There is a lot more to history than some of the famous photos that we have all seen in textbooks.
Sometimes, the monotony of those same glimpses into history over and over again can really put a damper on learning about the past, but there are some interesting facts and moments that the books often leave out.
Here are fifty rare historical photos that usually don’t make it into history books, but should.
#1 Ann Frank’s father
Here is an image of Anne Frank’s father, Otto, coming back to visit the attic where they hid from the Nazis. He was the sole survivor in the family.
#2 The US Supreme Court in session
This photo was taken in 1937 by a woman who had concealed a camera in her handbag. Cameras were not allowed in the Supreme Court. As far as anyone knows, this is one of only two photographs that have been taken when the court was in session.
#3 “Human Fly” George Willig
This photographer captured George Willig scaling the exterior of the World Trade Center’s South Tower in 1977. The climb took three and a half hours and resulted in his arrest as well as $1.10 in fines.
Tattoos aren’t for everyone. But for those that choose to get them, they’re a beautiful way to show off your love or passion about something or simply a way to use your body to display art. However, some people seem to forget that tattoos are forever.
Here are 55 tattoos that are so cringe-worthy it almost hurts.
At first you want to laugh…then you want to cry…and then you’re laughing again.
1) Jon Sand?
We don’t know if this person is an actual ‘Game of Thrones’ fan or not but they certainly have a sense of humor about the cult-like program.
2) Permanent argyle socks
This guy clearly likes rocking his tattoos in public for all to see – even though they’re absolutely hideous. Permanent argyle socks? Why though?
3) This is why you don’t plagiarize
“Some guy tried to copy my tattoo artist’s work, nipple included!” said one Reddit user. Now he gets to live his life knowing that his nipple is on some other man’s arm. And that guy knows that he has some other guy’s nipple tattooed on him. Wow – what a circle.
4) It’s actually really quite good…
Even though this M&M Eminem tattoo is absolutely ridiculous, the artist actually did a really great job. We’re sure whoever has this tattoo gets some laughs at parties.
5) Don’t just live luxury…become luxury.
This guy is apparently a big fan of Louis Vuitton. So much so that he tattooed the iconic print all over his entire skull.
Weddings are stressful and sometimes they bring out the worst in people. They can also be full of mishaps.
After all the planning and worrying, it feels like there’s so much at stake on your wedding day that it’s hard to relax.
And let’s face it, sometimes those bad things happen and you can either laugh them off or let them ruin your day.
Most of the brides you see here have recovered since their wedding snafus, although we hope there was someone there to comfort them and tell them that it was all going to be ok.
We sure want to give them a hug after looking at these photos.
1. White on white
This photo went viral to the point that the bride was forced to explain that her mother-in-law was actually a really nice person who had just bought the most budget-conscious dress she could find, not realizing her faux pas.
We still can’t believe someone would do this and not realize their mistake though.
2. Falling for you
These two fell not only once but TWICE during their first dance!
Talk about going head over heels!
A bruised bride is that last thing you want.
3. Welcome to the family
This dog knew exactly what was going on and wanted to make sure his new dad realized that mom was still bulldog territory.
So he peed on her dress during the vows.
If rain on your wedding day is supposed to be good luck, then is falling in a lake EXTRA good luck?
We just really hope this didn’t happen before the ceremony.
5. There goes the bride
Speaking of wedding day water fails, maybe we should just all agree to stay off docks for photos.
This would have been a nice photo had everyone not almost drowned.
