Life is stranger than fiction
#arthur conan doyle
“Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. We would not dare to conceive the things which are really mere commonplaces of existence. If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs, and and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outre results, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable.”
― Arthur Conan Doyle, The Complete Adventures of Sherlock Holmes [via goodreads.com]
Fred Guardineer Action Comics #15 Superman Cover Original Art (DC, 1939). Offered here is the original art for only the fifth Superman cover appearance ever, as the Man of Tomorrow rushes to the aid of a distressed U.S. submarine. It’s easily the earliest Superman cover art known to exist and quite possibly the earliest Superman art in existence.
C-47 Dakota Airplane Wreck by Rico Besserdich
C-47 Dakota Airplane was intentionally sunken under the “Karaada Artificial Reefs Project” in order to create a new diving point for the divers. It was used as a debarkation plane by the Turkish Air Force until it was sunken on 1st of July 2008.
Equipped with two propellers, the plane by the effects of storms and currents glided down to its present depth. Meanwhile the broken propeller is being located between the cockpit and the shore.
It is not recommended diving inside of the plane which is 19.5 meters long and has 29 meters wing width, because of the instable structure and a lot of stuff dangling around.
But you can find it at:
GPS - coordinates:
Width 36° 10.67’
Height 29° 38.61’
Maximum depth: 22

"An honorable human relationship — that is, one in which two people have the right to use the word “love” — is a process, delicate, violent, often terrifying to both persons involved, a process of refining the truths they can tell each other."
