While the American military was developing the Bell P-59 Airacomet (one of the first ever jet planes), keeping everything about the experimental aircraft a secret was a top priority. They were so serious about this, that during development they stuck a giant wooden propeller onto the front of the craft make it look less suspicious.…

Religion, as you might guess, is a pretty hot-button topic around the world, and it has been throughout history.

Among the articles about key moments in history and great works of art, lie pages that document the inane and irrelevant in painstaking detail.
