Feeding polar bears from a tank; ca. 1950

 Russian tanks were designed to be driven with one arm.

“There’s a good bear, now go and maim those Nazis on this other side of this hill.”

This is quite possibly the most Russian photograph ever taken.

Polar bears look really freaking cute, but they’re the only animal that actively predates on humans.

Wolves will give it a long and hard thought about whether they want to attack humans. Polar bears? Nope. If they see you, and you can’t protect yourself or seek shelter, you’re dead.

Pioneers of Alaska posing for a photo in the mid 1940s

That fellow on the right is a looker. Definitely fits the stereotypical Alaskan man image - handsome, big, strong, outdoorsy. His hands look quite large to me, though it may just be that the two fellows next to him are average sized.
