70 Bizarre Facts about Historical Figures


At age 52 Richard Proenneke built his own isolated cabin in Alaska, and lived there for 30 years

This is fascinating.  I got sucked in. Don't usually watch YouTube videos longer than a few minutes. - "Alone in the Wilderness" is the story of Dick Proenneke living in the Alaska wilderness. Dick filmed his adventures so he could show his relatives in the lower 48 states what life was like in Alaska, building his cabin, hunting for food and exploring the area. Bob Swerer has taken the best footage from Dick's films and he has created 3 videos about Dick, "Alone in the Wilderness", "Alaska, Silence and Solitude" and "The Frozen North".

Here is Part 2

Water Chestnut or Walter Caltrops Look like Demon Food

The species are floating annual aquatic plants, growing in slow-moving water up to 5 m deep, native to warm temperate parts of Eurasia and Africa. They bear ornately shaped fruits, which in the case of T. bicornis resemble the head of a bull or the silhouette of a flying bat. Each fruit contains a single very large, starchy seed. T. natans and T. bicornis have been cultivated in China and the Indian subcontinent for at least 3,000 years for the edible seeds.

It was possible to buy water chestnuts in markets all over Europe until 1880. In northern Italy, the nuts were offered roasted, much as sweet chestnuts (Castanea sativa) are still sold today. In many parts of Europe, water chestnuts were known and used for human food until the beginning of the 20th century. Today, however, it is a rare plant. Several reasons for its near extinction exist, such as climate fluctuations, changes in the nutrient content of water bodies, and the drainage of many wetlands, ponds, and oxbow lakes. wiki

"This little curiosity is off-putting to most diners, for obvious reasons. It bears all the hallmarks of being hell-spawned, for one thing, and it looks like it could hatch into something that would attach itself to your throat and eat through your soft palate into your brain and cause you to slaughter your loved ones. The community just hasn't been desperate enough to risk demon possession, instant agonizing poisoning death, or perhaps just tasting something that combines the flavors of tar, cockroach chitin, and venom. They call them "bat nuts" or "devil pods," and avoid them, literally, like the plague.
But Gak dared me to try one, and it was one of the most startling culinary experiences of my life! Light and savory, a bit nutty. Refreshing! If I don't die, zombify, or undergo a catastrophic transformation from eating it, I might try it candied!" u/Cogitotoro

Hillary, you never see Hillary wearing shirts like this. You don't. Seriously people, look at Hillary, never wearing T-shirts. She never wears shirts like this. Never. She has terrible taste in shirts and foreign policy. When I am President, let me tell you, when I am president everyone is going to have shirts like this. u/fiddlefuckingaround

13th - Official Trailer - Netflix

The title of Ava DuVernay’s extraordinary and galvanizing documentary 13TH refers to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which reads “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States.” The progression from that second qualifying clause to the horrors of mass criminalization and the sprawling American prison industry is laid out by DuVernay with bracing lucidity. With a potent mixture of archival footage and testimony from a dazzling array of activists, politicians, historians, and formerly incarcerated women and men, DuVernay creates a work of grand historical synthesis.

Delhi, India contains approximately 16 million residents. The neighborhoods of Santosh Park and Uttam Nagar, both pictured here, are home to some of the city’s poorest people and contain its most built-up and densely populated land. Numerous studies have shown a correlation between the wealth of a residential area and its total number of trees and the amount of green space. This Overview is a particularly striking example of that trend.

Boat Crash

This is the collision between the Grand Rodosi and the Apollo S on 8 October 2010, at Port Lincoln in South Australia. It occurred as a consequence of the Chief Engineer making a mistake in engine handling such that the engine continued to run ahead even though the pilot had ordered astern. Luckily the Apollo S was unmanned at the time. It sank shortly afterward.


Elizabeth Warren goes after Wells Fargo

Pat Bagley says it best.

So okay, let’s stop simply imposing monetary fines for punishment of big money criminals. They laugh at that shit; money protects money.
What these monsters need is hard PRISON TIME, and not the type that resembles vacation spas, either (which is what they usually get).
They must be humiliated in front of the world.
We need to listen and follow the lead of Elizabeth Warren!

It should be noted that Warren is the only member of Senate Banking Committee that has not received campaign money from Wells Fargo.

From this article at —
Warren said toward the end of her allotted time to question Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf :
“Here’s what really gets me about this, Mr. Stumpf. If one of your tellers took a handful of $20 bills out of the crash drawer, they’d probably be looking at criminal charges for theft. They could end up in prison.
“But you squeezed your employees to the breaking point so they would cheat customers and you could drive up the value of your stock and put hundreds of millions of dollars in your own pocket.
“And when it all blew up, you kept your job, you kept your multi-multimillion-dollar bonuses, and you went on television to blame thousands of $12-an-hour employees who were just trying to meet cross-sell quotas that made you rich.
“This is about accountability. You should resign. You should give back the money that you took while this scam was going on, and you should be criminally investigated by both the Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission. This just isn’t right."
