  • nathaniel…now I could be wrong but I imagine your picture here is a hand slapping an X chromosome…am I close? Any other guesses? P.S. i must have the paper planes. Esp, after the last post on it about a month or two ago.

    The first Caitlin Gallupe reminds me of the cover of “Fear And Loathing in Las Vegas”

Are the Similarities Between Trump and Hitler TIME Covers Purely Coincidental?

TIME Magazine has just announced their “Person of the Year” is Donald Trump. Twitter users were quick to point out the striking similarities between this cover, shot by photographer Nadav Kander, and the Adolf Hitler cover from April 1941. Hitler was also named “Person of the Year” in 1938.
