As you may have noticed (OK, if you haven’t noticed there’s something different around here you’re either blind or new) the blog’s looking a little more awesome today. My husband is honing his HTML skills and, if I do say so myself, the blog’s looking better as a result.
This image is brick icicles. The Russians were experimenting with their version of Napalm and testing it out in (presumably empty) brick houses. The ensuing fires were so hot that they melted the bricks and the resulting icicles are all that’s left.
I found this image here, where you can visit if you’d like to see more images and find out a little more backstory.
As a naturally curious person, I think it’s fascinating to see this. Of course, the idea of Napalm is a bit horrifying, especially if you’re on the receiving end of it, but I’m fine with using this as this week’s Thing because there is no death here. Only coolness. And coolness? Never sucks.
