The charred remains of Jesse Washington. Washington was lynched on May 15, 1916, due to somewhat debatable accusations of rape-murder. The ethnicity and skin color of the victim/culprit and the punisher/mob respectively, dare I say, goes without saying. 

"Members of the mob castrated Washington, cut off his fingers, and hung him over a bonfire. He was repeatedly lowered and raised over the fire for about two hours. After the fire was extinguished, his charred torso was dragged through the town and parts of his body were sold as souvenirs."

Only one out of many many cases, the horrid lynching of Jesse Washington is a grisly but not at all extraordinary capture of the good old spirit of rural Texas.

This is Ilya Ivanovich Ivanov. He led a series of unsuccessful scientific experiments during the early stages of the Soviet Union (1920’s) in which he tried to create a human-ape hybrid through means of artificial insemination. He used human sperm and female chimpanzees. The experiments were put on hold after severe political and moral criticism, with no successful outcome. He later died in Kazakh SSR, after having been exiled by the Soviet authorities. The hypothetical hybrid is colloquially called a humanzee.

This picture allegedly shows a traditional horse armour originating in India. According to Indian myth, the ancient warlords would have their horses wear long trunk-like extensions in their headpieces so that, when fighting an enemy utilizing war elephants, the elephants would not do harm to the horses, thinking they were in fact small baby elephants. The war elephants would then naturally not attack, as it is against their nature. Whether or not this is true, or just a mere mythical historical remnant, I will leave to the indologists and historians. Further information very much so appreciated.
