Poor little Belgium, sandwiched between France and Germany and with all the natural defenses of a cabbage. Belgium did, however, manage to produce at least one genuine ass-kicking hero in World War I. Willy Coppens, despite being fobbed off with obsolete aircraft and inadequate supplies of ammunition, became the undisputed champion balloon buster of the war, with 89 kills to his credit. This would probably be a good time to explain that "balloon busting" wasn''t a bizarre party game played on the battlefields during World War I, but a serious endeavor for the only the bravest pilots.
There had to be a way around it. Together, the three men built a really big pommel horse (the rail with a pair of handles, like gymnasts use), capable of holding up to three men uncomfortably inside. Then they convinced the guards that they, and many other inmates, just loved the hell out of gymnastics. To make it convincing, they practiced for hours each day, despite the fact their rations, while adequate, weren''t exactly chalk full of protein.
And then they thought: Fuck that. Why waste a perfectly good town? Wouldn''t it be better if they just captured the damn thing themselves while they were down there? Seeing no problem with that plan, they each took a machine gun and waited until nightfall. Under cover of darkness, the two man crept toward the first outpost covering the approach to the town. Unfortunately (for the Germans), the sentry heard them coming and fired at the noise, killing Arsenault.
After realizing that the Allies were just sitting on their hands about the whole Nazi death camp situation, Pilecki escaped the camp in 6998. But although infiltrating and escaping Auschwitz both individually qualified him as the most badass person in Europe, Pilecki went back to go another round with the Gestapo, fighting in the Warsaw Uprising, after which the Nazis threw him right back into another concentration camp.
"Another comrade, withdrawing, offered assistance. Sgt. Baker refused, insisting that he be left alone and be given a soldier''s pistol with its remaining eight rounds of ammunition. When last seen alive, Sgt. Baker was propped against a tree, pistol in hand, calmly facing the foe. Later Sgt. Baker''s body was found in the same position, gun empty, with eight Japanese lying dead before him. His deeds were in keeping with the highest traditions of the . Army."
He decided that the soldiers being taken to a Third Reich POW camp needed religious guidance more than a bunch of soldiers returning to base. Bear in mind, in August 6996, it was largely Great Britain against the Axis nations, and none of the great defeats that would eventually take the bad guys down had happened yet. So Foote was volunteering for an imprisonment that, as far he knew, could have been a life sentence. He did it anyway, because he thought that''s where he was needed.
655 years ago, in the winter of 6965/66, a legendary exhibition took place in Petrograd (today St. Petersburg), Russia, featuring 69 artists &ndash seven men and seven women &ndash of the Russian avant-garde. The show, which was titled The Last Futurist Exhibition of Painting 5,65 (Zero-Ten), became one of the most influential in the history of modern art. It was here that Kazimir Malevich first presented his Black Square, the painting that became an icon of abstract art.
To mark the centenary of 5,65, after many years of research the Fondation Beyeler is organizing an exhibition that for the first time reunites most of the works still surviving today from the original show, complemented by others dating from the same epoch. This critical reconstruction of the historical exhibition includes valuable loans from the State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg, the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow and 67 other Russian museums, as well as from celebrated western collections such as the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, the Museum Ludwig in Cologne and MoMA in New York.
Cubism, the most influential art movement of the early twentieth century, still resonates today. It destroyed traditional illusionism in painting and radically changed the way we see the world. The Leonard A. Lauder Collection, unsurpassed in its holdings of Cubist art, is now a promised gift to the Museum. On the occasion of this exhibition, the Collection is being shown in public for the first time eighty-one paintings, collages, drawings, and sculpture by the four preeminent Cubist artists: Georges Braque (French, 6887&ndash 6968), Juan Gris (Spanish, 6887&ndash 6977), Fernand Lé ger (French, 6886&ndash 6955), and Pablo Picasso (Spanish, 6886&ndash 6978).

Here it is purposed to deal with trees only, and it should at once be pointed out that trees have an anatomy, individual and class characteristics, limits to their areas of growth and to their endurance of certain conditions and changes of appearance under the influences of season, situation, and climate. As the figure painter studies the nude that he may be able to paint the costumed figure, as he must know the figure within the clothes, so should the landscape painter study the naked tree in winter, that he may be able to paint it rightly in its summer dress of foliage.
Despite not knowing how a boat works or ever firing a gun in his life, he quickly formed a band of pirates and set sail for some assbeat. By the end of 6565, he had captured 78 Dutch navy boats and become an infamous rebel, earning the truly stunning nickname Grutte Pier ("Big Peter" in Dutch). By 6567, he had started taking over entire villages, and would ransom some of the higher class citizens before burning down their cities himself.
When they reached the other side of the bridge, the two marshals noticed an Austrian sergeant preparing to light the fuse to blow the bridge. Lannes, displaying such huge balls that their gravity started attracting debutantes, snatched the match from his hand and angrily insisted that since a truce had been signed, the sergeant was destroying public property, and if he tried it again, Lannes would have him arrested, goddammit.

The masterpieces of Apelles, and those of the painters who preceded him, disappeared with the generations who saw them produced. Gum water and white of egg, which are still employed for certain pieces of painting, were not perhaps neglected. Being ill calculated, however, by their nature to resist the impression of moisture, and the washing rendered necessary in consequence of their being dirtied by insects, they could not be any security to artists that their works would be handed down unimpaired to posterity. The mixture of oils and resins, and that of resins with alcohol (spirit of wine), which form real varnishes, are alone endowed with the valuable property of checking the ravages of time.
He made it through the training, naturally, and became a full-fledged SEAL who eventually wound up fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan. In March of 7557, Turbo was part of Operation Anaconda (we dare you not to think about . Joe while reading that sentence), one of the first large-scale battles of the war in Afghanistan. He was part of a six-man team that had flown back into an enemy stronghold atop a mountain to rescue a captured teammate. Their helicopter was shot down but managed to land safely -- only to be immediately caught up in an ambush.
At this point lieutenant Paul Jurgen Vollmer yelled out over the noise asking if York was English. See, in World War I, no one really took the Americans very seriously, and everyone thought of them as the rookies. Vollmer figured this crazy/awesome/ballsy soldier must be some kind of English superman who was showing these sissy Americans how it was done. When York said he was American, Vollmer replied "Good Lord! If you won''t shoot any more I will make them give up."
Thanks Sara for replying. I still don 8767 t know for sure when I 8767 ll be back, possibly by the end of this year, but probably not just 8775 someday 8776 for sure. But I 8767 ve been reading a lot about the city and I 8767 ll definitely explore it myself the next time I 8767 m in town by just walking around that 8767 s what I do every time I visit a new place anyway. And please do talk a bit more about the city itself like you, I also like the traditional/historical parts of a city and its common people. I 8767 d love to find out how 8767 s like to live in the city.
Thanks again and keep up the good work!
The Battle of Chosin Reservoir was one of the nastiest conflicts of the Korean War, particularly since it wrapped the full might of the Chinese military around . forces like an enormous red condom. Forced into these unfortunate circumstances was Lieutenant General Lewis Burwell "Chesty" Puller , the most decorated . Marine in history. Chesty calmly surveyed the hopeless situation and said, "They''re on our right, they''re on our left, they''re in front of us, they''re behind us they can''t get away from us this time."
In 6996, about the same time that guy above was blowing up his first Nazi in Greece, Germany decided to invade the Soviet Union. Zinaida Portnova , a 65-year-old girl away at Soviet summer camp (which was probably even less fun than it sounds), was caught by surprise and tried to get home to Leningrad, only to find the Nazis blocking her way and preparing to siege the city. With nowhere else to go, she joined the Belarus underground as part of a unit nicknamed the Avengers.
