Video tells the story better than a single picture 

 

One of our species greatest achievements.

 

 

 

I was thinking of posting a picture of Phan Thi Kim Phuc OOnt more famously known as Napalm Girl to illustrate the best- the moon landing and the worst of our species,

however this is a family forum.

 

Phan is now a Canadian citizen.

Thought provoking and heartbreaking...the image of Alan Kurdi, the three year old Syrian boy washed up on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea.  Makes me cry every time I see it.  Can't bring myself to post image of it, but I'm sure everyone here has seen it.

50 years ago Soviet engineers lit this hole on fire expecting the natural gas to burn off within 3 days. It is still burning. It is now a famous tourist attraction known as "The Door to Hell".

...as the title to this thread states "thought provoking" photos. I am not kidding when I say all Canadians should find this photo thought provoking and disturbing.

Oh, why did you have to do that to this great thread?

 

I have opinions with cultural appropriation but not in line with the majority. Maybe because I am absolutely covered in tattoos. Many of them are from different cultures. I have learned that according to some I shouldn't have gotten..Kanji, Sanskrit, First Nations, Christian, Buddhist, Celtic ( oh, I think i'm allowed that one),  Tahitian, Maori... mixed with  bunch of other images and iconography that I have found attractive.

 

So, at the end of the day. I feel if you are showing respect to the culture I don't see an issue. Not unlike the host of the party from your pic, JT's friend that didn't have an issue with his attire. I guess we are all learning and that was a different time. Suppose that it was nice for him to apologise.

You are correct. I should not have gone there in this cool thread and I won't again.

 

How about this then...

This is a snip of a video and is not an actual photo. This is one of the three videos released by the pentagon about UFOs operating all around the US Navy fighter jets. The UFOs have been around for decades (probably much longer). Tons of revelations have come out in the last ten years with many high level officials in both private companies and governments (including the US government) admitting UFOs are real, that they operate with physics humans don't yet understand, and that (they claim) we don't know what they are.

 

I am shocked that more people don't discuss this on a daily basis. 

 

US Navy pilot Commander Fravor is an extremely intelligent pilot who presents as being honest and believable. He saw a 40 foot "tic tac" shaped UFO hover over the ocean and then disappear in the blink of an eye.

 

The next few years will be interesting as world governments must admit to their citizens UFOs are real. Very exciting times lol.

Now, on this. You've got a friend in me.

 

Pentagon is like....'We got UFO's here'....people are like....'Ok, Whateves'

 

It's very strange that more dont talk about this,
