Does anyone have the photos of the 1991 skeletons from the mass grave, laid out on tables as each person? Thanks.

Oh the things I'd like to have asked him! He lived through all those historical times of the early 20th century and would have been old enough to be involved in them. Seems like his memory was good to the last.

Did any tests commissioned by a British TV documentary in 1994 do tests on the face and ears of AA and declare her to be AN? This is stated as fact in the wikipedia "Anastasia" article. I have disrupted it and been told it was true because Kurth said so in "Tsar." I still disagree, because I believe the TV show in question is the NOVA special "Anastasia Dead or Alive" in which the ears were found to be similar, but no one ever said it meant she was AN. The facial examination, by Geoffrey Oxlee, a renowned specialist awarded by the British military and often called as an expert witness in forensic facial analysis in criminal trials, did the comparisons and declared AA to be FS. I have the video of this, and these things are very clear. If there is not another 1994 TV documentary doing tests and claiming AA was AN, then the statement is false. Is there? Can anyone help me out here?

Having Fun! / Star Wars claimant stories
« on: October 15, 2007, 02:47:48 PM »
I can't help it, being on this site, and frequenting some SW and fan-fiction sites, this idea couldn't help but emerge. Think about all those executed Jedi. Were any of their bodies actually found? Mace Windu went flying out the window with electric shock running through him, but do you see him hit the ground? Is his body ever found? The people on the SW board think he may have survived! Then think how Anakin Skywalker was thought dead, but he was actually still alive under a new identity. Obi-Wan and Yoda were thought dead, but also hiding out in a different way, Obi-Wan using a fake name, "Ben." You could say some actually lived, lost their memory, and came back! Is it them, or is it a claimant? So how about coming up with some funny parodies of Star Wars claimants? Ivan Komarov if you're there, I know you can do this!

Just about every single war and conflict of the last 90 years can be traced directly or indirectly to WWI. The only exceptions may be some civil wars in underdeveloped countries. Let's examine the wars that have happened since, and their causes. Just about everything dates back to WWI, and the hapless dissecting of Europe and the Ottoman Empire in the treaties that followed.

WWII is a direct result of WWI and the treaty of Versailles. If not for it, there would have been no Hitler. Then you can add to that every war caused directly or indirectly caused by WWII. Add the Holocaust. Add the problems in the middle east to this day.

All wars caused by communism, even the Cold War, are a result of WWI because that's when the Bolsheviks gained control in Russia. The influence could not have spread if this had not happened first. So add Viet Nam, Korea, and many others to the list. Add Stalin's terrors and purges.

The Iraq War is even a great grandchild of WWI's domino effect. Because of the way the country was inconsiderately made out of territory containing groups of people who didn't like each other, factional violence has been a problem. US policy is to blame, yes. US invaded because of Saddam. Saddam's brutal regime was bad, and a cause too, but it kept the warring factions under control and now that it's gone, there is more factional violence because the groups living there can't get along and should never have been one country to begin with. Had the lines not been drawn around Iraq the way they were, there would have been no Saddam.

After WWII, the most obvious problem caused by WWI is the one that started it all, trouble in the Balkans! All the problems of the former Yugoslav republics date to the time of WWI and of course way before, but again it was the hapless mapmakers of 1919 who, as with Iraq, put them all in a mix that didn't gel. Their totalitarian regime was bad but also kept the factions in line, and after it was gone, the old hatreds were able to surface and fester as in the  past. So in that way, they are right back where they were 100 years ago, and worse.

I'm sure the list could go on. I do wonder what the world would be like today had cooler heads prevailed, and WWI never came to pass.

Having Fun! / Color pics by request?

Do you artists take requests? I thought maybe we could have a thread where people can post ones they'd like to see colorized, and whenever one of you get time you might be able to do them for us? Here's my first request *begs!*
