I normally don’t tag people but this is so cute and I think dichotomized would like this.

U.S. Martin Luther King Jr being attacked as he marched nonviolently for the Chicago Freedom Movement, 1966, which was the most ambitious civil rights campaign in the North of the United States, and lasted from mid-1965 to early 1967.
Steven Stayner was only 7-years-old when he got into a car with paedophile Kenneth Parnell. For the next seven years Steven was given drugs and liquor, and was sexually assaulted daily. Steven eventually escaped, taking another abducted boy, 5-year-old Timmy White, along with him. He refused to let Timmy suffer years of abuse like himself. His abductor served only five years in prison for the kidnapping, but was arrested later when he tried to purchase a young boy. Stayner died in 1989, at the age of 24, in a motorcycle accident while driving home from work.
A picture released on April 7, 1961 taken during World War II in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp shows Nazi leader and war criminal Adolf Eichmann (2nd R) smiling while German officers cut a Jewish prisoner’s hair locks. The document taken by a Nazi officer was found in the camp after it’s liberation on April 15, 1945. Hidden in Argentina, Eichmann was captured in a street of a Buenos Aires suburb by a team of Mossad and Shin Bet agents on May 11, 1960 and taken to Israel without being detected by Argentine authorities. Eichmann was tried, sentenced to death and executed in Jerusalem on May 30.

Fetus in Fetu
Fetus in fetu is a rare condition in which a fetus becomes enveloped by its twin in the womb. While fraternal twins result from two separately fertilized eggs, identical twins are the product of a single fertilized egg that separates. The separation of that fertilized egg doesn’t always go smoothly; conjoined twins are one example of an imperfect separation. Fetus in fetu, which occurs very early within a pregnancy, results when instead of separating, one fetus becomes trapped inside the other one. The trapped fetus begins acting like a parasite on its host, tapping into the twin’s blood supply to stay alive. If the fetus grows, it can cause great pain for its carrier.
Most cases of fetus in fetu are caught when the host twin is an infant, though there have been cases of people in their 30s and 40s carrying their own twin. One notable case occurred in India: A 36-year-old man looked visibly pregnant, but when doctors operated on what they thought was a tumor, they found a malformed fetus with limbs, genitalia and hair [source: ABC News]. This man’s example is a rare scenario, though, as about 90 percent of cases are found before an infant is 18 months old [source: Hoeffel et al.]. The babies usually have an abdominal mass, though sometimes the lump can be found other places, such as the brain or the scrotum.
For those of you eyeing your full-length mirror, bear in mind that this condition is extremely rare, with fewer than 100 examples documented in medical literature [source: Newsome]. Doctors estimate that it happens at 1 in every 500,000 births [source: Goldman]. The scenario does happen in equal rates to males and females, and though it usually involves only one fetus, sometimes multiple fetuses are absorbed. When they are removed, the fetuses are about 1.5 to 9.5 inches (4 to 24.5 centimeters) in length and weigh between 0.04 ounces (1.2 grams) and 4 pounds (1.8 kilograms) [source: Hoeffel et al.]. While various body parts may be present, the fetus is always anencephalic, meaning that it’s missing major parts of its brainand skull. Once the mass is removed, the host twins are usually completely fine.
It’s worth noting that some researchers believe that what may appear to be a case of fetus in fetu might actually be a teratoma. A teratoma is kind of tumor that can also look like a malformed fetus, yet it’s just a group of cells that can develop skin and teeth. Sometimes there may not be enough evidence to tell which has occurred, though an instance of teratoma is more common than that of fetus in fetu. Currently, if the fetus has some evidence of a vertebral column, the case is considered to be fetus in fetu.

Over 200 Dead Bodies On Mount Everest
The area above 26,000ft is called “The Death Zone” due to the atmospheric pressure. The air is so thin that recovering the dead bodies is impossible so they are left where they died.
There have been many cases where people had to leave behind some people that were still alive due to low oxygen. Sergei and Francys Arsentiev met that fate. Two climbers heard Francys screaming for help on the side of a steep cliff. She was seperated from her husband. The climbers had to leave her behind or they would have died themselves.
Some were lucky enough to die in their sleep, while others suffered injuries from falls and died slowly from hypothermia.
Found in Japanese folklore, they appear to look like normal human beings during the day, but at night they gain the ability to stretch their necks to great lengths.
Some legends say that the rokurokubi were once Buddhist who broke various precepts of Buddhism and were transformed into these demons. They are often sinister and feed off the blood of others who broke the precepts or human men.
