Not sure if Joseph McCarthy back from the dead.

Yowza...I'd completely forgotten about the Bell Beefer. The franchise by my high school would even sub in a hotter sauce upon request. I'd probably have some vein poppage if I had one today though.
I know this is the most recent of history but I’m sure this one will go down as a classic. I’m still trying to comprehend the power in the photo, in all senses. Incredible.
I'm just waiting for the Memes.
Ask and ye shall receive.
Sorry, completely off topic but it was requested.
Yeah, I'm expecting most of them to be anti-Trump.
Most of the ones I’ve seen have been pro-Trump but I guess that stems from the conservative media I consume.
I prefer this one, where it looks as though Macron has resorted to conversing in Italian
Jonathan, Seychelles giant tortoise
Jonathan was hatched in 1832 and is currently the oldest living animal in the world.
He is now blind but is maintained through a special diet prepared for him. The female tortoise with whom he has been mating since 1991 is now believed to be male.
He lives on the island of Saint Helena, having arrived there in 1882.
If only he could understand human development and he would have seen a lot of change in his time.
I hate when that happens.
World's greatest trap.
A 'trap', as in a guy who passes off as a girl.
Good to know...I guess.
Rural Baseball In California, 1860s
For what it's worth, baseball is related to cricket, rounders and other European games, and was not invented by Abner Doubleday.
The earliest references to baseball of any kind date to the late-1600s in England, date to the late-1700s in North America and in fact, the first reference to a more recognisably modern game of baseball in North America is actually found in Ontario, now in Canada but then still a British colony, in 1838.
The Battle of the Somme, also known as the Somme Offensive, was a battle of the First World War fought by the armies of the British Empire and France against the German Empire. It took place between 1 July and 18 November 1916

An ocean liner docked at New York bound for Bremen.
A class photo including the renowed philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein (second row from top, third from the right). However, his classmate (top right corner) is arguably even more well known...
Wittgenstein, whilst smart, had a reputation for beating the out of kids iirc.
Some would say the far-right corner.
I did Nazi that joke coming...
I did Nazi that one either.

Donald Campbell piloting Bluebird K7 on 4th January, 1967.
In his bid for an 8th water speed record (aiming to go beyond 300mph) at Coniston Water in the Lake District, Cumbria, the hydroplane experienced stability issues having been clocked at 320mph at the measured kilometre on his second run. It started to bounce out of the water, then eventually lifted up and into a backflip, eventually crashing nose first and cartwheeling across the water. Campbell died instantly: his body, and K7, were never recovered from Coniston Water.
After a 22 year restoration program led by Bill Smith (who had lead a dive team to recover the wreckage and Campbell's body in 2001), Bluebird returned to the water on 4th August, 2018. The engine was successfully restarted whilst the hydroplane was afloat on Loch Fad, on the Isle of Bute in Scotland. It will eventually be housed in a purpose built wing at the Ruskin Museum near Coniston Water.
