  • I really like this show, but I had to say thumbs down this time(which I hear did the same as an thumbs up in the algorithm). The reason being that the music is to load and the voices are to low. I can't hear what you're saying over the music. Please turn down the music, and speak loader. Thank you, and good luck.

  • I find it amazing and stupifying that our culture still villifys women who defend themselves and or loved ones let alone their beloved countries. Men who rule are rarely called killers

The album is crushing it right now but it's on the new releases not the old releases.....

  • This man is either atheist or avengelical always trying to pretend he knows about Islam and that he's in good faith but as a Muslim we I know what he's up to, and it ain't pretty its ones like him that is the reason for rise in "atheism" and its like now what you think pushing a confused Christian away from trying out the Religion of Islam if they were to be confused about Christianity and wanted to seek Truth in Islam would be better to push them to "atheism" or a the other way around Islam to Christianity i mean to think not believing in a Creator is Better that alone is The most Absurd thing To do or think Period. Seek The Truth From Allah wa Subhannatallah "God" The Almighty Allah wa Subhannatallah and Truth Shall Come if One is Truly seeking Guidance With An Open Truthful Will! Regardless of Faith From One Brother To All Peace To All I hope!

  • Strange to think that status-seeking and greed shaped a society in this way. It's extremely vulgar... And we still have a long way to go before these primitive failings disappear from our society.

  • So wool on the body actually would cause the body to stay warm almost like a prototype wet suit in water so those people did not die from shock. They slipped and fell. This Ditch could have been lead to deep water and maybe he could not swim.. the woman could have been pulled by the current and or had slipped and choked to death on the water because she also could not swim. I’m willing to bet most of these people did not know how to tread let alone swim

  • It is visibly that the corsett dosn't fit her right. The fabric buckels between the bones. That is a sign of a badly made corsett. I sewed my own corsett exaktly to my mesurements and i feel fine in it. I can exersice and dosn't feel a diffrent to not wearing an Corsett. I don't wear my corsett tigt. I can only say good things about my corsett. It helpes me too have a straigth back and helped train the musels needet for it. Without the corsett i woudn't have learnd to straightend my back.

  • I love how they put a human face in telling the story of the Great Fire. The personal lives of actual, real-life merchants and people who lived at the time it happened. Made this a more interesting documentary-you can identify with people of various walks of life and their reactions to the fire. Again, very well done. Plus it’s Dr. Suzannah Lipscomb. 👍

  • Hi, I know this isn't the topic of this video, but maybe someone needs to hear this. God loves you and He always will. If you're going through anything and you have no friends or family and you're lonely, you can look up and talk to Jesus like a friend. I don't want to scare anyone, but the end times are coming and if you haven't given your life to Jesus, you will unfortunately end up burning in hell for all eternity. So if you need a friend or you feel like your life is empty, you know Who will always be there.

  • In India we still have a lot of general stores and high street shops and after watching this series I’ve learnt to appreciate their personalised service and shopping experience much more. We still have accounts with the nearby general stores, medicine shops and still love to buy clothing from individual retailers in addition to the chain stores. 💖

  • Just think: the corset persisted for not mere decades, but literally centuries. It’s almost like it was a supportive undergarment and the waist definition was mainly the job of padding and judicious use of altering photographic negatives.

  • Not victorian staircases, but I visited Coimbra's University (portugal) once, and there's a staircase called Escadas Monumentais that weren't narrow, but were very irregular as the stone got old and didn't have a handrail. I gotta say. I planned every step. Probably took me 10 minutes to complete 125 stairs, and it wasn't more cause I was rushed by peer pressure xD I have no idea how students do it everyday
