Few people realise they are living through history.
I wonder how many people realised they were living through momentous times while they were happening.

I often think people gain a poor world view based on their very short lifespan and experiences.

This is an amazing site: http://www.visualizingeconomics.com/

I think some of the images from this site and others put things into perspective.

For example, from http://www.visualizi...rice-1791-2007/




And from http://www.visualizi...e-of-world-gdp/




And finally what must be the most amazing chart, from http://www.kk.org/co...ives/000453.php

4000 years of world history

No I am wrong, it is not the most amazing chart.

Here are some amazing charts blink.gif blink.gif

A collection of images of various periods of history

Here are a couple of bits as examples:







Then there is this:

Grand Unified Timeline of Human History

And this looks just amazing. I wish there were bigger pictures:

Have a look at the chart of population (native against non-native) in the bottom-left corner of this image: U.S. History 1492-1750.

Of course, if McCain and Palin win the election, Palin will have it banned and silently replaced with a Creationist version.

Some great finds there Steve, thanks.
The entire modern financial system is based upon a very small group of people having the power to create money out of thin air.

Did your post previous to mine always contain the 'native / non-native population' chart when I posted about it.

If it was, I'm just amazed I missed it in your post... Old age, I suppose... laugh.gif

Ahem.

So, er... sorry, were you saying something? huh.gif

We can not sit back and allow communist infiltration, communist indoctrination, communist subversion and the international communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.
