Mustache man in the back creeping hard af!

Everyone is having fun. But the black kid in the suspenders? He's having the most fun.

Look closer. His date clearly swings the other way.

His date hates him with the fury of a thousand suns.

Wow, Top Gun looks so old now that I see it again

That's a civilian passenger plane....

As history has proven, one group's "stolen" is another group's "conquered."

Damn that was classy as hell.

My Great Grandfather who fought with First Cavalry out of Lexington Kentucky 1864/65. He had 22 kids and lived until 1916. I am 43 and own the holster for that pistol.

Id tell him his stache was uneven, but that seems like a bad idea.

That mustache killed twelve men while he slept.

Two wives. My grandfather was born #20 in 1912 when ggpa 62. It sounds fake when I write it down, but it's true.

The Commonwealth stayed loyal to the nation and proved to be a dagger in the side of the rebel cowards.

Your Great Grandfather’s mustache, alone, probably led to Tennessee’s surrender.

I love old photos of dogs -- body of a sheep and head of a lab -- haven't seen a dog like that in my lifetime.

Hey there, Mister!

Looks like a damned O'Driscoll

And he was probably like 16 years old in that photo?

Making your way in the world today takes everything you've got.

Gee, it’s amazing how they had all that booze ready to go as soon as prohibition ended.

Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot.

Dude third from the right just got caught.

It looks like a scene from a buddy cop movie.

Koreans work hard as fuck and think insurance is a scam. You ain't taking their shit without a fight bro.

10/10 would not mess. Denim on denim = deadly

Roof Koreans were some of the best Americans.

They worked far too hard to get where they were to watch it get looted or burned by others.

My great-grandfather was devastated by the death of his horse and asked to be moved from the cavalry to the newly-established RAF. It's nice to see, in its way, that he wasn't alone in his love and respect of animals in the armed forces. Thanks for sharing this!

Even more were lost in WW2...

People think of the WW2-era German army as this mechanized wave of tanks and airplanes sweeping over Europe, but in reality due to their fuel poverty nearly all of their logistics were horsedrawn - unlike the American army which had fuel to spare for trucks, the Germans needed almost every drop to run their tanks and airplanes.

The memorial in England says “they had no choice.”
