Probably the biggest sequence I was given on my short time on Lego Batman was of Gotham City being split apart.  I boarded it with my friend Dave Needham and it was a ton of fun.  I’m a little sad they didn’t keep my long orbiting shot of Joker/Bats connecting to the tune of Love Lifts Us Up but hey, you can’t win them all I guess.

Needham and Atkinson 1881 rifle

Manufactured by Needham&Sons c.1880′s in England.
.450 Needham centerfire proprietary cartridge, ~16-round tubular magazine, lever action with two-chamber cylinder elevator and automatic extractor on each cycle.

Firing an odd bucket-shaped round, the Needham rifle is one of these equally odd firearms that I live for.
Simply put, it uses a lever action coupled with a cylinder not unlike the one seen on the Landstad 1900 revolver. This flat cylinder allows each cycling of the action to bring up a fresh round and bring down the spent one, ejecting the later, then chambering the former and loading the next cartridge in the lower chamber of the cylinder.
The ejector is a simple arm on the side of the hammer - in effect, each cycling of the action cocks the hammer twice, a first one to then knock the spent cartridge, and a second to make the gun ready to fire.

A creature being called the Murphysboro Mud Monster, or the Big Muddy Monster, was seen in Murphysboro, Illinois. It was first seen on June 25th, 1973 around midnight by Randy Needham and Judy Johnson. The couple were parked along the side of the road over looking the river. While the two were discussing whether they were going to stay or go home, Needham heard what he described as an “eagle shrieking into a microphone”. After flicking on the headlights to the car, the two were staring at a gigantic creature lumbering toward them. The two later described it as an “oversized gorilla” standing at an estimated 8 feet tall with mud-caked white hair covering its body.

Needham 1851 Patent needlegun

Manufactured by Joseph Needham and Co. in Piccadilly, London - serial numbers 960 and 996.
14g and 16g paper cartridges, side by side barrels with their own triggers and bolts, needlefire.

Needham’s needler is an interesting one. Unlike the Dreyse sporting guns of the same era - or any centerfire hunting rifle really, it doesn’t use a break action but instead allows the whole bolt/firing mechanism thingies to swivel out of the way of the breech, allowing the user to reload the gun.

hedgehogwithatank  asked:

I need some references but I'm to stupid to find them. Do you know some breech loaded rifles where the breech swivels out to the side or top?

not sure if you mean a regular break action firearm or something weirder
I’ll provide both just to be safe .3.

These images are from the Clover Club bound edition of the magazine Seen and Heard, consisting of eight volumes published in 1901 and 1902. The column, “Seen and Heard in Many Places,” appeared every weekday on the editorial page of the Philadelphia Times, from 1885-1900. That was until the writer of the column, Louis N. Megargee, decided to publish his own weekly “miniature magazine.” Megargee was the sole owner, contributor and editor of Seen and Heard.

The Needham family were on holiday on the Greek island of Kos in 1991 when their 21-month-old son Ben disappeared.  Left in the care of his grandparents, the little boy had been playing outside of their farmhouse when he went missing, and after searching the area themselves with no luck, the family notified police. There have been hundreds of alleged sightings in the following years, including instances where he is believed to have been found.  In 1995 a private investigator discovered a blonde boy living with a family of gypsies, who claimed to have been abandoned and bought by them.  3 years later another boy was tested for DNA after a suspicious holidaymaker photographed a boy known as ‘the blonde one’ amongst his Greek friends.  Even as recently as this year, a man was DNA tested after a neighbour suggested he looked like the age progression photo of Ben as an adult.

It has been theorised that Ben might have accidentally been buried among rubble at a nearby dumping sight, although extensive searches of the area have produced no trace of him.  The Needhams believe that Ben is still alive, and police were granted an extra £700,000 funding to continue their investigation through to October of this year. Having now been missing for a quarter of a century, the disappearance of Ben Needham remains one of the most high profile missing person cases in the UK.  Sadly, it seems increasingly likely that the mystery of his disappearance may never be solved.

A day in infamy

December 7, 1941, started as a typical Sunday morning at Pearl Harbor, the US Navy’s Pacific Fleet Headquarters on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. That is, until shortly before 8:00 am, when Japan launched roughly 200 planes from six aircraft carriers in its first wave of Operation Hawaii—forever to be known by Americans as “the attack on Pearl Harbor” or just “Pearl Harbor.”

Today we remember the lives of approximately 2,400 Americans that were lost and more than 1,100 wounded. Marines, sailors, soldiers, airmen who paid the ultimate sacrifice. We remember the day that rallied our nation to enter World War II.

The entire McDonaldland concept was phased out in the ‘70s, when Sid and Marty Krofft sued McDonald’s, claiming that McCheese was actually a rip-off of H.R. Pufnstuf – a character from a children’s TV series of the same name.

Just like McCheese, Pufnstuf was also a mayor – complete with sash and tragically oversized head, as all mayors possess – who ruled over a fantasy land where everything was alive, and all of the toilets were suicidal. According to the lawsuit, the Needham, Harper & Steers ad agency had wanted to license the cast of H.R Pufnstuf for McDonald’s commercials. When this didn’t work out, they decided to make their own mascots, and when that started interfering with their day drinking, they just stole the Pufnstuf designs, changed them slightly, and rode off on fancy dancing horses made entirely of money.

The lawsuit bounced around the courts for a few years, but eventually the Kroffts won, and McDonald’s had to pay them a million dollars. Then, over the next few years, they slowly purged the McDonaldland gang from the history books in the most brutal regime change this side of Game Of Thrones.
