ENGLISH CONVERSATION 3 CLASS OF SNU MEMORIZE THE SPEECH
From legends about George Washington to historical monuments, here are the Biggest Lies told in History. Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 10. Columbus Discovered America 9. Paul Revere 8. 13 Colonies 7. Washington Cherry Tree 6. The Crossing of the Delaware 5. Van Gogh Cut off Ear While in school, learning about famous artists, we all know that Van Gogh was simply a mad man who sliced off his ear and mailed it to his lover, right? Who would really inflict that much physical pain on themselves over an ex? After looking through quite a few letters and it seems more than likely that him and a friend of his got into a scuffle involving too much French wine and a sword. Which normally don’t mix too well. Van Gogh was certainly no snitch and didn’t want to report the incident that could potentially put his best friend in prison. 4. Sphinx Nose How did the Sphinx lose it’s nose? Did it get a bad Rhinoplasty? Or was While Napoleon was invading Egypt, he used the nose as a target practice for his cannons. This is another absurd historical legend that many still might believe. The nose was gone centuries before Napoleon was even born. Napoleon was fascinated with Egyptology and sought to preserve egypt’s antiquities. The limestone used to construct the sphinx eroded fairly quickly after a few thousand years had gone by. But Egypt is a Muslim country where worshipping idols is not permitted and it’s still a wonder how this monument is still here. Historical accounts from the 1400’s say that a religious islamist leader, Muhammad Sa’im al Dahr, destroyed the nose when he saw people worshipping the sphinx as an idol. 3. Vikings Horned Helmets Archaeologists have a better chance of finding a unicorn than finding a horned viking helmet. Even the football team the Vikings, have horns on their helmet. This is just a modern day myth and an artist's portrayal of how the vikings actually looks while in battle. Thiss portrayal began in the 1800’s when scandinavians artists such as Malmstrom and Mary McGregor included this style of helmet, like we see in this illustration of Leif Ericsson discovering Vineland. Horned helmets did exist but these were over a couple thousand of years ago during the bronze age and used for ritualistic religious ceremonies 2. Stonehenge One of the biggest ancient mysteries in the world is certainly stonehenge and they’ve been standing in that formation for 5000 years. Oh no don’t tell me this is a lie too. Could this all be some kind of cruel hoax? Historical records of the monument date back to about 1200 AD but it’s highly doubtful that they’ve been in the same position we see them today. A curator from Cambridge University quoted,”Nearly all the stones we see today have been moved in some way and are standing in concrete.” This image we see here shows stonehenge in 1877 with stones leaning on eachother. Many monuments around the world must be restored at some point. This photo here shows some type of restoration project going on in 1898 with two men on top of a block that looks like it’s being placed there with a crane. This photo shows the crane picking up the block and you can clearly tell this is a massive restoration project. Take a look at the photos and let us know what you believe. 1. First Thanksgiving Sorry Guys, American eye has to ruin thanksgiving for you too. And there’s absolutely no truth to this one besides the feast itself and what we celebrate couldn’t be anything further from the truth! As a kid you might have believed your teacher saying that thanksgiving was a friendly celebration between Indians and Pilgrims who came together and feasted on Turkey legs and corn, sharing farming secrets. Thanksgiving was basically a celebration after a vengeful retaliation on native americans and it was celebrated around the same time each year. We won’t get into all the details but if you know how history tended to go between European settlers and Native Americans, you can probably take a good guess. Anyways, don’t let it keep you from enjoying some stuffing and turkey, which the pilgrims never ate

James Woods Destroys Oprah With 3 Photos From Her Past – Her Presidential Bid Is Ruined The elite royalty of Hollywood had barely sat down after giving a standing ovation Oprah Winfrey for her speech at the Golden Globes Award Ceremony when the World of Twitter exploded. Winfrey was onstage to accept the Cecil B. DeMille Award for “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment.” The former daytime talk show queen made no references to policy decisions about the national debt or immigration. The billionaire who developed a knack for drawing out the personal stories of guests for her millions of adoring viewers and famously gave away cars to entire studio audiences did not address the crisis of black-on-black crime in her adopted home of Chicago, where her show and offices were located for many years. Winfrey, who was nominated for an Oscar in 1986 as a supporting actress in ‘The Color Purple,’ did not demand that peace talks be initiated in the Middle East or offer a solution to North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un’s nuclear ambitions, trade deals, or the national debt. Winfrey talked about… herself. While some encouraged Winfrey to run for president in 2020, others actually referred to her as “Madame President” and NBC called her “OUR future president,” as though all that was lacking was a ride down an elevator for a photo-op and a formal announcement. James Woods has taken to Twitter so expose the hypocrisy of Oprah and her story about standing up against sexual abuse of women. Oprah can’t explain away these pictures of her with disgraced moview produecer Harvey Weinstein. Actress Meryl Street went so far as to suggest Winfrey had no choice but to seek the presidency. But Winfrey may have some explaining to do before she picks out the curtains for the Oval Office – as actor James Woods was quick to post several photographs of her snuggling up to Harvey Weinstein, the disgraced producer who stands accused of using his position in Hollywood to sexually harass actresses. In one photograph, Winfrey was kissing Weinstein on the cheek
Brutally Honest trump supporter tells it like it is.
Take a moment and think about it. Remember it, Share it and maybe, just maybe, we can be great again!
The point of this video? Not to create animosity nor give an audience to hateful statements from people who, because of their own apathy, in part created the world we now live. The point of this video is to make anyone who cares to pull together and stop the down fall as best as they can. To be good to one another and stop blaming everybody else for our own short comings. To heal ourselves so that we can heal others. Not as separate parts, but as a whole sum of Humanity!
This video has now been seen in 190+ countries!
Still people don't seem to be getting the point.
I am a human being just as you. Doing things for the right reasons just as you.
If you're not treating your fellow man (Mankind) (Human Beings) with compassion, or at least treating them as you would be treated, then how are you helping the situation.
And if you're not helping the situation, then what are you doing?
Its not about invisible lines that divide us rather human qualities that unit us.
It's a lie to think your not good enough. There are two entities in the world.
1. Evil This is where one feels Anger, Jealousy, Greed, Resentment, Lies, and Inferiority.
2. Goodness This is where one feels Joy, Peace, Love, Hope, Humility, Kindness, Empathy and Truth.
As I read over the comments I see both Evil and Goodness shared. It is not a country that is evil or good. Rather it is a personal choice of the people in any country to be either Good or Evil. And they do so through their actions.
