Debut of 'Interesting Oddities'...

Well, I do not really know how to classify this page. You see, I surf lots on the Internet and frequently discover very interesting / amusing / captivating (depending on your own vocab) photos.

Before I had this blog, I kept all these inside my harddisk. Therefore, I would not really remember the credits or source of these photos. But I will do my best to credit and caption these photos.

Please note that 'one man's honey may be another man's bittergourd' concerning the photos posted.

Here we go!

Outtake from the Tom Cruise movie 'Valkyrie'

Skunky hitler toy.

Lots of battlefield dug German WW2 General Assault Badges and Drivers Badges!

A badly twisted German Black Wound Badge - Perhaps from sharpnel or a bullet.
