Run! It's the Flannelgraph Antichrist!

What could be a cuddlier way to explain the end of the world? Try Stories in Revelation for Tots to Teens--in flannelgraph form!

Update: I think that "The Flannelgraph AntiChrist" would be an usual name for a blog, now that I think about it. I wonder if someone is already using it.

When going with the lowest bidders may not be the best idea

Now it can be revealed--1950s footage of ICBMs exploding when they are not supposed to, namely during top secret tests.

I missed the great energy crisis of 1996. I guess that I was off the planet at the time

Here's Superkids, a 1975 propaganda comic by the Canadian federal government which explains that if we don't save energy there will be a huge energy crisis in 1996.

Hat tip: Colby Cosh.

What's really sad is that I remember reading that comic in elementary school!

Show us your bullets!

Here's a series of pictures of pretty soldiers in the Israeli Defense Forces. (Who knows, maybe this will result in search engine hits for me other than "Is Ben Mulroney gay?)
