Flying Babies
‘Operation Babylift’ took place on April 12th, 1975 from Vietnam. Following the Vietnam War, many Vietnamese babies became orphans and that’s where the U.S. government stepped in and took action. They flew the babies back to America, and then citizens of U.S.A., Australia, Canada and France adopted them.

Apestronaut
Apestronaut or astrochimp? Well, it doesn’t really matter. What matters is that Ham The Chimp was the first humanoid ever to be sent successfully into space. It’s because of him that man has been able to advance in space.

Tattoo Chin
A young girl by the name of Olive Ann Oatman was kidnapped along with her sister, by a native American tribe when she was just 14 years old. She was adopted by a Mohave chief and grew up with the tribe. Part of her upbringing included getting a tattoo on her chin. Years later after word about a white girl living with the tribe spread, she was redeemed through an exchange of blankets and horses.

Beer Waterfall
During Prohibition getting a drink might have been as easy as standing next to a brewery with a bucket. Not really though. This photograph shows what happened when police found and bust a bootlegging brewery in Detroit.

Plastic Surgery
Plastic surgery? Michael Jackson? Nah, you can think even further back than that. Think Walter Yeo – this guy. Around 1917 was when the procedure called the ‘skin flap’ was created to treat hideous battle wounds. It’s quite difficult to tell which image came first.

The First Team Picture Ever

A long time ago pictures couldn’t be snapped on a whim. They were planned and considered, and only if they were important would someone grab the camera. This must have been a really important team, because this is the first team photograph ever taken in history. The Knickerbocker Base Ball Club of new Jersey posed proudly for this photograph in 1858.

Hitch A Hippo
It truly is incredible to see which animals humans have domesticated over the years. Oxen, horses, dogs and cats all seem to make sense, but hippopotamuses seem a little unnecessary, don’t you think?

It was either meant as a form of attraction for the circus.

If that wasn't the case, then it must have been one of those crazy experiments of the 19th and 20th centuries that were often carried out to demonstrate the fact that such creatures can be 'tamed' as well. Similar experiments were also carried out with Zebras and Quaggas.
