Even the worst guys in history were kids once. Before Osama Bin Laden became infamous for being a terrorist who weekly had video releases of his cave talks with his followers, he was a teenager with his family on a trip to Sweden. While his brother was there for business, the rest of the family was free to travel and take pictures, like the one seen here.
Osama was born in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and went to a secular grade school. However, it was when he attended the University of King Abdulaziz that he became radicalized and was indoctrinated with violent jihadi ideas.
Jimi Hendrix's Army Days
The year was 1961. It was before man landed on the moon, and after the Beatles were formed. At that time, Jimi Hendrix was still alive and kicking. Or rather, alive and playing.
Back then, he wasn't a legend just yet. Instead, he was enlisted to serve in the US army, and as you can see, he wore his uniform incredibly well. Plus, accessorizing himself with a guitar couldn't have hurt either.
The Statue of Liberty
The Statue of Liberty was a symbol of how America welcomed people of all races, creeds, and nationalities. Its construction was completed on October 28, 1886, as it took a couple of years to build due to its humongous size.
In 1984, the structure was considered by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization as a World Heritage Site due to its ability to promote human rights, peace, slavery abolition, and democracy.
As early as 1902, Henry Ford considered creating a vehicle that would help him set a speed record, completing a mile in 39.4 seconds. In 1904, he was able to achieve his dream.
In this picture, he is shown standing by racecar driver Barney Oldfield, who was lucky enough to drive that car (aka Ford 999) on the frozen Lake St Clair and break the record.
Before the moon landing occurred in 1969, NASA’s Apollo 1 mission made sure its astronauts were prepared for the worst. In an effort to practice all types of landings, including landing on a body of water, Apollo 1 made sure it tried to simulate the effort of being on one.
Astronaut Gus Grissom can be seen in this picture sitting nearest to the mock-up of the space capsule. Meanwhile, other astronauts such as Roger Chaffee and Ed White similarly make an appearance on this image.
