Mother Of The Year
In a zoo in California, a mother tiger gave birth to a rare set of
triplet tiger cubs. Unfortunately, due to complications in the
pregnancy, the cubs were born prematurely and due to their tiny size,
they died shortly after birth.

The mother tiger after recovering from the delivery, suddenly started
to decline in health, although physically she was fine. The
veterinarians felt that the loss of her litter had caused the tigress to fall into a
depression. The doctors decided that if the tigress could surrogate
another mother's cubs, perhaps she would improve.

After checking with many other zoos across the country, the depressing
news was that there were no tiger cubs of the right age to introduce to
the mourning mother. The veterinarians decided to try something that
had never been tried in a zoo environment. Sometimes a mother of one
species will take on the care of a different species. The only orphans"
that could be found quickly, were a litter of weaner pigs. The zoo
keepers and vets wrapped the piglets in tiger skin and placed the
babies around the mother tiger. Would they become cubs or pork chops??
Take a look........ you won't believe your eyes!!  Scroll down to view.

Update: These pictures are actually from the Sriracha Tiger Zoo in Thailand, a popular attraction that boasts of 200 tigers, 100,000 crocodiles, trained pigs, elephants, and other animals.  The zoo features creative shows and displays of animals including these pictures of an adult tiger with piglets dressed like tiger cubs.  One of the goals of the zoo is to demonstrate how animals of different species can live peacefully together.  One of the experiments was introducing baby piglets to a mother tiger (who herself had been nursed by a pig) and it worked.  At one time the mother tiger nursing piglets was in an enclosure next to an enclosure where a sow was nursing baby tigers.  The zoo says those cubs grew faster from the pig's milk.

A man walks into a restaurant with a full-grown ostrich behind him.The waitress asks them for their orders.
The man says, "A hamburger, fries and a coke," and
turns to the ostrich, "What's yours?"
"I'll have the same," says the ostrich.
A short time later the waitress returns with the order.
"That will be $9.40 please." The man reaches into his pocket and
pulls out the exact change for payment.

The next day, the man and the ostrich come again and
the man says, "A hamburger, fries and a coke."
The ostrich says, "I'll have the same."

Again the man reaches into his pocket and pays with exact change.
This becomes routine until the two enter again.
"The usual asks the waitress?"

"No, this is Friday night, so I will have a steak, baked potato
and a salad," says the man.
"Same," says the ostrich.

Shortly the waitress brings the order and says, "That will be $32.62."
Once again the man pulls the exact change out of his pocket and
places it on the table.

The waitress cannot hold back her curiosity any longer.
"Excuse me, sir.
How do you manage to always come up with the exact change
in your pocket every time?"

"Well," says the man, "several years ago I was cleaning the attic and
found an old lamp. When I rubbed it, a Genie appeared and offered
me two wishes. My first wish was that if I ever had to pay for anything,
I would just put my hand in my pocket and the right amount of money
would always be there."

"That's brilliant!" says the waitress. "Most people would ask for a
million dollars or something, but you'll always be as rich as you want
for as long as you live!"

"That's right…Whether it's a gallon of milk or a Rolls Royce,
the exact money is always there," says the man.
The waitress asks, "What's with the ostrich?"

The man sighs, pauses and answers, "My second wish was for a tall chick
with a big ass and long legs who agrees with everything I say.."

Stalingrad, 1942-1943

Stalingrad Photograph
Stalingrad was a crucial and the most bloodiest battle fought in WW2 that essentially led to the downfall of Hitler’s regime. The combat raged between August 1942 and February 1943, as Soviet and Nazi forces fought over a pivotal industrial city in the heart of Russia: Stalingrad.

Fighting in Stalingrad
The Nazis incurred heavy losses, with over one million killed and 91,000 captured. The Germans never fully recovered from their failure to capture Stalingrad, as it turned the tide of the eastern line in Europe. Three years later, Hitler lost his war.

Battle of Tours, October 10, 732

Battle of Tours Portrait
The Battle of Tours is a little known battle that had huge consequences on the course of history for Europe. Also called the Battle of Poitiers, the battle took place in 732 and was fought between the Carolingian Franks, led by Charles Martel, and Umayyad Caliphate forces, led by Abdul Rahman Al Ghafiqi. Though Muslim forces outnumbered the Franks by thousands, under Martel’s guidance, they managed to drive the intruders off the continent. Historians regard this as the turning point of Christianity and Islam in Europe, with Christianity essentially preserved by the victory of the European forces.

Battle of Gettysburg, July 1-3, 1863

The three-day battle of Gettysburg is regarded as the turning point in the American Civil War. After 2 years of warfare conducted mostly in the South, Confederate general Robert E. Lee decided to take the war to the North. After weeks of maneuvering and skirmishes, the Northern forces, led by George Meade, met the Southern forces in the hills of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

After 2 days of deadlock on the battlefield, Lee decided to fully assault the North’s line by charging with his troops, leading to the infamous slaughter called Pickett’s Charge. Though both sides suffered heavy losses in the bloodiest battle in the Civil War, the South side struggled the most to recover from those losses. The war continued for two years, but the setback at Gettysburg kept the Southern forces on the defensive and entrenched in their own territory, leading to their eventual defeat.

Siege of Yorktown, 1781

Yorktown Surrender
If the American forces had not won the battle of Yorktown in the American Revolutionary War, arguably the United States would not exist today.

Yorktown Fighting Picture
Although the British should have crushed American troops through both sheer number and experience, an unlikely alliance between France and America saved the day for the brittle, newly-founded country. Consequently, the British were overpowered on both land and sea, and after a few months of a siege on Yorktown by both French and American troops, General Lord Cornwallis surrendered his 8,000 men to American forces. Within weeks, America fully claimed their independence from the British Empire.

Battle of Solferino, June 24, 1859

Solferino Battle
The Battle of Solferino is more renowned for not what happened during the fight, but what emerged from it. In the wake of the combat between the Austrian Empire and allied French and Italian forces, thousands of casualties were scattered amongst the ruins, with scarce food, water and medical supplies leading to agonizing deaths.

Start of the Red Cross
The scene set in motion a series of events that changed the entire world. In 1863, A Swiss businessman, Jean-Henri Dunant, traveled through the area after the battle and horrified by the scene of thousands of unattended wounded still on the battlefield, established the International Committee of the Red Cross. A year later, Durant and his Red Cross members organized the Geneva Convention to provide basic humanitarian guidelines and rules for war, the first of the four that exist today. To this day, the Red Cross provides aid the world-over and the Geneva Conventions institute and uphold international law.
