Halloa! I fear this box may never provide a description which could ever really satisify the definition of description.
In saying that, I'm 26, from Liverpool, with a passion for Liverpool FC, history, and Star Trek. Ahem.
I suppose I should note that I am so utterly staid that the colour beige has pursued legal action against me on a number of occasions. Damned legal obligations...
Oh, and this blog is quite probably PG-safe (I guess what constitutes PG is subjective, so probably) as I very rarely swear and don't post images of a fleshy nature.
Oh, oh, and I have a fascination (um, irrepressible obsession) with the two world wars, which is why they appear so prominently in my Tumblr. Macabre, perhaps, but it's principally centred on a desire to contribute, however insignificantly, to the "perpetuation" of those who suffered immeasurably in the wars.
“Peacekeeping duties in British Guiana. A patrol of 1st Lancashire Fusiliers set out in canoes from their base in the jungle, watched by a group of Amer-Indian children from the bank. The Lancashire Fusiliers spent nine months in British Guiana in 1965. The deployment was the result of repeated civil unrest and violence caused by ethnic conflict between the African and Asian populations during the early 1960s.”
Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins receive a ticker-tape parade in New York City. Mayor John Lindsay waves to the crowd from the limo. August 13, 1969.
Buzz Aldrin took this picture of Neil Armstrong in the cabin after the completion of the first EVA. This is the face of the first man to set foot on the Moon, just hours earlier, on July 20th, 1969.
Neil Armstrong was a quiet self-described nerdy engineer who became a global hero when as a steely-nerved pilot he made “one giant leap for mankind” with a small step on to the moon. The modest man who had people on Earth entranced and awed from almost a quarter million miles away has died. He was 82.
