"Horsemanning, or fake beheading, was a popular way to pose in a photograph in the 1920’s. Sometimes spelled horsemaning, the horsemanning photo fad derives its name from the Headless Horseman, a character from “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.”

Stromae - Papaoutai

Last year the most popular video on French TV and the number one song in France and Belgium was “Papaoutai” by Belgian singer Stromae. The tune and rhythms are appealing and unusual; the video is compelling and, ultimately, moving. Though the title sounds like it could be a word in an African language, it is actually meant to be understood by French speakers as meaning “Papa, où t’es?” which translates as “Dad, where are you?” The song and the story of the video refer to the absence of Stromae’s father, who was killed in the Rwandan genocide of 1994. The plaintive cry of the singer who feels the absence of his father is also expressed in the child in the video who begs his mannequin-like father to come to life.

Bobby Sands Street, Iran

Following Bobby’s death on hunger strike Iran renames the street that the British Embassy is located to Bobby sands Street. This obviously meant all mail being delivered to the embassy has to be labelled with Bobby’s name. The embassy has since moved its main entrance so that it is on a different street.

Circus strongwoman Katie Sandwina 
"Holding her husband overhead had become a popular feat, and to add to that, for the finale Sandwina lifted three men."

Strong and gorgeous! :D
Also her dad would offer a reward of 100 marks to any man in the audience who could beat her in wrestling. No one ever succeeded. XD During one of these she met her future husband of 52 years. XD

If you ever feel like you’ve screwed up, just remember that in 1348 the Scots thought it would be a good idea to invade England because the English were weakened by the Plague. They subsequently caught the plague themselves, went back to Scotland, and killed half their own population.
