a link to this collection of photos.

Scouts and Guns

Old Picture of the Day: Scouts and Guns.

From the post:

I don’t know about the summer camp you went to, but mine definitely did not have a 50 Cal BMG at the shooting range, although I think it is a great idea. Nothing would rejuvenate interest in Scouting like some automatic weapons at the shooting range!

I got the pleasure of sending about 10 rounds of 50 cal downrange while in the Marines. It was very cool. That gun is amazing. The sound that thing makes ranks with the sound of Ducatis and V8’s.

That blog is well worth checking out.
