  • "That's What Happens When You Fall A..."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    There are been a lot of hilarious moments in these Great Blunders in History by The History Channel (even though the vast majority of them pertain to wars and other human atrocities), but this one has to be at the top of the list where Adolf Hitler’s officers were afraid to wake him and therefore the Panzers were able to be mobilized at all.

    Even though it is somewhat humorous, it’s still a very serious part of our history as the Allies position themselves to make one of the controlling and final attacks on the German military.

    Again, this is a great way to learn about history through these various snapshots in time.

    Story

    In this episode of Great Blunders in History, The History Channel, of which this wonderful series is based, details the “Blitzkrieg” strategy that Hitler implemented during World War II. Hitler put so much emphasis on the dive bombers, that he neglected to develop a long-range bomb attack. Much to his chagrin.

    Another wonderful account of history that I really enjoyed reading.

    Story

    I enjoyed this book in regards to it taking the reader to places of the world that aren't often reported on and reporting some of the global climate changes that are taking place right here and now.

    The report isn't one that is “hitting you over the head” with a lot of facts and figures, but reports in a way that is easy to grasp and understand, for everyone to understand.

    I think you’ll enjoy listening to this report and hopefully it’ll help you to make up your own mind as to what’s actually going on with our world that we all inhabit.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Speeches by Ronald Reagan: The Ultimate Collection to be better than the print version?

    No


    Which character – as performed by the narrator – was your favorite?

    Ronald Reagan


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Even his routine speeches brought me to unexpected tears.


    Any additional comments?

    Each speech needs an introductory statement of its date, place and context.

    A fifth series from BBC Radio 4, in which Stephen Fry examines, with the help of experts, the highways and byways of the English language. In these four episodes he tells 'The Story of X': a letter holy and profane, sexy and chaste; discusses intonation, the "song" of English, and how cadence affects meaning; muses on the art and craft of conversation - and whether true conversation can happen on TV and radio - and ponders the meaning of meaning and the gap between brain and mouth that means language can never truly represent thought.

    The RMS Titanic sailed from Southampton en route for New York on her maiden voyage with 2,228 passengers and crew on board. On 14 April, 1912, at twenty minutes before midnight, sailing at almost full speed, she struck an iceberg and sank in just two and a half hours. Over 1500 lives were lost. This is the story of a great tragedy described by the surviving passengers, officers, and crew who were on board that night. Firsthand accounts help to explain why so few of the passengers took to the lifeboats.

But there is an ever growing pool of evidence that not only denies these claims but makes it abundantly clear that there is in fact a war being raged between man and alien. There are extraterrestrial beings visiting the earth and it appears the Men in Black are actually fighting a battle of secrecy.

    Hard-working, dedicated, inventive, and ready to tackle any genre - that was Academy Award-winning director Robert Wise. Despite all the praise and awards, Wise could easily be called one of Hollywood's always working blue-collar directors. He helmed everything from B movies to Academy Award-winning blockbusters, all while managing to live a quiet life amid the glitz, glamour, and scandal of Tinsel Town. How this soft-spoken man managed to tame mega-stars' egos while directing film classics remains a mystery.

    Alien Implants are a physical object placed in a human body after they have been abducted by Aliens. Capabilities of the implants range from telepresence to mind control and biotelemetry (akin to humans tagging wild animals for study). Dr. Roger Leir is one of the world’s most important leaders in physical evidence research involving the field of Ufology. He and his surgical team have performed numerous surgeries on alleged alien abductees resulting in the removal of distinct objects suspected of being Alien Implants.
