Welcome to Derinkuyu, an underground city that once housed up to 20,000 people. In the Cappadocia region, famous for its cave dwellings and underground villages, Derinkuyu stands out for sheer size and complexity. Locals began digging in the 500s BCE. The city consists of over 600 doors, each of which can be closed from the inside. Each floor could be closed off as well. And just to make attacking completely impossible, the entire city was deliberately built without any logic. Its maze-like layout makes navigating the city nightmarish for unfamiliar invaders.

for those not in the know, night witches were russian lady bombers who bombed the shit out of german lines in WW2. Thing is though, they had the oldest, noisiest, crappest planes in the entire world. The engines used to conk out halfway through their missions, so they had to climb out on the wings mid flight to restart the props. the planes were also so noisy that to stop germans from hearing them combing and starting up their anti aircraft guns, they’d climb up to a certain height, coast down to german positions, drop their bombs, restart their engines in midair, and get the fuck out of dodge.
their leader flew over 200 missions and was never captured.

how the fuck is this not taught in every single history class ever

Hyvää syntymäpäivää, Warlord! (26.08.1982)

"I have a secret feeling that we’re all Hobbits. Deep down we all want to stay home and feel safe but we all dream about someone knocking on the door and saying ‘come on an adventure and let’s have a fun ride’."

THE TOLKIEN FANDOM IS THE MOST PAINFUL FANDOM OF THEM ALL BECAUSE EVEN IF YOUR FAVORITE CHARACTER DOESN’T GET BRUTALLY MURDERED TOLKIEN STILL WROTE ABOUT THEIR ENTIRE LIFE SO YOU STILL KNOW EXACTLY WHEN AND WHERE THEY DIED AND I JUST CAN’T HANDLE THAT WHY CAN’T MY FAVORITE CHARACTERS LIVE FOREVER
