    The Justified episode I'm watching right now surrounds purported paintings by Hitler. Here's one he actually did.
    Vienna State Opera House, Adolf Hitler, 1912

    It is said (in real life) that he was somewhat skilled technically, but lacked creativity, feeling, and couldn't draw faces..

    Identical twin brothers Josh and Jeremy married identical twin sisters Brittany and Briana. Both couples gave birth to male babies at the same time. Although technically they are cousins, children are genetically brothers. It gets weirder: both families live together in the same house.

    I thought that this was a rather nice and ethereal photograph taken over the Moray Firth in the Scottish Highlands by John Trueman on Monday evening. ... It is being pushed on a couple of sites as being possibly ET/UFO related, but as you can see from this more [honest] article, the guy who took the pictures from a nearby beach knows that it's no such thing! ... in fact the display comes from ... in the guy's own words ...
    Like Close Encounters of the Third Kind: Photographer captures 'otherworldly' lights in the sky - Hull Live (hulldailymail.co.uk)
    ... don't know what equipment they are testing? ... but i'll bet that it was an awesome sight to see whilst walking the dogs on the beach! :Thumbsup:

    Cheers.

    This photograph was taken in Los Angeles sometime between 1940 and 1945, and shows two war workers exhibiting safety gear. The lady on the right wears a plastic "bra" that protects the chest (National Archives, Identifier # 522882)
    .... but where are their hardhats ? :p

    Cheers.

    I read about first 50 pages from Mein Kampf in order to get into Hitler's head. He applied for stipend to become art painter, but they told him that he's more of an ahchitect type then artist type. So he missed a year, but then he run out of money and had to find a job. He worked on a bulidin sites as an unscilled labourer. When one takes into the account how charismatic he was and how much talent for mobilising other people he had, it would had been better if he became architect.

    Nobody can doubt he was quite compentent as a painter.

    There is a fictional history film that explores Hitler becoming an artist. I haven't seen it myself.

    "Max is a 2002 British-Hungarian-Canadian fictional drama film, that depicts a friendship between a Jewish art dealer, Max Rothman, and a young Austrian painter, Adolf Hitler. The film explores Hitler's views which began to take shape as the Nazi ideology; while also studying the artistic and design implications of the Third Reich and how their visual appeal helped hypnotize the German people. The film goes on to study the question of what could have been had Hitler been accepted as an artist. The film was the directorial debut of Menno Meyjes, who also wrote the film."

    According to his own autobiografy, Hitler picked up heitrit of Jews by reading "yellow press" or trash newspapers. At that time press was almost completely free and they were running really wild with crazy race theories.

    ... shoehorned and sterilised into politically correctness, for right or wrong reasons. But difference between then and now is realy large. I wish I can find some samples of books and newspapers from the late 19-th, early 20-th century to illustrate. It was an unhinged period ( from today's perspective ), people were using radioactive fluorescent pain as cosmetics, race theories are rampant, narcotics were free to use ( like Coka in Coka Cola ), even in UK people were free to have any firearms they wanted etc. etc.

    Hitler actually mentions and quotes books he read and things were totally over the top. I think Mein Kampf is very informative read and it explains extremely well many of his later decisions, particularly the idiotic ones like fighting on two fronts. I thouroughly recommend it.

    I think the term 'yellow journalism' originated around the time of the Spanish American war in 1898 in regard William Randolph Hearst. Must've been printing stories about Cuba containing Nazis or weapons of mass destruction.

    Where is it? Sounds like British humor.
