    Are those Wool sheep still unrecovered? It has only been two, three months.

    Bring back those watches and eliminate batteries.

    How does anyone end up fighting for both sides in the same war??

    Not sure, though Russia’s allegiance was always a little shaky. Think there’s a movie about him.

    Strange, Yang doesn’t look Italian.

    I had some of those watches when I was a kid.

    Before watch makers were aware of the hazard, some workers got ill from radiation poisoning because they would moisten the tips of the brushes by licking them.

    I knew a girl once that played for both teams so, anything is possible(with her anyway).

    Unfortunately the women who applied the paint all got sick with radiation poisoning. Even if u solved that issue you still have a watch on our arm – or in the trash – with radium. No matter how small – very bad. Radium is also the source of radon gas – very bd. Radium in any form causes cancer.

    PBS did a Docudrama on the history of forensic’s and included how several poisons were traced, included was the Radium story.
    Its amazing how many poison’s were sold off the shelf in the early 20th century as cure-all’s.

    Lawyers do it all the time. Pretty common.

    That’s because the artist chose a picture taken after he was captured by American paratroopers after d-day and he knew he was a prisoner of war.

    Probably the only photo he could find. It’s on the wikipedia article on Yang Kyoungjong.

    I once knew a Navy Seabee who was in the Polish Army, captured by the Germans & pressed into service to fight for the Krauts, escaped and made his way to England via Switzerland. He enlisted in the British Navy. When WWII was over he made his way to the US & enlisted in the US Navy, made a career in the USN. Straight story, now this is no s—t.

    Yang was forced into all three armies. Korea was under Japanese control when he was conscripted to fight against the Soviets. That ended up with him captured and then pressed into service in the Soviet army. Germans captured him and did the same thing. He ended up in a British POW camp after American troops captured him and mistook him for a Japanese soldier in German uniform.

    Lucky he survived really.

    Just like the x ray machines that used to be in shoe stores. They used them to see how your new shoes fit.

    The salesman standing next to the machine was exposed to much more radiation than was good for him.

    Many ended up with different cancers. Those machines aren’t around any more.
