    I kinda like this one as well. Its a Japanese bomb exploding on the deck of the USS Enterprise Aug 24th 1942 during the battle of the Solomon Islands According to Wiki:

    A Japanese bomb explodes on the flight deck of USS Enterprise, 24 August 1942 during the Battle of the Eastern Solomons, causing minor damage. This was the third and last bomb to hit Enterprise during the battle. The bomb was dropped by a Japanese Aichi D3A1 "Val" dive bomber piloted by Kazumi Horie who died in the attack.

    According to the original photo caption in the US Navy's archives, this explosion killed the photographer, Photographer's Mate 3rd Class Robert F. Read. This image, however, was actually taken by Photographer's Mate 2nd Class Marion Riley, who was operating a motion picture camera from the aft end of the ship's island, above the flight deck and who survived the battle although his photographic equipment was damaged. The film Riley took that day, and of which this still was extracted together with others and published in Life, can be seen at this
    Youtube link (explosion at 03:05). Robert Read was stationed in the aft starboard 5" gun gallery and was killed by the second bomb to hit Enterprise. The smoke from the bomb explosion that killed Read can be seen in the upper left of this photograph

    What fascinates me is looking directly into the explosion. Its as if its exploding right now in front of me, not back in time

    Always thought this was insane.... Juan Marichal losing it, with John Roseboro trying to get away. Sandy Koufax coming in from the mound, with other team members. August 25, 1965.[​IMG]

    And then, later.... The memorabilia generated...

    Barcelona, my son. He drew in the explodey part.

  15. Don’t you just hate going to a gig or band tryout & discovering all the other guitar players are wearing the same outfit you chose?

    They all got stirrup stretch pants to boot, except the guy in Keds.

  16. Kinda sad & memorable for another reason: You can’t get pants like that anymore. Lucky if you can find “boot cut.” Don’t get me started on Navy Jeans.
