The sign of intelligence is that you are constantly wondering. Idiots are always dead sure about every damn thing they are doing in their life.

The consumer lives surrounded not so much by things as by fantasies. He lives in a world that has no objective or independent existence and seems to exist only to gratify or thwart his desires.

To practice five things under all circumstances constitutes perfect virtue; these five are gravity, generosity of soul, sincerity, earnestness, and kindness - Confucius

The Japanese paratroopers went through a number of standard issue weapons in their time. Initially issued the Type 38 Carbine, it proved to be unwieldy, so a few attempts at a proper paratrooper rifle were made. The first was a Type 38 modified with a folding stock, but it was found to lack durability. This was quickly replaced with the Type 100, a modified Type 99 with a detachable barrel, but it wasn’t much better.

The final step in development was a purpose built takedown rifle, the Type 2, which went into service in May, 1943. Used by both the Naval and Army airborne units, it was meant to either fit in the trooper’s chest bag, or else carried in two small sacks hitched by a line to the leg.

98 year old dobri dobrev, a man who lost his hearing in the second world war, walks 10 kilometers from his village in his homemade clothes and leather shoes to the city of sofia, where he spends the day begging for money.

though a well known fixture around several of the city’s churches, known for his prostrations of thanks to all donors, it was only recently discovered that he has donated every penny he has collected — over 40,000 euros — towards the restoration of decaying bulgarian monasteries and churches and the utility bills of orphanages, living instead off his monthly state pension of 80 euros.

This guy is so… awesome. Amazing. Inspiring.
