Good photos VU.

Felt a bit guilty that I laughed at the base jump.

There's another interesting Hitler with old moustache photo out there. Of a massive crowd after the War listening to some speech (possibly the surrender) and a younger Adolf is in the crowd. Phone Post 3.0

Dr. Oilver Sacks, neurobiologist and author of "The Man Who Mistook His Wife For a Hat", does a full squat with 600 pounds, setting a state record back in 1961.

His book is awesome. It's broke up into a bunch of mini stories about strange medical conditions and is a quick read. I highly recommend Phone Post 3.0
