This 1908 image of women smoking and drinking was intended to be a horrifying glimpse of a post-suffrage future. Now it just looks like an awesome bar.

Imagine Daniel Jackson as the Doctor’s companion

He’d be crying when he realises that he’ll only ever be able to hear ancient civilisations speak English

and all the ancient text is now in English

and he’d weep on the console room floor

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.
