🎉🎉🎉Сегодня день рождения празднует Итан Коэн!
Итан вместе с братом Джоелом - признанные мастера "другого кино". Их ленты почти всегда носят криминальный характер и имеют некоторые философско-политические мотивы. Джоел и Итан всегда до мелочей продумывают сюжеты, поэтому в них почти невозможно найти неувязки и неточности.

"Death of Bahadur Shah in front of Diu during negotiations with the Portuguese", a 17th-century painting.
__

In 1531, there was a quarrel between the great Mughal Empire during the reign of Emperor Humayun, and the Gujarat Sultanate, since its ruler, Bahadur Shah, had an ambition to expand his kingdom and seize the Mughal's territories. 3 years later, it turned out that Gujarat suffered a total defeat from the powerful Mughal's army, so the Gujarat ruler, Bahadur Shah, had no other choices but to ask for Portuguese's aid by allowing the Portuguese to erect a factory and gain control of some Gujarat's territories.
__

However, after a while, Bahádur repented of his alliance with the Portuguese, so in 1537, when the Portuguese army finally arrived at city of Diu, the Sultan hoped to get rid of them by stratagem. Bahadur went to Diu himself and endeavored to get the viceroy there into his power. The viceroy then invited Bahadur to have a talk in his ship anchored off the coast of Gujarat.
__

Bahádur agreed, but on his way back he was attacked and killed by the Portuguese and his body was dumped into the Arabian Sea. Later, it was revealed that the reason of Bahádur’s assassination was that a paper from him to the other kings in India, inviting them to join him in an alliance against the Portuguese, had fallen into the hands of the Portuguese viceroy.

The erotica was written during the early #Renaissance period. It became very popular and remains so to this day, for its own merit and the illicit pleasure taken in an erotic novel written by a #Pope.
#TheTaleofTwoLovers, written in 1444 was one of the bestselling books of the fifteenth century, even before its author, #AeneasSylviusPiccolomini, became #PopePiusII. It is one of the earliest examples of an epistolary novel, full of erotic imagery.

Today marks the 91st birthday of the famous gun attack against Al Capone by the northsiders in Cicero. The strip just W of Cicero Ave, on Cermak was controlled by the Capone camp at the time. Capone was having lunch in the Hawthorne Restaurant next to the hotel when a number of cars drove by and let loose over 1,000 shots into the row of buildings. The northsiders were in a bitter gang war with Capone after the killing of their leader, Dean O'Banion. Capone survived this attack with the help of a bodyguard. This plot of land was in tact, in one way or the other, up until the mid 90's. Now it's a boring bank and parking lot. Just another piece of Chicago history, lost forever. #chicagoganglandhistory #chicagooutfit @history_facts_daily @historic @historic_pics #gangwars #alcapone #hymieweiss #mob #driveby #bank #parkinglot #realestate #thisdayinhistory #onthisday #old #chicagohistory #cicero #cermak @berwyncicero #westernelectric #hawthorne #bodyguard #tommyguns #gambling #wiseguys #history #historyfacts #truth #truestory

"Бросание лисицы"🦊⬆️-одна из из кровавых забав, популярных в Европе три столетия назад.
Как правило, таким игрищам предавались пресыщенные и очень жестокие богачи💰Каковы правила этой забавы? Сначала, отлавливали определенное кол-во лисиц. Игра проводилась на огороженной площадке, где люди разбивались на пары. 👫👬Затем участники одной пары вставали лицом друг к другу на 7️⃣м расстоянии, в руках каждый из них держал концы упругой ткани, лежащей на земле между ними. Пара, на чью ткань встала лисичка, должна была резко натянуть ткань, чтобы несчастное животное подлетело вверх как можно выше. Побеждала та пара, чья лисица «взлетала» выше других.💃🏼🕺🏼 🔺Однажды князь саксонский Август Сильный провел столь масштабное бросание лисиц, в результате которого было уничтожено около 650 лисиц, более 500 зайцев, четыре десятка барсуков и два десятка лесных котов.
