    I watched Scary Movie a few days ago. This video reminded me of that scene with Shannon Elizabeth and the killer.

  9. TheReedable

    The Normans were very ruthless people and I think we are missing on the way things worked back then. It wouldn't be surprising at all that William was murdered. There is a story if a noble who attended a wedding and left without ears, nose or genitalia... They were very intense people and most of the drama in today's shows comes from their lifesfyle

    You know, it's kinda sad. We have all of these rules for war which is fine since it keeps the atrocities down. But then it always seems like that as soon as the shooting starts they go out the window. So really, if only a couple countries are gonna follow the rules, why even have them?

    Why Beast? He was up on the Hill did his job and fought for his life otherwise they would have killed him. This was war, so demonizing him as Beast is not right.

  15. Haris Hadzibulic

    Can you make a video about the finnish wars or the english sea wars in the 19th century. I find it a very interesting part of history.

  18. A Spanish Inquisitor

    Not sure if it's true or not, but I heard of stories of the U.S. government actually sabotaging ak rounds that were being supplied to the NVA by the Chinese, what they would do was put a small explosive in the primer in the primer so that when it was fired the round would explode and disable the gun. However the war ended before this would happen. What I find the most interesting is that there might be some still floating around, so if your firing an ak or sks and the gun explodes out of nowhere, that may have been one of them.

  65. John Edson Go

    I remember John Mccain. Mccain was a US pilot during the Vietnam war. During the Operation Rolling Thunder. Mccain's plane was shot by the North Vietnamese army and his parachute landed in Hanoi. After he landed in Hanoi,he was captured by the North Vietnamese troops and detained in Hanoi Hilton as a POW from 1967 to 1973 after the signing of the Paris Peace Accord between the United States and the North Vietnamese. In mid-1968, The North Vietnamese army offered John Mccain Jr., Father of John Mccain, to release his son to be used as propaganda of the enemy but Mccain Jr. refused because he doesn't want to accept any offer from the enemy
