I wonder how many college graduates today would recognize more than one of those names?



(I'm almost as bad, I only know 6 of them)

I knew all but a couple, but I'm fascinated by that period of time and the exploits of most of those men.

I'm a "physics guy", so I know a lot of those names.  I couldn't have picked most of them out of a line-up, though.

OP, the one that gets me is the one of the space walker.  Can you imagine what was going on in his mind?!?!

Here's some more...













(a bloodless, non-gory photo of the holocaust that shows the organized brutality of it all)













During the 1930's in Germany, it took this much cash to buy a loaf of bread due to hyper inflation.

As a Fellow Linesman that's one of the worst day's because most of the time they just don't come back.  That much juice usually leave pretty disabled if you do come back.

The worst is knowing that  in the back of your mind.

Quoting from Wikipedia

""Kiss of Life" showed a utility worker, J.D. Thompson, suspended on a utility pole and giving mouth to mouth resuscitation to a fellow lineman, Randall G. Champion, who was unconscious and hanging upside down after contacting a high voltage line. Champion survived and lived until 2002, when he died of heart failure at the age of 64. Thompson is still living. The photograph was published in newspapers around the world."

It would seem that some people have a completely different understanding of "thought provoking".

You have to be able to think in order to provoke it, I guess.

I drive right infront of that building at least 4 times a day.

The casinos fought over it. The city blocked the sale. DPD was supposed to move in to the first 6 floors. That never happened. The city has been telling the owner to tear it down. He has told the city to fuck off as the taxes are paid. The building is so tough and so well built that it would cost 7-8 million to demolish it. The owner get $10,000.00/ day from Hollywood for TV and movie production there.

If they sold it to a casino it would have been wonderful. But like all things in Detroit, the elected people are dumb, blind, ignorant, racist and only see 1 inch in front of their noses on a single issue.
