I'm glad the History Channel is producing mockumentaries like The Great Martian War. The real documentaries are not much different and science-fiction alternative history lines are always more interesting than our savage and grim historical realities. It's also very well made.
Today marks the 100th anniversary of Britain's entry into World War One, and commemorative events are taking place across the country. None are more beautiful than Nele Azevedo's "Minimum Monument", however.
Horse gas masks first came about around World War I to protect them from chemical agents. Amazing that we still used horses during warfare then! I do love how fitting them up with these crazy masks makes the little horsey look a lot more intimidating and apocalyptic. Gas masks have that effect. [Industrial Anatomy via
