THIS ROADHOUSE CHILI WAS UNEXPECTEDLY ZESTY
Hazel Ying Lee was a Chinese-American pilot who flew for the United States Air Forces during World War II.
The thing I like about this feature from 1942 is the hint that Triceratops are doing their part for the defense of America.
I want to see that movie now, of course.
I had a Triceratops landlord once and he was really over-the-top patriotic, you know? He would always yell at me to put the flag up in the mornings and take it down at night, which I guess HE couldn’t do because he didn’t have DIGITS or something. Anyway I always did it because I was scared of the horns. Also I had to recite the Pledge of Allegiance every time I dropped off my rent.
…and then when he was drunk, he’d put on his tri-corner hat (naturally) and yell “The British are coming, the British are coming! One if by land, two if by sea, three by my horns, they won’t get by me! Buurrrup.”
In January 2010 the former Massachusetts governor proudly cast a ballot for Republican Scott Brown in the special election to replace the late Sen. Ted Kennedy. He didn’t own property in the state at the time, and had registered to vote listing his son’s unfinished basement as his residence. Massachusetts law defines a residence for voter registration purposes as “where a person dwells and which is the center of his domestic, social, and civil life.” Anyone found guilty of committing voter fraud faces up to five years behind bars and a fine of $10,000.
On one hand, he almost certainly didn’t live there and therefore cast a fraudulent vote; on the other hand, the mental image of Romney living in an unfinished basement smoking weed and watching Netflix in his sweats is pretty funny.
Night witches: WWII Soviet women pilots who flew the most badass, daring bombing missions in rattletrap planes. Because combat is for girls.
for those not in the know, night witches were russian lady bombers who bombed the shit out of german lines in WW2. Thing is though, they had the oldest, noisiest, crappest planes in the entire world. The engines used to conk out halfway through their missions, so they had to climb out on the wings mid flight to restart the props. the planes were also so noisy that to stop germans from hearing them combing and starting up their anti aircraft guns, they’d climb up to a certain height, coast down to german positions, drop their bombs, restart their engines in midair, and get the fuck out of dodge.
their leader flew over 200 missions and was never captured.
how the fuck is this not taught in every single history class ever
Thing is, I would totally read this comic.
The only thing that would make it better is if it was a woman hero (but not Supergirl) in the costume.
I can only dream of being this cool.
Her name is Makpal Abdrazakova and she’s the only female eagle hunter in Kazakhstan.
“Eagle hunter” is officially the coolest occupation ever.
(“Eagle hunter” as in, the same way as “falconer”, right?)
