24 Terrifying, Thoughtful and Absurd Nursery Rhymes for Children
In more repressed times, people were not always allowed to express themselves freely, for fear of persecution. Gossiping, criticizing the government or even talking about current events were often punishable by death. In order to communicate at will, clever rhymes were constructed and passed around to parody public figures and events. The first nursery rhymes can be traced back to the fourteenth century. Other nursery rhymes don't seem to carry a particular message at all, but convey a macabre sense of humor. Humpty Dumpty Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,Humpty Dumpty had a great fall,All the King's Horses and all the King's menCouldn't put Humpty together again. In children's books, Humpty Dumpty is portrayed as a large egg, usually dressed like a little boy. Ring Around The Rosie Ring around the rosyA pocketful of posies"Ashes, Ashes"We all fall down! This rhyme dates back to the Great Plague of London in 1665. Baa Baa Blacksheep Baa baa black sheep, have you any wool? For Want of a Nail Related:  Hidden History

The Real Reasons We Dropped Atom Bombs on Japan By David Redick Due to the recent 70th anniversary of dropping two atom bombs on Japan, there has been a lot of discussion about why we did it. American ‘Patriots’ claim it was necessary to ‘save lives’ by avoiding an invasion of Japan. This is the standard false pitch from our self-serving ‘leaders’ in DC. I offer the info below as adequate proof that we did it for other less noble reasons. 1) It all started with FDR’s concern that Germany might beat England and France, and emerge as a world power, and thus be close to, or stronger than, the USA. To create an ‘incident’ to justify going to war, FDR poked Japan for years (ended scrap metal shipments to them, etc. ) until the Japanese military demanded the Emperor allow a strike on the United States. 2a) Amazon info on Stinnett’s book is: 2b) More comments on the Stinnett book from Publishers Weekly: Historians have long debated whether President Roosevelt had advance knowledge of Japan’s December 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor.

Royals told: open archives on family ties to Nazi regime | UK news Buckingham Palace has been urged to disclose documents that would finally reveal the truth about the relationship between the royal family and the Nazi regime of the 1930s. The Sun’s decision to publish footage of the Queen at six or seven years old performing a Nazi salute, held in the royal archives and hitherto unavailable for public viewing, has triggered concerns that the palace has for years sought to suppress the release of damaging material confirming the links between leading royals and the Third Reich. Unlike the National Archives, the royal archives, which are known to contain large volumes of correspondence between members of the royal family and Nazi politicians and aristocrats, are not compelled to release material on a regular basis. Now, as that relationship becomes the subject of global debate, historians and MPs have called for the archives to be opened up so that the correspondence can be put into context.

Fundació Joan Miró Comics, Quizzes, and Stories The Polio Vaccine Cancer Cover-up The polio vaccines developed in the 1950s by Jonas Salk and Albert Sabin allegedly eradicated one of the most feared diseases of the 20th century. The media hailed the success of these vaccines as a modern day miracle. However, the polio story has a much darker side that has mostly been kept a secret. Both Sabin’s live virus vaccine given orally and Salk’s inactivated virus vaccine given by injection were far from perfect. In fact, in 1955 the vaccine used in Berkley, California infected some 200 children, leaving several dead and many paralyzed. Yet this incident proved minor compared to what was later discovered. In order to grow large quantities of the poliovirus, scientists needed to use Rhesus monkey kidney cells, which carried many different viruses. The virus found in this particular polio vaccine was SV40, or simian virus. When the government became aware of this, it was downplayed for fear the public would stop accepting vaccination. In 1959, Dr. In 1960, Merck scientists Dr.

La despensa de Leonardo | Blog del Departamento de Dibujo del IEDA OpenSSL Command-Line HOWTO OpenSSL Command-Line HOWTO The openssl application that ships with the OpenSSL libraries can perform a wide range of crypto operations. This HOWTO provides some cookbook-style recipes for using it. Paul Heinlein | February 24, 2016 The openssl command-line binary that ships with the OpenSSL libraries can perform a wide range of cryptographic operations. It can come in handy in scripts or for accomplishing one-time command-line tasks. Documentation for using the openssl application is somewhat scattered, however, so this article aims to provide some practical examples of its use. Just to be clear, this article is strictly practical; it does not concern cryptographic theory and concepts. The nature of this article is that I’ll be adding new examples incrementally. How do I find out what OpenSSL version I’m running? Use the version option. $ openssl version OpenSSL 1.0.1e-fips 11 Feb 2013 You can get much more information with the version -a option. How do I get a list of the available commands?

Papal Bull Background A Papal Bull is a formal document issued by a Roman Death Cult Pontiff upon a major act of law, curse or claim to extend the power of the Cult over its claimed domination of the world, all nations, all people, all law and all religions. All legitimate Papal Bulls were issued on human skin, usually the skin of a sacrificed child, or some famous heretic. The first legitimate Papal Bull is probably around 1136 called Ex commisso nobis by Pope Innocent II in the claimed excommunication of the Saxon (German) Pope at Magdeburg. Unfortunately, many of the key Papal Bulls are missing (such as 1249) and most have been deliberately forged over the centuries onto calf or sheep skin, to re-write history and hide their original form on human skin. Original source and concept of Papal Bulls The Latin word vellum from vellus means not only a fleece or hide but also “human” skin, indicating that at the Roman times the meaning of this form of writing material was still known.
