WWII German Soldier in A Gas Mask

This place is so small nobody actually works at the train station. It is empty all the time. You buy your ticket on the train. Why do you trust me with spending my money. Austria. Why do you have this faith in me.

That being said they lock me in the monastery at 5:00pm sharp so not that much trust. Please let me out, little monks. Let me be freeeeee

I was so into the Indiana Jones movies and I would constantly reenact circumstances. I broke my left arm three times, two of which were me trying to be Indiana Jones. The first time, I tied sheets together and tried to climb the side of my house after I saw Raiders of the Lost Ark. The second time, I was riding a horse and trying to gallop as fast as I could, like Indiana Jones, and got thrown from the horse. The third time I was bit older and it didn’t have anything to do with trying to be Indiana Jones. - Pedro Pascal for Interview Magazine.

historia-polski:

Hussar half-armor, second half of the 17th century, Poland

"The armour is made of iron sheet; at the edges and faulds it is lined with brass borders covered with repoussé and stamped pearls. Under the rivets there are laid brass rosettes decorated in the same way as the borders. A helmet has a semi-circular skull, a peak with a nasal bar, a fauld neck guard and cheek pieces with a heart-shaped cut. A five-fauld breastplate with a fishbone in the middle tied with two leather straps. On the chest there are two circular brass appliqués with an openwork knight’s cross. A collarbone guard is made of two plates, cut to a point and tied to the right shoulder. On the front collarbone plate there is a brass cut and a repoussé openwork knight’s cross. There are eight-fauld pads with a profiled fishbone in the middle. At the end, the faulds are indented, the bottom one has an affixed leather strap for tying over the arm. There are Karwasz arm guards with a profiled fishbone on the scoops and lined with borders at the edges. The two-piece bracelets with hinges are decorated with borders in the same way as the scoops.

This is a classic older type Hussar armour dating back to the years 1640–1675. The applied decoration gives the Hussar armour its originality, consisting of the contrasting combination of silver iron and golden brass, which was used to make the borders on the edges of the structural elements, as well as the ornaments and emblems.” (source)
