"Water skiing was invented in 1922 when Ralph Samuelson used a pair of boards as skis and a clothesline as a towrope on Lake Pepin in Lake City, Minnesota. Samuelson experimented with different positions on the skis for several days until July 2,1922. Samuelson discovered that leaning backwards in the water with ski tips up and poking out of the water at the tip was the optimal method. His brother Ben towed him and they reached a speed of 32 kilometres per hour (20 mph).Samuelson spent 15 years performing shows and teaching water skiing to people in the United States." #history #waterski #midwest #airbnb #hillsidecottage #cypressresortandmarine at Cypress Resort & Marine, Inc

Bhutan is an Asian nation located north of Bangladesh and engulfed in the Eastern Himalayan Mountains. The nation is one of few to have never been colonized, and today marks the celebration of the formation of the current Bhutanese government that maintained its sovereignty from British India. The area was home to a small amount of settlements in the habitability areas of the mountains, and existed as a cluster of warring fiefdoms until being united in the 17th century against the growing threat of British colonization. The new government reached an agreement to maintain its independence as long as the nation followed certain guidelines, and has existed peacefully alongside India since. The nation’s flag was first conceptualized in 1947, but not finalized to the current version until 1969. The flag’s yellow and orange sections were inspired by the colours of Bhutan’s royalty, yellow, and the colour of the Buddhist practice in the nation. The dragon is shown with jewels on its claws to symbolize wealth, and the animal holds deep cultural significance. According to legend, the first settlers of Bhutan heard three claps of thunder, believed to be a dragon’s roar, and decided to settle in that area. The Bhutanese name for the nation, Druk yul, holds this tradition, translating to Land of the Thunder Dragon. Fun fact: Bhutan is home to the world’s highest unclimbed mountain, due to Bhutanese law prohibiting traveling up to a certain height. This is because these mountain peaks are believed to be sacred. 🇧🇹What do you think of Bhutan? Have you been there?

"Many Euro-Amerikan students may have been subjectively sincere a desire for internationalism, but objectively what took place was the reverse. Because the same time the Euro-Amerikan left was promoting Huey and Bobby, they were ignoring---thus implicitly condoning--- imperialist counter Insurgency against real Revolutionary Nationalists such as Fred Ahmed Evans in Cleveland or the New Afrikan 11 in Mississippi." - E.

Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. - SEE THE FACE CLOSELY AND OBSERVE THE FACIAL STRUCTURE OF @muhammadali - BE A HUMAN BEING AND DONT BE STUPID OF MY DADS GENETICAL BLUEPRINT SEEING THE FACE IS ONE THING UNDERSTANDING IT IS ANOTHER - THE ONLY MALE FACE THAT WILL EVER MATCH @muhammadali IS @muhammadali.ibn BECAUSE LIKE FATHER GAVE BIRTH TO SON #humanitarian #conspriacy #ibnmuhammadali #muhammadali #son #blood #male #one #existing #truth #justice #freedom #america #watch #legend #wisdom #genetics #orhpositive #dna #world #champion #kentucky #history #louisville #england #nigeria #africa #europe

Last event for today! 💪 💡 SCORE stands for "Signal Communications by Orbiting Relay Equipment" . 📖 Launched aboard an American Atlas rocket on December 18, 1958, SCORE provided a first test of a communications relay system in space, as well as the first successful use of the Atlas as a launch vehicle . 🧐 The rocket was popularly dubbed "The Talking Atlas" after broadcasting a Christmas message via shortwave radio from U.S. President Dwight D.

Just finished Dread Nation by Justina Ireland! (Well, at 10:00 p.m. last night to be exact 😄) 🧟‍♂️ Review: Picture the era when the North won the Civil War, and the South lay in absolute ruin, the beginnings of the Reconstruction period set forth. And though life will forever change for the better and the worse, all is morphed and disintegrated into nothing. Now picture a blank space. And there, in that blank space, was supposed to be the history we all know. Why is it taken off? Because zombies invaded the narrative, and now what should have been a bloody and successful Civil War turned into a seize-fire in order to prevent the annihilation of the U.S. Life in the 1870’s is now built in fear and supposed safety. One major piece to sustain a somewhat peaceful life is by forcing African-Americans and Native-Americans to be taught in combat schools to fight the dead. And that is where we’re thrust into this new alternate reality of the U.S. with combat student, Jane McKeene. In this society Ireland creates, we venture with Jane through the series of rules and lectures students are subjected to, where no free will is reigned and only control of rich, white people roams the plantations of a “now-free” country. After reading this book, it’s the same damn thing as slavery, just glossed over with new laws that “help” former slaves and Native Americans. Our heroine is supposed to be one great character, but Jane is barely withstanding when it comes to being labeled as a “remembered character”. Frankly almost ALL characters in this story are ones that don’t leave you thinking about them 🤷‍♂️. At least for me of course. The only one I really liked was Katherine, she was great and layered and everything a main character needs to have for readers to sympathize with. But who do we end up with? Plain-old Jane. Though Jane is great for a badass warrior and knowledge and other things African-Americans were banned from doing, I didn’t like her personality. The history was excellent, I absolutely adored the hidden marks of actual history with new history 😍, so for all you history junkies, this book is for you! 🧟‍♂️ Rating: ⭐️🌟⭐️🌟/5.
