  • Who the fuck is cutting onions in here?

    • GunzOfNavarone

      Me, sorry!

  • Don’t worry, North Americans, you’ll have more opportunities to cry for your lost soldiers, as your Government goes into every war in this planet (causing them most times).

    That’s not the Christmas Truce.

    It’s been passed around as such because it’s simply a photograph of
    World War I troops playing soccer (a truce match would also have German
    soldiers in it – note no German soldiers).

    The true and absolute origin – found easily with reverse image search – is right here:

    The image is owned by Britain’s Ministry of Information in their First World War Official Collection. It is a game consisting of “Officers and men of 26th Divisional Ammunition Train playing football in Salonika,” on December 25th, 1915. Not 1914, and not on the Western Front.

    The Great War is serious business. Being right about it even moreso.
