Mat Ames found some negatives in a thrift store in Roanoke, Virginia. After digitizing them, a lot of the photos seemed to belong to a couple's vacation in Naples, Italy, in 1938. Among all the scenic Italian vignettes there was a creepy surprise—a sinister figure sitting in a car under the sun. It was Adolf Hitler.
You're looking at an x-ray of Hitler's skull, now up for auction starting at $100. It was part of a 47-page 1945 classified report issued by the US Military Intelligence Service Center that "contained highly-detailed data obtained from Adolf Hitler's six chief physicians."
We've all argued over the standard old time travel paradoxes, but here's a rule we can all abide by: If you're going to kill Hitler, do it early. Besides, who do you think's easier to bump off, a bunkered dictator or a failing art student? [xkcd]
This is the house were Hitler spent the last years of his life, a remote mansion similar to the infamous Berghof located in the Nahuel Huapi Lake, in Patagonia, Argentina, a remote mountainous paradise full of Nazi refugees.
The Washington Post has highlighted some of the pieces at a new exhibit in the CIA's headquarters in Langley, Virginia. The most striking one is this one: a letter written by Lieutenant Richard Helms on Hitler's stationery.
It didn't take a lot of time—the obligatory Hitler gets angry about the new iPhone 4S video is out. It's actually hilarious, going in crescendo. All the references are spot on, but this is my favorite phrase:
No, these never get old and this one is great. The end is particularly funny—if you're aware that HP is considering quitting the PC business, that is.
Think we're the only ones with the advanced tools to tamper with photos. Think again as this craft actually extends back to the early days of photography.This looks like General Ulysses S. Grant in front of his troops at City Point, Virginia during the Civil War, but it's actually a composite of three different…
Like an Aryan Death Star, the Nazis' Gustav was the largest gun ever built and didn't leave much planet where it hit.
A photo album showing never-seen-before photos of Hitler and the Nazis has surfaced with photos dating back to 70 years ago. Its current owner has no clue who the photographer was, but judging by the level of access he was given, he must have been someone.UPDATED
Apparently, Nazis were using 3D cameras before any of us thought 3D was dumb. According to Variety, Nazis had developed a 'sophisticated stereoscopic camera' to record athletes as they crossed the finish line in the 1936 Olympics.
If you love beautiful, airy architecture that shelters the body and inspires the soul, you came to the wrong place. These never-before-published images of Hitler's quarters—at the Reich's New Chancellery—only show brassy, oppressive interiors that inspire disgust.
Hitler is not very happy with the iPod touch camera situation. I can't blame him, actually. He makes a pretty good case, touching all the bases.
NPR has this fascinating piece on the custom microphone building threaded with history of Neumann Microphones. Neumann made the smooth-sounding U47 that the Beatles recorded on almost exclusively on from 1962 to 1970, as did Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Bing Crosby, and others. When I say others, I…
