The Warehouse

A very mysterious post for this Wednesday. It shows us a huge – I’d even say gigantic – warehouse, full of material. In order to understand its size, just have a look at the German soldier, who seems to be the only present human being. 42 more words

Killing the pig

We don’t know the fate of yesterday’s goat, but we know for sure the fate of this piglet. Once again, this picture has probably been taken on the Eastern front, just like this very similar one.
