for those not in the know, night witches were russian lady bombers who bombed the shit out of german lines in WW2. Thing is though, they had the oldest, noisiest, crappest planes in the entire world. The engines used to conk out halfway through their missions, so they had to climb out on the wings mid flight to restart the props. the planes were also so noisy that to stop germans from hearing them combing and starting up their anti aircraft guns, they’d climb up to a certain height, coast down to german positions, drop their bombs, restart their engines in midair, and get the fuck out of dodge.
their leader flew over 200 missions and was never captured.

- Being poor is expensive as fuck. Living paycheck-to-paycheck means you…
Some of this info is pretty US centric, but read this shit.
Last night we watched Bolt, which is an animated movie about a dog (hijinks ensue). And Wendy, who is a bulldog puppy spent the entire movie transfixed to the screen. At one really sad point she actually cried.
