The African Renaissance Monument in Senegal, larger that the Eiffel tower and the statue of liberty .. Things you don’t see in mainstream media.  @KrystVegaNeteru

This is beautiful.

I think this picture better illustrates the size of that monument.

I never even knew this existed this makes me so happy to find out about it

Is this made out of stone or some other material? Because holy shit wow that is HUGE.

That photo makes it look like it was taken in the 1960’s…even though the statue was built in 2010.

I’m sorry, I think it’s hilarious that mostly everything in the south is ‘grits.’

Meet Simon, the world’s first smartphone. Released in 1994 by IBM, Simon had a touchscreen (though if you prefered, a stylus worked too). He had apps loaded via external memory drive. He could predict your next characters as you typed. Simon cost $899 and IBM sold 50,000 units.

Flight History

senior-crown:

Al White and Colonel Joe Cotton begin their pre-flight inspection of the Valkyrie. Today’s plan isn’t a taxi test, or an engine run-up. White and Cotton will lift the XB-70, the heaviest plane ever built, into the skies above the Mojave Desert and fly from North American’s Palmdale (“Plant 42”) facility to Edwards Air Force Base, the Air Force’s Flight Test Center (AFFTC).

This whole website is really great, but here’s the section on the first flight, 50 years ago today.

XB-70 VALKYRIE

The North American Aviation XB-70 Valkyrie was the prototype version of the proposed B-70 nuclear-armed deep penetration bomber for the United States Air Force’s Strategic Air Command. Designed in the late 1950s, the Valkyrie was a large six-engined aircraft able to fly Mach 3+ at an altitude of 70,000 ft (21,000 m), which would have allowed it to avoid interceptors, the only effective anti-bomber weapon at the time.

Today is the 50th anniversary of the first Valkyrie flight!

Known locally as the “Beer Brush” because of its angularly jutting, bright red crown and usage as a restaurant, today the building is seen as an outstanding example of post-war architectural modernism in Berlin.

Final sentences:

[He put out his hand, and quite noiselessly the great window widened down to us, and the splendid nearer prospect of that dreamland city was before me.] “This is our home,” he said smiling, and with thoughtful eyes on me.

from In the Days of the Comet

And so, in hope and solitude, my story ends.

from The Island of Dr. Moreau 

And I have by me, for my comfort, two strange white flowers—shrivelled now, and brown and flat and brittle—to witness that even when mind and strength had gone, gratitude and tenderness still lived on in the heart of man.

from The Time Machine

And strangest of all is it to hold my wife’s hand again, and to think that I have counted her, and that she has counted me, among the dead.
