The Americans Are Coming -15 by andrielisilien
The Americans Are Coming -15
Guess what?! Nah, I'm too excited to let you guess so I'll just tell you.

I'M gOinG To tHE UK tHis suMMEr!!:excited:  Squee! excited happy Ultra Excitement Omg I gets present  Hamtaro Mouse Emoji-03 (Squee) [V1] EXO : Kyungsoo Fangirling APH HRE Squee X3 Emote :eeeee: OMGsqueeeee....  Olan Dance

I've been planning it for over a month with an old friend as part of a study abroad program he's doing.  The tough part was the wait in getting enough people to join.  When I found out that it was official I literally grabbed my closest friend and danced around the room with her screaming.  It took her a minute to figure out what was going on LOL

Watch out Kirkland brothers because this American is coming!APH America: Sparkle Glasses Hetalia America (PARTY) 
Mine Turds -15 by andrielisilien
Mine Turds -15

Oh would you look at that, another history comic. :la:  I haven’t done this in forever.  I’ve missed it as I went through the stages in creating this (collecting information, scribbling down a rough draft, etc).  This WW2 fact presented itself to me over the Internet and I can’t stop laughing about it.  So today you get to learn about this crazy plan of the Allies that worked marvelously.


For some odd reason camel dung was a good luck charm for the Germans while in North Africa during World War 2.  They made a habit in running over the stuff with their tanks which the Allies noticed.  Weird tradition alright but Jasper Maskelyn (British magician) had a stroke of genius with this.  As part of his long list of wartime deceptions (dummy troops, fake tanks, etc) Maskelyn created land mines disguised as these turds that were so desirable to the Germans.   You know what happens when a tank runs over a mine, right?  No more tank and the pathway gets ruined as well.


Now here comes the funny part.  The Germans were able to catch on to this deception and so they would avoid camel dung that was fresh.  Well, the Allies caught on to their catching on and altered the appearance of the “special mine” to have tank tracks.  So it seemed safe to run over because it looked like another tank went over it before.  The Germans went for it all the same.  They just couldn’t help themselves, they HAD to run over that poop no matter what and the British took advantage of that to the fullest.  So much for good luck.


I found dozens of websites about this which are easy to find but the spark of inspiration came from The Good Mythical Morning Show: 7 Surprising Uses For Poop… (This fun fact is at 5:25)

So, I found an interesting little British plane that could, and did in WWII: The Mosquito.

Also, what WWII battles stand out to you the most?

Do you mind looking at one of my journal entries, please? 

I'm currently looking goods songs about summer and I just want your opinion on my selections since I know you're a bit of a music person. You don't have to listen to all of them, but it will be greatly appreciated if you did nonetheless.
