A Horse Named Reckless. Incredible !!! Great story about a Korean war hero.
This is a pretty good video/story. Pass it on. Reckless was a pack horse during the Korean war, and she carried re-coilless rifles, ammunition and supplies to Marines. Nothing too unusual about that, lots of animals got pressed into doing pack chores in many wars. But this horse did something more..during the battle for a location called Outpost Vegas, this mare made 50 trips up and down the hill, on the way up she carried ammunition, and on the way down she carried wounded soldiers. What was so amazing? Well she made every one of those trips without anyone leading her. I can imagine a horse carrying a wounded soldier, being smacked on the rump at the top of the hill, and heading back to the “safety” of the rear. But to imagine the same horse, loaded with ammunition, and trudging back to the battle where artillery is going off, without anyone leading her is unbelievable. To know that she would make 50 of those trip is unheard of. Hell, how many horses would even make it back to the barn once, let alone return to you in the field one single time. So here is a clip of her story and photos to prove where she was and what she did…

In space there is a lot energy for free. Sun is delivering huge amounts of it, every second, in all directions. What if solar panels would be moved in outer space? Collecting solar energy would be most effective. Still remain problems such as storage and transfer to Earth. A Scottish university has solutions for these problems. Solutions of these problems could make nonessential the fuel prices. So far these are still just scottish dreams… But in future it is possible for us to be lucky owners of microwave ovens and/or cars connected to the satellite… for charging the batteries.

it seems like I can hear

Are you already tired by all the harsh noise of the unleashed world? We can send you Far from the Madding Crowd, at the quietest place on Earth. Deep down in the abyss of silence, where nobody can resist too long, you will discover a new world of sounds. The quiet chamber amplifies even the slightest noise, making people accurately aware of anything, including the sound of their heart beating. In fact, the sensation is so intense — including the possibility of hallucinations — that no one has been able to stay in the room longer than 45 minutes.
