This picture of one of the landmark Azrieli Towers in Tel Aviv was taken last night. The lights on the building spell out "Shema Yisrael, Hashem Elokeinu, Hashem Echad" (Hear O' Israel, G-d is our G-d, G-d is One). This can be seen by Israel's air force pilots as they fly out on their missions to Gaza as well as the hundreds of thousands of motorists who pass by the busy highway adjacent to the towers.

Two border patrol officers attempt to keep a fugitive in the US, 1939

I find this one in particular pretty curious, strange, how the woman mows the lawn as nothing had happened while a soldier takes cover in her garden in front of her.

Northern Ireland, 1973. The incongruities of daily life in the urban war zone. For years, the people of Northern Ireland lived in a strange and strained symbiosis with the occupying British army.

Jesus! When I read "over a decade ago..." I had to do a double take, I forget that III came out so long ago.

I've seen a building similar to that before.

The "Time Traveling Hipster" at the 1941 re-opening of South Fork Bridge. Most people believe the photo is legit, as his sunglasses can be traced to the 1920s, and his shirt is believed to be a sports jersey. Also, note Cole Phelps up front.

Construction of the USS Macon airship, 1932

The Macon was an airship built and operated by the United States Navy for scouting and also served as a flying aircraft carrier, launching Curtiss F9C Sparrowhawk biplane fighters.

It was 20ft shorter than the Hindenburg, but it was the largest helium-filled airship ever built.

In 1935, Macon was damaged in a storm and went down off Californias Big Sur coast. Of the 76 (I think... Can't remember now) men on board, only 2 didn't make it.

I dunno how awesome anyone else finds this, but I found it awesome. I had no clue how massive the Greater Tokyo Area is until I saw it put into perspective like this.

London is about the biggest city I've been to, and having been across the UK by train, I can see why Japan has even faster trains. Imagine having to go from one end of that city to the other for work every day.

I don't think I'd mind it. Although I've read of people saying the same thing and also coming from major cities like myself, and finding themselves overwhelmed in Tokyo because of its sheer size and how areas like this are just never-ending as you go further and further.

At least it's clean, unlike Sao Paulo, a comparable megacity that honestly looks bland and kinda polluted and dirty.

It's a nice picture, but I don't really have any desire to go there.

Round 3 for stuff found at my place! (First it was the awesome white and pink spider, then that massive green beetle, now this thing...)

So today I found this hairy caterpillar in my garden covered with white cylindrical things:

utf-8BSU1HXzIwMTQwODI3XzE0MTQzNi5qcGc_zp

utf-8BSU1HXzIwMTQwODI3XzE0MTY1MC5qcGc_zp

utf-8BSU1HXzIwMTQwODI3XzE0MTUyMy5qcGc_zp

Never seen anything like it, so I googled only to see that those things are in fact cocoons from a Braconid wasp. The caterpillar was parasitized by the wasp, which lays its eggs beneath the skin. When the eggs hatch, the larvae feed on the caterpillar (basically eating the caterpillar alive from the inside out), and once outside, they pupate, spinning those cocoons. They then ride on the doomed caterpillar until the adult wasps are ready to emerge.

Fuuuuuuuuuuuck! Sucks to be that little bugger...

While I'm at it, here are some bushpigs behind my house lol: (not really awesome, but I might as well post it because why not)

They spotted me and one of the two adults charged at me before they all ran away. Bastard!
