Do you see any familiar faces? Yes, Adolf Hitler was the best man at the wedding of Joseph and Magda Goebbels.
Now you might wonder, who in the world are Joseph and Magda Goebbels and why is Hitler the best man at their wedding? Paul Joseph Goebbels was actually one of Hitler's closest associates and his devoted friend. They were so close that in Hitler's last will and testament, Joseph was appointed Reich Chancellor of the Nazi Party.
As everyone knows, Hitler committed suicide on April 30th of 1945. With the same principles in life, people expected Joseph to likewise take his own life rather than to be taken by the enemy. But no, he did more than that. On the night of their death (yes, their because he committed suicide with his wife since she was also a member of the Nazi), he asked a dentist to inject their children with morphine to make them unconscious. Later, an ampule of cyanide were crush inside of the children's' mouths. So yeah, he literally took his family with him to the afterlife.
Yes, that is who you think it is. Terminator himself! This is Arnold Schwarzenegger during one of the body building competitions he joined.
Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger is undeniably one of Hollywood's biggest stars... and not to mention one with a tongue twister last name! Who would ever thought that a professional bodybuilder from a small village in Austria would be where he is now? It's literally a "rags to riches" for this Austrian who migrated to the United States in 1968 to live the American Dream.
He started weight training at a young age of 15. He then won Mr. Universe when he was 20 years old. Not only did he win Mr. Universe, he also won Mr. Olympia seven times. So naturally, he caught the eye of those in the film industry.
His breakthrough film? Conan the Barbarian in 1982. But of course, he is credited for the iconic role of The Terminator which led to a franchise with a total of 4 installments. He also starred in Commando, Predator, Total Recall, Kindergarten Cop, and much more.
In case you didn't figure this one out -- this is actually the mummy of King Tut. Yup, the infamous Tutankhamun of the 18th dynasty of Egypt.
The modern world barely knew of the boy pharaoh Tutankhamun until archaeologist Howard Carter discovered his tomb in 1922. Now this is where things will get a little crazy and we assure you that just like us, the things we're about to tell you will totally remind you of Brendan Fraser's The Mummy franchise.
So apparently, genetic testing has confirmed that King Tut comes from the lineage of Egypt's great pharaoh, Amenhotep II. At an early age of 9, he succeeded to the throne. Yes, he was just 9 years when he took power. Crazier enough is that on the same year, he married Ankhesenamun. Ankhesenamun was actually his half sister, the daughter of his father by Nefertiti. King Tuth died at age 19. He was burried in the Valley of the Kings.
What else makes King Tut popular? Three words -- "the mummy's curse". It was said that many unfortunate events happened right after the tomb of King Tut was discovered. According to the legend, anyone who dared to open his tomb would suffer the wrath of the mummy. All the hype started with the death of Lord Carnavon (the person who financed Howard Carter's expedition). What was scarier was that the exact moment he died, all the lights in Cairo went out.
No, this guys hasn't gone crazy. He's actually paid to do this. Say hello to your friendly neighborhood helmet tester. Yep, this is a football helmet prototype tested by man
Back in the days, there was no headgear for football. For some weird reason, players grew their hair long on the belief that it would protect their heads. It wasn't until 1896 when football headgear was introduced. George Barclay gets the credit for it. He made this piece of headgear known as "head harness". Well this technically didn't look anything like the helmet we have now as the head harness was literally just 3 thick leather straps that was worn as harness around the head.
Innovations were introduced in the following years. In the 1920s, the helmets were widely used in football and they were made out of leather. However, these provided very little protection as these weren't sufficiently padded. They were also very uncomfortable because they absorbed a lot of hit.
So yeah, whoever the dude in the photos is -- he needs to be given credit. That's one huge risk to take for the future of the helmet!
This is Walter Ernest O'Neil Yeo. He's an English sailor in World War 1. He was the first ever person to get a skin transplant.
Walter is an English man who signed up for the Royal Navy around the 1902. During the Battle of Jutland in 1986, he was severely wounded while manning guns aboard HMS Warspite. He lost is upper and lower eyelids.
In 1917, Walter was treated by no other than Sir Harold Gillies -- the known father of what we know today as plastic surgery. Sir Harold Gillies was the first man who used skin grafts from undamaged parts of the body in a skin grafting technique he called as "tubed pedicle".
Walter was given a "mask" that covered his face and eyes. As this was done way back in the early 1900s, you could just imagine how long the process was. The multiple-stage surgery started in November 1917 and after the third stage, it was completed in 1918. But he had to undergo another operation in 1921 for further improvements.
Ever wonder what's his secret? This.
Cassius Clay Jr. actually trained this way. More popular known as Muhammad Ali, the superstar boxer trains in a pool at the Sir John Hotel, Miami
Who doesn't know Muhammad Ali? He's one of the most celebrated sports figures from the 20th century. This champ started training at the age of 12. By 18, he bagged his first gold medal in the 1960 Summer Olympics.
To date, he is the only three-time lineal heavyweight champion (winning the title in 1964, 1974, and 1978). Not only that, he's the only boxer to be named Fighter of the Year by The Ring magazine for six times. The titles don't stop there. He's also Sports Illustrated's Greatest Athlete of the 20th century, and BBC's Sports Personality of the Century.
