https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Castle_Itter


Something worth mentioning is, Kurt-Siegfried Schrader, a Waffen SS Captain was put in charge of the defense of the Castle against the pro-Nazi SS that were attacking the castle.

Another summary http://www.terriwangard.com/2016/10/ger ... st_12.html


It's easy to think the Wolfenstein game was based on such a story, though apparently, it was castle Wewelsburg, which would make more sense, as it was practically a shrine to the SS.

Norman G. Baker - 1930's Quack Cancer 'Doctor' responsible for people's death

Best article?

At least 44 people died at the Crescent Hotel during its era as a “health retreat” according to death records

500 Human Specimens Found Buried At Crescent Hotel In Eureka Springs
https://www.5newsonline.com/article/new ... e0e635e1de

Eureka Springs had been a hub of ill people coming by the thousands and expecting a miracle cure (where medical quacks were well accepted) and would die in large numbers. The late 1800's had buildings burn to the ground because they were made of wood, resulting in many deaths.

PDF - Page 7 get's into some details
https://arkansaspreservation.worldsecur ... g%20Street.

It was also at a time when radium was considered curative, and so the springs are actually considered toxic (and illegal to drink from due to a sewage water leak, though apparently the water was recently tested and might be pretty safe.)
https://www.eurekasprings.com/historical/springs.html

When I attended a 'Ghost Tour' they mentioned when people died at the hotel/"hospital" they would wait until nighttime to bring them to the basement and disposed of it in some way, and it was at this time that the bodies of the victims were autopsied and had the tumors removed (which purportedly was the evidence needed to indicate his cancer therapy was a success since no tumors were found.) I'm still not sure why the information regarding this time period weren't properly disclosed, as it seems apparent the guy should never have lived well into old age retiring on Jay Goulds yacht, while also after prison was close to returning to radio broadcasting to spread medical conspiracies and raising money (which parallels televangelist Jim Bakker in some way.)

Kind of reminds me of the time period in which anyone with the title 'Doctor' was not much different from Frankenstein, and this guy was possibly worse than Dr. Mengele:

Mysorean rocket: 'Over 1,000 rockets from Tipu Sultan’s time found' which would have been just prior to 1800

A bladed version was bought online: https://www.ashokaarts.com/shop/extreme ... ipu-sultan

The battle with Britain inspired them to make their own version several years later.

********

During the 1600s incendiary were used in an elaborate woven ball that would have cost about $2500 to build each (36 guilders from what 100 equals $6K USD) as indicated in its use on a 'Storm Spike' https://www.wikiwand.com/de/Sturmspie%C3%9F


https://www.wikiwand.com/de/Brandballen

The balls were spiked with rods that got hot to the extent, that they would detonate while attempting to retrieve and remove it, which would trigger a projectile just like a handgun bullet.

Queen Nzinga (1583-1663) fought for 30 years to abolish Portuguese control over Angola, abolishing the slave trade. . . but. . .

https://www.thefemmeproject.com/all-blo ... een-nzinga

In 1622, during negotiations with the Portuguese governor, Nzinga was refused a chair. Understanding her political disadvantage, she ordered one of her servants to get down on the ground and create a perch for her to sit on. Settling on the servant’s back, she proceeded to launch into negotiations. When the discussion ended, Nzinga is said to have slit the servant’s throat in front of the Portuguese governor, perhaps in an attempt to establish her power and authority. Her diplomatic efforts ultimately secured a temporary peace with the Portuguese.

Other accounts of Queen Nzinga state that she maintained a harem of 50-60 men, dressing them as women. The men in her harem would fight each other to the death for the right to share her bed for the night. Those fortunate enough to win the contest, and her sexual attention, were put to death the following morning.

Religion is likely based on fertility cults. https://www.thattheworldmayknow.com/fer ... -of-canaan

Some suggest that Christos refers to anointing oils, and that Peter/Petras is a reference to a fertility/phallic object used in ancient Judaism (referred to as the "High Place"

After it the lunar module was malfunctioning from innability to process the calculations for landing, Buzz Aldrin manually landed (4 miles from the landing site,) and after careful depressuration to prevent damage to the airlock, Neil Armstrong knocks the engine start breaker switch with his suit, which they were only able to resolve by inserting a pen into it.

That would have been a terrifying experience.

House exactly as it was left from the 1950s

Also, an ancient cistern in Denmark shows some ghost anomalies (scroll to the left as well where it appears to be the form of someone standing, though I don't believe this would have been delayed sufficiently for someone's body to be captured.)

Harry Houdini banned fortune-telling in Washington D.C. (which may have inspired James Randi to do similar things.)
